Hy-Vee purchases Family Pharmacy

D.J. Bice

Hy-Vee grocery store in Peru is buying Family Pharmacy, which is owned and operated by Illinois Valley Community Hospital, Peru.

Prescription records at Family Pharmacy automatically will be transferred and available at Hy-Vee starting May 12. Prescription orders will be filled at Family Pharmacy until May 9.

Those with prescriptions at Family Pharmacy do not need to take any action. All prescription records automatically will be transferred, said Gene Vogelgesang, IVCH public relations director.

The pharmacy has been losing money for several years and it was strictly a business decision on the part of the hospital to sell the pharmacy, Vogelgesang said.
