DUBUQUE, Iowa – Hartig Drug Company and Grand River Medical Group are pleased to announce a partnership to open a Hartig Drug pharmacy inside the newly developed Grand River Medical Group-West location on Westmark Drive. This partnership demonstrates Hartig Drug’s commitment to collaborating with other local health care providers, as well as Grand River Medical Group’s mission to providing patient-centered, high-quality healthcare to patients of all ages.
The new Hartig Drug location will provide added convenience to the tri-state community, offering a full-service pharmacy with a drive-thru. In addition, Grand River Medical Group patients will have the benefits of receiving care and their prescriptions in the same location.
Construction on the Grand River Medical Group-West location is underway and is expected to be completed in spring 2022. With the added benefit of the pharmacy location, additional permits and site work will continue over the next month. This includes phase two of construction, allowing a buildout on the westside of the building to accommodate the drive-thru for the pharmacy.
“Grand River Medical Group is excited to build local relationships that benefit our patients and community,” said Justin Hafner, CEO of Grand River Medical Group. “It is great to partner with another local healthcare provider that is working towards the same goals as Grand River – better the health of our community while also focusing on the patient experience.”
The pharmacy will be smaller than traditional Hartig Drug locations in Dubuque while still offering pharmacy services and a wide selection of medical supplies and over-the-counter medications. The new pharmacy location will operate during the same hours as the clinic and give Grand River Medical Group patients access to their necessary pharmaceuticals prior to or following appointments to enhance patient care.
“Hartig Drug is proud to partner with Grand River Medical Group to complement its healthcare services with Hartig Drug’s pharmacy expertise and a team of community pharmacists,” said Charlie Hartig, CEO of Hartig Drug Company. “Our role as pharmacists has never been more critical, and our partnership with Grand River will enable us to provide the tri-state area with convenient access to high-quality, personalized pharmacy care in close coordination with their physician.”
