PIPCo joins NCPA

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Shortly after the Pharmacy Providers of Oklahoma joined a group representing the nation's independent community pharmacies and their patients, another organization also has signed up.

The National Community Pharmacists Association said Monday that the Partners in Pharmacy Cooperative have signed up for NCPA membership. PIPCo is an independent pharmacy cooperative owned and managed by its independent community pharmacy members in the north-central United States.

“PIPCo is dedicated to the support of independent pharmacies and keeping them profitable in a competitive marketplace,” said Robert Greenwood, NCPA president. “We at NCPA share that same dedication to independent pharmacy’s future and ability to continue providing expert medication counseling and other cost-saving services to patients. While PIPCo’s leadership and many of its members have long been a part of NCPA, we are glad to now have all PIPCo members join us.”
