Ron Lanton - Government Affairs Strategist for the Pharmacy Podcast Show interviews Phil LaFoy with Blount Specialty Pharmacy.
Blount Specialty Pharmacy began as Greenbelt Village Discount Pharmacy in July of 1982. Roger Givens opened the pharmacy with two employees. Jim Pershing joined the practice on January 1, 1984 as co-owner, and Terry Webb became associated with the practice in January of 1987 as a partner. Aaron Clark joined us in May of 1996 and Phil LaFoy in November of 1996. Aaron and Phil are now co-owners of the pharmacies.
Blount moved into their Gill Street location at the Armory Place Medical Building January 1, 1989 and changed their name to Blount Discount Pharmacy. Blount Memorial Hospital was the second location which opened in 1994, and in 1996 Blount Discount West on Montgomery Lane opened. Since that time Blount Discount Pharmacy has introduced several pharmacy practice innovations in Blount County including our convenient Drive-Thru windows, free delivery service, Medicine-On-Time, and “The Sweet Spot” diabetes management program.
As time has passed, and the company has grown, has added other pharmacist to their staff, now totaling 16 pharmacists. All of their pharmacists have been trained in patient counseling and continue to stay abreast of the latest developments in pharmaceutical care through continuing education.
Most of Blount's technicians have successfully passed the National Certification Examination and are Certified Pharmacy Technicians.
