Talking with Tammy McDonald Vice President Northeast Region – RxOwnership at McKesson, about the importance of preserving and supporting women pharmacy ownership and the impact on community health.
Ensuring the smooth transfer of pharmacy ownership Pharmacy ownership transfer has never been more complex. With that in mind, RxOwnership® was created with one purpose: to help pharmacy professionals with the sale, purchase or transfer of independent pharmacies.

Whether you’re looking to sell a chain of pharmacies that’s been in your family for generations, or purchase your very first pharmacy business, RxOwnership is the ultimate resource for everything from planning to staffing.
How and why we started In 2007, we discovered that many of our long-time customers and prospective owners had few tools or resources to help them get answers they could trust when they were ready to buy, start or sell a pharmacy. Since then, the RxOwnership program has recruited a skilled team of ownership advisors to manage the growing demand for RxOwnership services on a regional level.
Today, the team works closely with their customers and McKesson Field Sales, Marketing, Analytics and Finance to help with nearly every aspect of buying or selling a pharmacy. Since the start of the program, the RxOwnership team has helped more than 4,000 pharmacy owners through the pharmacy transition/ownership process.
No-fee, experienced advising for every phase of your pharmacy career There is no service quite like RxOwnership. We’re not a broker. Instead, we are here to share our industry expertise and facilitate your ownership goals. We never charge a fee and there are no obligations or contracts to sign.
