Greetings, just a quick blog article today to recognize North Shore Pharmacy, a pharmacy in the iCare provider network. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporters Mary Spicuzza and Eddie Morales featured North Shore in an article titled How the new owners of an 89-year-old pharmacy reinvented and found a simple, local way to administer vaccines.
"We've been working with Kyle Beyer and his team for several years. iCare first established a relationship with him while he was working for Pick N Save Pharmacy but expanded the relationship since he took over the ownership of North Shore Pharmacy," said iCare Director of Pharmacy Services, Sarah Dykstra. "We have a great working relationship with them, and we hope to continue to build it."
Located at 1421 E. Capitol Drive in Shorewood, North Shore Pharmacy is convenient for many iCare members. In addition to COVID-19 vaccinations, North Shore Pharmacy has also been active in COVID-19 testing: They have conducted more than 3,000 molecular tests and more than 500 rapid-result tests. As Beyer states in the article, there are certain services independent pharmacies can do that large chain pharmacy just aren't able to do. "We take a lot of pride in being able to be flexible and quickly adapt to those needs."
Congratulations for being recognized for your role in helping us move past the pandemic. There's a long way to go, but we'll get there. Check out the article...it's a good read!
