A Legacy of Care

In 2004, Jan and Jeff Hunter opened an independent retail pharmacy with a mission to truly put all customer’s needs first.

In an effort to meet the needs of their growing customer base, the Hunters invested in a state-of-the-art robotic system that exponentially increased their efficiency to fill customer prescriptions. The system fully interfaced with the pharmacy software system and was able to fill over two hundred of the most frequently prescribed medications, including counting, filling bottles, capping, and dropping in a patient holding bin with easy access for the final stage of prescription delivery. This allowed Jeff, the sole pharmacist to focus on interactions with customers and truly understand their needs.

That same pill-counting machine also earned media attention which shaped the future of HunterCare Health. It showed the healthcare community HunterCare’s willingness—and ability—to innovate and garnered the attention of the behavioral health community. The community’s healthcare providers turned to the Hunter’s for help meeting their increasing need for health services. Soon thereafter, HunterCare Health expanded to provide services to the underserved behavioral health community.

The Hunter’s quickly recognized that filling prescriptions was only one of many critical needs. Medications also had to be affordable, and people needed better access to labs and emergency mental health providers. It is from this holistic need and the Hunter’s compassionate commitment to making healthcare services accessible to all populations, that charted the course for HunterCare Health’s family of companies.

What began as a single customer-focused pharmacy has grown into a collaborative circle of care including:

  • Tailored pharmacy solutions for behavioral health and general pharmacy customers
  • Behavioral health closed-door laboratory and testing facilities
  • Behavioral health closed-door pharmacy
  • Integrated software solutions to meet behavioral health patient and provider needs
  • First-responder technology equipment and software solutions that provide immediate connection between behavioral health providers and those in emergency crisis
