A Pharmacy on a Mission

HealthDirect is 100% employee-owned. We’re a purpose-driven team on a mission to provide personalized care in every interaction – with our clients, their residents, and our fellow employee-owners.

A Bold Vision

Hi, I’m Brian Scott, president of HealthDirect Pharmacy Services. In 2018, I announced my vision for HealthDirect – to become the premier LTC pharmacy services provider. “Premier” is not about being the biggest; it about being the best. It means, if given the opportunity, LTC communities would choose us as their partner.

Reaching our vision required a focus on our people and culture. HealthDirect has reached significant growth milestones in the last decade. As we continue to grow through strategic acquisition, we look to partner with pharmacy owners whose approach to business and values align with that of HealthDirect.  I firmly believe that cultural synergy is the key to organizational success.

If you have any questions or would like to have a conversation about your pharmacy becoming part of our family, please reach out! My e-mail is, my office line is 888-331-3883 ext. 2650, and my cell is 315-783-8663 – call or text any time.

People-first Focus

Coming into work and learning that you have a new employer can be quite unsettling.  We get it.  Many of our fellow-owners have been there and can relate.  Our conversation team will meet one-on-one with each employee to answer questions and provide reassurance.

Operational Transition

There are a lot of moving pieces when transitioning the day-to-day operations of your pharmacy.  Our operations, finance, and IT teams will be onsite to understand the details of your processes, and together, we will develop a road map to ensure continuity of service during the transition.

Client Care

With you, we will meet individually with each of your partners.  Together we will walk them through the steps we are taking to prevent any interruption in service.  Our goal is for them to feel confident in our ability to continue to provide the high level of care they are accustomed to.
