The Town of Cornwall will soon be getting a state of the art pharmacy and health centre to meet the needs of its growing population.
The Murphy’s Pharmacy and Health Centre will open in 2011 and will include a full service pharmacy, expanded front store, and a multi-disciplinary health centre.
The health centre will be built on the Trans-Canada Highway between Sam's Restaurant and the Imperial Oil gas station.
Dr. David Stewart, the only family doctor currently practicing in Cornwall, will have an office in the new centre and is hopeful more doctors will join him.
“A new facility is long overdue, it will greatly assist in attracting badly needed health care professionals to the community of Cornwall. I am proud to be a part of this exciting project,” says Stewart.
The need for a full service, multi-disciplinary health centre for the town of Cornwall was identified by Dr. Stewart and Patrick MacFadyen, former mayor of Cornwall. MacFadyen was instrumental in bringing Dr. Stewart, Murphy’s Pharmacies, and other stakeholders to the table over the past 12 months to move the project forward.
“I am very pleased to hear this news,” says Ron MacKinley, MLA for Cornwall-Meadowbank. “Murphy’s Pharmacies has been a great asset to the community over the years. Cornwall is a growing community and more space is needed so I am glad to see they are expanding the pharmacy and clinic, and I hope this will help to attract more doctors.”
Murphy’s Pharmacies currently operates a chain of nine independent pharmacies in Prince Edward Island. Murphy’s Pharmacies also operates a Home Health Care division, a Health Education Centre, a Travel Health Clinic, and Murphy’s Community Centre. The company is Island owned and operated and is a multiple national award winner in the areas of health promotion, patient care, innovation, and charitable work.
“We have had a loyal clientele at our current location in Cornwall for many years but the town is growing and the people are looking for more products and expanded health services,” says Ray Murphy, president of Murphy’s Pharmacies, “Murphy’s Pharmacies is very pleased to be expanding our offering in this area and to be giving the people of Cornwall a great facility to house the health services they are looking for.”
