The following mission statements are proclamations made by the 3 major drugstore companies in Southern California. We focus on Walgreens, RiteAid, and CVS because if they could carry ostomy bags then ostomy patients would have an ease of mind in the event of an ‘ran-out-of-bags emergency’ as major drugstores hours of operation run much longer than your local pharmacy or medical supply store. Regardless that you think stoma patients should be well-stocked at all times or should be utilizing overnight delivery…overnight delivery doesn’t work when you are out of bags and federalholidays shut down even delivery services like FedEx and UPS. Stoma patients deserve accessibility to their bags even if it’s a basic kit just to hold them off until their regular supplies get delivered. Our story is a prime example of what goes on with stoma patients.
We are asking or these major drugstores to hear our voice and uphold their mission statement to hear us and come up with a way to alleviate this loophole that can be detrimental to stoma patients.
Millions of times a day, close to home and across the country, we’re helping people on their path to better health.
We’re reinventing pharmacy to have a more active, supportive role in each person’s unique health experience and in the greater health care environment—from advising on prescriptions to helping manage chronic and specialty conditions to providing quality walk-in medical care and pharmacy benefits management.
Because we’re present in so many moments, in ways that are more affordable and effective, we’re able to positively influence health behavior and shape the future of health care for people, businesses and communities.
Health is everything.
