McKesson selected the regional award winners based on performance against several key criteria, including: customer educational programs, use of technology to increase efficiencies and ensure accuracy, product selection, in-store programs and design, local marketing and advertisement and community involvement.

"Our regional pharmacy of the year award winners consistently provide patients with excellent customer service. Through hard work and dedication to their customers, award winners exemplify why Health Mart was recently ranked No. 1 in customer satisfaction nationwide," said Tim Canning, president, Health Mart. "It's an honor to congratulate all of our regional award winners for their commitment to delivering the highest level of pharmaceutical care."

"At Chetco Pharmacy, our number one priority is to always exceed the expectations of our customers," said Tim Yantis, RPh and owner of Chetco Pharmacy. "As an independent pharmacy, we're faced with an increasingly competitive marketplace, but one that is also ripe with great opportunity for growth. McKesson and Health Mart have partnered with us every step of the way, providing us with the resources to create a best-in-class pharmacy that our customers can count on for the highest level of personal attention. We're thrilled to be named a Pharmacy of the Year."

Yantis, a native Oregonian, has served as the full-time pharmacist for Chetco Pharmacy for the last 11 years and has worked at the pharmacy for the last 28 years. Chetco Pharmacy is a second-time recipient of the Pharmacy of the Year award having also won in 2005.
