Medicap Pharmacy has announced they have a new pharmacist joining their team. Derek Townsend grew up in Perry, Iowa, and attended Central College in Pella. While at Central, he participated in basketball, cross country and track, majored in chemistry and met his wife Amy (Ledvina) Townsend.
After working for Pioneer for a year and a half, Derek decided to go back to school at the University of Iowa and get his Doctorate in Pharmacy. Currently, he and his wife Amy live in an acreage just south of Chelsea and spend their time fixing up their old farmhouse, raising cattle and goats and attending church activities.
"We are very blessed to live so close to family and friends and we hope to raise a family of our own in the STC community," said Townsend. "I chose to work at Medicap Pharmacy, not only for the short drive, wonderful coworkers and the opportunity to make new, life-long friendships; but because healthcare is changing fast, thus presenting new challenges for me. I believe that Medicap is uniquely organized to adapt faster and is therefore able to serve patients better than any other pharmacy. I am looking forward to meeting, helping and serving my community with their health care needs.
Joins pharmacy team at Medicap in Toledo.
Tim Madsen RPh, the owner of Medicap Pharmacy commented, "I hired Derek because of his great enthusiasm for pharmacy, his strong knowledge base and his caring personality. He will be a great asset to Medicap and the community and I look forward to working with him for many years to come."
Medicap Pharmacy is located at 108 2nd Avenue West and has been serving the community since 1984.
