The pharmacy business is more competitive than ever and margins continue to shrink, thanks to rising drug costs and pressure from pharmacy benefit managers.

To compete with the big box retailers, independent pharmacies need a distributor of pharmaceutical products that is dedicated to their success.
Choosing the right pharmaceuticals distributor is one of the most important keys to managing an independent pharmacy.
The right pharmaceuticals distributor will not only offer highly competitive pricing on brand and generic drugs and other pharmacy products, but extraordinary customer support and value-added services that can help independents compete for customers, increase sales, streamline administration and improve productivity.
For many independents, the right pharmaceuticals distributor is no longer one that doesn’t serve the best interest of community pharmacies, but an independent focused wholesale pharmaceutical distributor like H. D. Smith.

As the largest independent wholesale pharmaceuticals distributor in the country, we offer access to competitive pricing, a broad range of products, rapid distribution services and a suite of retail and management solutions to help community pharmacies profit and thrive.

Additionally, we are a premier home healthcare equipment distributor, offering products and equipment to this fast-growing and high-margin segment of the industry.
