Regent Drugs of New Mexico is a cooperative buying and advertising group. It was established in 1972 by a group of local, independent pharmacists. They saw the importance of a “neighborhood” pharmacy. It was decided to come together to exchange ideas and improve their buying opportunities in order to remain competitive in the market place. The founding members were Robert Ghattas, Victor Castillo, Ken Corraza, and Ted Ahr, all Albuquerque area pharmacists. They knew that they wanted a strong presence of independent pharmacies in New Mexico. Through the years, they have expanded to other areas of the state and the El Paso, Texas area, and are now 40 plus members strong. Regent pharmacies provide progressive pharmacy services with emphasis on patient care. The following services also include:
- Patient drug therapy management
- Delivery Service
- Medical Supplies and equipment
- Medical compression hosiery and garments
- Wound Care Supplies
- Patient Wellness programs
Regent Drugs of New Mexico is committed to health care in New Mexico.
