Nonprofit health care provider ARcare of Augusta said Friday that it has acquired Polk Pharmacy in England, Arkansas.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The pharmacy, which will be renamed ARcare Pharmacy during the first quarter of 2023, has been owned by Scott Polk since 1992.
Polk said he has accepted a position with ARcare as senior vice president of retail pharmacy.
“I’d like to thank the people of England and surrounding communities for the incredible support they have shown to me and my family over the years,” Polk said in a news release. “Being a pharmacist in my hometown has been the opportunity of a lifetime, and I will forever cherish the memories and friendships.
“As the pharmacy transitions to the ARcare network, and I join the ARcare team, I am confident patients will receive the same high standard of care and quality service that they have come to expect.”
ARcare operates 75 clinics throughout Arkansas, Mississippi and Kentucky.
