Honouring 40 Years of Pharmacy Services

As Australia’s leading pharmacy service provider, HPS and its network of pharmacies are proud to be celebrating 40 years of operation.

In 1975, HPS Pharmacies was founded by a sole pharmacist who began by servicing a small 28 bed nursing home in South Australia. Today, HPS is owned by 12 partners, has 400 employees and services over 280 clients nation-wide, including private hospitals, public hospitals, cancer centres, correctional facilities, veterinary clinics, and fertility and IVF clinics.

HPS and its network of pharmacies is guided by a principle to innovate solutions for its valued clients, and it is these systems and innovations that are a culmination of HPS’ unparalleled knowledge and experience within the pharmacy industry over the past 40 years.

HPS and its network of pharmacies acknowledges and appreciates the ongoing support of its suppliers, clients, and patients, and looks forward to continuing to deliver the highest quality of service for many decades to come.
