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 430 employees and services over 280 clients nation-wide, including private hospitals, public hospitals, cancer centres, correctional facilities and veterinary 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.

"I have worked with the team at HPS Pharmacies in the Oncology Unit at John Fawkner Hospital for the last four years... The service provided is exemplary - nothing is ever too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend HPS to any facility."
"Things have improved for my oncology service and patient care since HPS became the oncology pharmacy provider. Specialised drugs are delivered correctly and in a timely manner to my regional practice. HPS staff are always available and pleasant to discuss any issues."
"HPS provides...a comprehensive, responsive, efficient and exact chemotherapy service, vital for the safe provision of treatment to patients in a busy oncology practice."
"As a national group based in South Australia, I have always found HPS to be responsive in its approach, focused on quality and always cognisant of the need to recognise the issues pertinent to the organisation they service."
"The HPS Group's network of pharmacies' oncology service to patients, nurses and specialists at Calvary North Adelaide is friendly, professional and timely. We are very pleased with the help and support we receive from HPS and the management of our ever expanding cancer services."
"One of the major challenges facing South Australian Prison Health Service (SAPHS) is the ability to deliver medications to a complex diverse group in a difficult environment. The introduction of the mediSACHe delivery system has had a significant impact on our ability to deliver a better service to incarcerated adults in SA."
"HPS is great to do business with. The people are courteous and prompt, and the drugs are price competitive with our current wholesalers. HPS' network of pharmacies provide efficient delivery, and have an extensive range of pharmaceutical resources on offer. If they don’t have stock in, they will endeavour to deliver our order the next day."
"Adelaide Veterinary Specialist and Referral Centre prides itself in providing advanced specialist care to the animal world. HPS offer us 24 hour delivery and excellent customer service. Our out-of-hours Emergency Centre strives to provide quality and value, and HPS help us to deliver this with its pricing on human drugs."
