Lowcountry local First’s mission is to advocate for the benefits of a local living economy by strengthening community support of our local independent businesses and farmers.

At Health Mart we care about our patients. In fact, we go “above and beyond” what the large chain stores or other pharmacies can offer. Since we are locally owned, we choose to take the time needed to provide better care.

Our mission is to represent the economic and professional interests of independent pharmacies by providing leadership, vision, and a collective voice for our members in the healthcare marketplace. Our goal is to level the playing field for our member pharmacies by providing innovative, targeted programs to benefit our entire membership.
