Pharmacare Hawaii Bookmark and Share

The roots of Pharmacare Hawaii run incredibly deep. The company’s President and CEO, Byron Yoshino and his family and partners have been serving their verdant enclave for 90 years. Hawaii had become a state just a month before the company’s predecessor, Value Drug, Ltd. (the brainchild of Byron’s grandfather and father), opened its doors in 1959. That operation was itself the descendent of the Yoshino Drug Store, which opened for business way back in 1927.

Today, that entrepreneurial spirit is propelled forward by Byron and co-owner Rick Sakurada. Just as the needs of their customers have evolved over the years, so have the capabilities and mission of Pharmacare Hawaii. In the 1980s they became the first company in Hawaii to offer home infusion services, providing IV treatment in the comfort of a patient’s home. In the 1990s they had the distinction of being the first independent pharmacy contracted by the Hawaii Medical Service Association to dispense the biologic drug Enbrel to treat chronic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

In the ensuing years they have added eight additional pharmacies and diversified their suite of highly personalized services to include enteral nutrition and long-term care. With 90 years of experience, countless lives touched, and a lasting commitment to Care Done Right, Pharmacare Hawaii is everything a Good Neighbor should be!
