The benefits Sigma Healthcare can bring to your pharmacy

Sponsored Content

From modest beginnings in Melbourne in 1912, Sigma Healthcare has grown into a vibrant, nationwide network servicing community and hospital pharmacies.

Sigma Healthcare offers several well-established and trusted community pharmacy brands such as Amcal and Guardian, low-cost solutions PharmaSave and Discount Drug Store, and WholeLife Pharmacy & Healthfoods – a newer entry to the pharmacy market that caters to the changing needs in some communities by offering a holistic approach to health, wellness and wellbeing.

Along with the community pharmacy brands offered by Sigma Healthcare, they also provide a range of services to pharmacies that include a nationwide supply network, business and financial services, marketing support, training, and more.

To demonstrate the value and support that Sigma Healthcare brings to their pharmacists every day, they have produced a video featuring their new state-of-the-art $300 million distribution centre and testimonials from pharmacy owners outlining the three key benefits they bring to pharmacy businesses.

  • Flexibility and Choice 

Matching pharmacists with the right retail services and commercial fit for their unique business and community needs.

  • Leading Technology

Industry-leading infrastructure, systems and people to ensure the efficiency and accurate supply of products and solutions.

  • Trusted People

Access to a team of trusted industry experts and pharmacy advisors that pharmacists can rely on for ongoing support and advice.

This is what pharmacy owners featured in the video had to say about being a part of the Sigma Healthcare family:

“The biggest benefit we’ve had working with Sigma and Amcal are the genuine people we’ve met along the way. The people who help us with everything we need for our pharmacy every day.” – Grace, Amcal, Endeavour Hills VIC.

“One of the biggest benefits of working with Sigma and having a Discount Drug Store is monthly visits from our Business Development Manager.  They help us achieve our business objectives which allows us to focus on patient care, on medication management, and on our professional services.” – Quinn, Discount Drug Store, Menai NSW.

“As a pharmacist, you want to be able to help your community. And when looking for a brand it’s important they have the same mission as you. That’s why we chose Sigma and Guardian Pharmacy, they have that real sense of care and promoting health in our community.” – Ruth, Guardian Pharmacy, Mooloolah Valley QLD.

“We chose Sigma’s PharmaSave brand because they’re a good value branding option, provide local area marketing and access to a great product range.” – Peter, PharmaSave, Richlands QLD.

“We chose Sigma and WholeLife because we were looking for something unique and something that would resonate with the local community. Sigma and WholeLife offer a holistic approach to health. We can offer healthy eating and healthy lifestyle options as well as over the counter medications and prescriptions.” – Nick, WholeLife, West End QLD.

“Sigma helps us better serve our community by providing us with systems that allow us to deliver a world-class retail experience, which enables us to focus on the day-to-day pharmacy operations.” – Adam, Discount Drug Store, Beachmere QLD.

“Since we joined Sigma, our margins have improved year-on-year and our profitability has grown. This has allowed us to invest in infrastructure like our Rowa dispense unit which helps our pharmacists work more efficiently and spend more time interacting with our customers.” – Fiona, Amcal, Nambour QLD.
