Hillcrest Pharmacy & Compounding was founded in Frederick, MD in 2017 by a certified team comprised of Kmart alumni pharmacists and technicians with more than 75 combined years of experience. Our team is committed to the highest standards for pharmacy practices. Melissa, Dave and Amy worked together in the Columbia Kmart pharmacy. They were such a great team, and enjoyed the patients they served so much that after Kmart closed, they moved the whole team down the strip to open Hillcrest Pharmacy & Compounding of Lancaster! Partnering with Hillcrest, they will provide exceptional service and care to our patients!
At Hillcrest Pharmacies, we specialize in compounding for both human and veterinary patients. You will find a full range of pharmaceutical care products including name brand and generic prescription medications, specialty drugs, over-the-counter medications, high quality vitamins and supplements, natural and homeopathic remedies. We hope that you will find time to visit our pharmacy and give us the opportunity to become the pharmacy of choice for you, your family and all your pets. We are excited to serve you in our new Lancaster County store!
