Duquesne University announced Wednesday, June 26, 2019, that it had sold its pharmacy on Centre Avenue in Pittsburgh’s Hill District to UPMC Rx Partners, Inc.

Duquesne University has sold its pharmacy to UPMC’s Rx Partners, Inc.

The pharmacy will continue to operate at the same location under the name “UPMC Community Pharmacies” and remain a community pharmacy, offering services to local residents as well as a teaching facility for Duquesne students and pharmacy residents.

The pharmacy was opened by Duquesne in 2010 on Centre Avenue in Pittsburgh’s Hill District. Neither UPMC nor Duquesne would say how much the pharmacy sold for.

“We know that the Centre Avenue location of the pharmacy provided invaluable services to our neighbors in the Hill District,” said Doug Bricker, dean of the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy. “We committed to this sale after ensuring UMPC can enhance service to the community while allowing access for Duquesne pharmacy students to that clinical environment.”

The pharmacy offers prescription services, chronic disease management, health-risk assessments, diabetes consultation, flu shots, immunizations, and medication reviews among other services.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
