BUSINESS BYTE: Jollys Pharmacy wins top Caribbean award

The Sigma Award signifies Jollys Pharmacy’s noteworthy contribution in the health sector in the Caribbean

The ethos and vision of Jolly’s Pharmacy is to provide quality healthcare with no compromise. The company showed resilience and adaptation in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria as they shifted their focus from dispensing prescriptions to providing a multitude of services. That level of service has been recognized regionally, as Jolly’s Pharmacy has won this year’s Caribbean Pharmacy Sigma Award, highlighting the company as the best pharmacy in the Caribbean for 2018. This historic achievement was conferred upon the company at the annual Caribbean Pharmacy Association (CAP) awards held in the Cayman Islands on Saturday.

“We are humbled to be recognized as the best pharmacy in the eyes of our peers and the regional body that represents the practice of pharmacy. Over the years, the work we have done in the health sector validates our mission to redefine the level of care to the public we are dedicated to serve on a daily basis. There is no other recognition that could mean more to us,” says senior pharmacist and Head of Public Health and Public relations at Jolly’s Pharmacy, Carlton Lanquedoc.

Lanquedoc was also recognized by the Caribbean Pharmacy Association

Mr. Lanquedoc, who represented the company at this year’s awards, also received a President’s award from CAP for his dedicated service to pharmacy in the Caribbean. Mr. Lanquedoc is an executive member of CAP and well known public health stalwart who has helped the pharmacy become a beacon of best practice.

“This recognition is a reflection of our Manager-Mr. Orrin Jolly, executive and team who go out of their way each day to address the needs of our patients. We are indeed elated to share this award with every Jolly’s Pharmacy employee that contributed to this milestone,” Mr. Lanquedoc declared.
