HB Pharmacy from North Arlington, N.J. received the esteemed award for exemplifying what it means to be a Good Neighbor Pharmacy in their commitment to enhancing patient care and lives in local communities. Since Gaspar Bellitti opened HB Drugs in 1964, the family-owned pharmacy has remained committed to its innovative, patient-minded approach to care. Driven in part by his father’s ideals, owner John Bellitti has invested in technology solutions that enable the staff to spend more time with patients. Under his leadership, the pharmacy has adopted an integrated approach to patient care, operating with the core belief that a person’s health and wellness requires a collaborative effort among all healthcare practitioners.
Following the Pharmacy of the Year announcement, retired NASA astronauts and twin brothers Scott and Mark Kelly delivered the keynote address. The astronauts reflected on the experiences and lessons that shaped their perception of teamwork and leadership, discussed how they learned to face and overcome adversities and shared personal strategies for adapting to change.
