ACHC is an independent, private, not-for-profit corporation established in 1986. The Association for Home & Hospice Care (AHHC) of North Carolina established ACHC to ensure quality, patient-focused, clearly written accreditation standards for in-home aide services. The values that guided our initial standards continue to lead our organization today.
The National Community Pharmacists Association, founded in 1898 as the National Association of Retail Druggists (NARD), represents the pharmacist owners, managers, and employees of more than 22,000 independent community pharmacies across the United States. The nation’s independent pharmacies, independent pharmacy franchises, and independent chains dispense nearly half of the nation’s retail prescription medicines.
Our mission is to represent the economic and professional interests of independent pharmacies by providing leadership, vision, and a collective voice for our members in the healthcare marketplace. Our goal is to level the playing field for our member pharmacies by providing innovative, targeted programs to benefit our entire membership.
