For the past 60 years, Putvin Healthmart in Manistique, MI has been serving our community with fast, friendly, professional service and provides customers and patients with the highest-quality medicines and health products. Whether it’s local residents picking up their prescriptions or travelers needing first aid supplies to treat a sunburn, our neighborhood pharmacy has the knowledge and experience to provide you with the right advice when you need it.
Current owner, Mark Rohde, knew at a very young age he wanted to follow in his grandmother and father’s footsteps and became a third generation Registered Pharmacist in 1979, graduating from Ferris State University. After gaining experience and soaking up every bit of information he could get his hands on, he came back to help implement the new wave of electronic prescription ordering, filling and billing and installed the very first pharmacy computer system in Manistique.
Since then, Putvin Healthmart has continued to evolve and goes beyond filling prescriptions. Pharmacy staff take the time to talk with patients, providing personalized care and lasting patient health. They follow a motto of “Our goal here is not to simply meet expectations, but to exceed them.” Mark added.
Whether it’s one-on-one counseling or communicating with patients’ insurance to make sure they are getting the best price, Mark’s priority in taking patients’ health and care one step further awarded him the 2019 Community Pharmacist of the Year award by the Michigan Society of Community Pharmacists.
Their location at 211 South Cedar Street, has recently gone under a few renovations including a new back door entrance with an easily accessible ramp, a private office for Medicare D plan consultations and future vaccinations, along with an expanded Pick Up counter to make customers' experience that much more comfortable.
In keeping up with the needs of today’s patients, Putvin Healthmart also offers online prescription refills and transfers. Simply visit their website at www.putvinhealthmart.com to learn more.
Outside of the health and wellness department, they also have giftables & home decor, greeting cards, cosmetics, personal care items, kids toys, gift cards and much more to browse. They are open seven days a week and their phone number is 906-341-5494.
