Our History



Medical Pharmacies

In 1957, pharmacist Erast Huculak opened the doors of his first Medical Pharmacy in Oshawa, Ontario. Erast was a forward thinker who provided his customers with medication counseling before it became standard practice because he cared about the comfort, health and well-being of each of his customers. He extended his service by providing prescriptions deliveries by bicycle to seniors and customers who could not make it to the store.

In 1987, a partnership was created with three pharmacists Stephen Pearson, Sydney Shrott and Richard Sevazlian, all whom had executive experience providing pharmacy service to long term care homes. Steve, Syd, Richard and Carole McKiee continue to guide Medical Pharmacies into the future as members of the Board of Directors. Richard actively oversees the direction of Medical Pharmacies as the Chairman of the Board.

The legacy of caring for people and exceptional service continues to be an integral part of the fabric of the company.


Ontario Medical Supply:

In 1974 Ontario Medical Supply (OMS), a small three person medical supply company, went through its first significant expansion.

In 1993, OMS moved its head office, warehousing and distri-bution facilities to a new location situated at 848 Belfast Road, Ottawa.

By 2005, OMS had significantly outgrown this facility and set-out to design and build a new office in Ottawa. This new facility, completed in July 2007 permitted to centralize all non-retail ser-vices to this location. The 1100 Algoma Road location also brings a medical products showroom to healthcare professionals and clients.
