Areas of Expertise
In 1963, the late Ed Yurek founded Yurek Pharmacy as a family business at 519 Talbot Street, St. Thomas, Ontario.
When Ed retired in 1996, his eldest son, Pete, who grew up in the pharmacy business, had experienced every position in the company including being a pharmacist, took over the reins. Since then, Pete has worked diligently to keep the Yurek brand at the forefront of the healthcare industry.
A few years later, Yurek expand into offering home healthcare products. It purchased the building next door and hired staff to focus on walkers, wheelchairs, and other durable medical products.
In 2007, Yurek opened its first location in London, now at 555 Wellington Road South, London, Ontario, right across from Parkwood Hospital.
Since 2013, Yurek has been working with Home and Community Care Support Services South West to deliver medical supplies, infusion equipment and related supplies services to patients in Elgin, Norfolk, Oxford, London-Middlesex, Huron, Perth, Grey, and Bruce counties. To help support this initiative, Yurek operates a dedicated facility at 526 Newbold Street, London, Ontario.
