Former Wakefern exec becomes Stay Local Health COO
NEW YORK — Jonathan Thacker, former VP pharmacy for Wakefern Food Corp., was recently named COO at Stay Local Health.
Stay Local Health is dedicated to buying and operating independent pharmacies in a manner consistent with the pharmacies history. "We want to continue the business you built leveraging as much of your teams time and talent as they desire," the company stated.
According to the company, ownership through Stay Local Health is a viable alternative to selling the prescription file.
Thacker had joined Wakefern Food as VP pharmacy in 2012 from Hannaford Supermarkets and SuperValu Pharmacies. He also served as Wakefern’s HIPAA privacy officer.
