Together, our Mercy Pharmacy co-workers bring more than 96 years of pharmacy experience to work with them each day. And starting Monday, Nov. 4, their days will extend just a little later.

New hours for Mercy Pharmacy, located inside Mercy Clinic at 800 W. Laurel, Independence, will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The pharmacy is open to the general community and provides a full range of name-brand and generic prescription and over-the-counter medications. The pharmacy accepts most insurances and offers drive-thru service.

“We’re extending our hours an additional 30 minutes into the evening to better accommodate the community, people getting off work, etc., and the early visitors to our Mercy Convenient Care,” said Bill Sorrels, DPH, Mercy pharmacist. “And I know we co-workers don’t look that old, but together we have more than nine decades of experience in pharmacy service.”

Sorrels himself has been a practicing pharmacist for more than 36 years, including 12 years in hospital pharmacy and 24 years in retail pharmacy work and extensive experience in compounding pharmacy. Other team members include certified pharmacy tech Kristin Keenan, and techs Dyann Trollope and Cindy True.
