Since 2005, Guardian Pharmacy of Jacksonville has been serving residents and caregivers in long-term care communities with one goal:  to provide exceptional support to the communities we partner with so that they can focus on providing the best possible care to the residents they serve.

Our leadership team is passionate about the industry, our partners, and the residents whom we are privileged to serve, which drives us to accomplish our goal.

As presidents empowered with local autonomy decision making, our success is uniquely tied to the satisfaction of our customers. Our team includes pharmacists, certified pharmacy technicians, billing specialists, medical record specialists, nurse account managers, and licensed consultant pharmacists who demonstrate expertise and embrace a customer-centric philosophy.


Guardian Pharmacy of Jacksonville currently services customers throughout the First Coast area including Nassau, Baker, Duval, Clay, and St. Johns counties. We also service Leon, Suwannee, Alachua, Putnam, Flagler, and all counties in between. With six additional locations across Florida, we provide statewide coverage to Florida’s long-term care communities.

Because we know every customer is unique, as are the residents in their care, Guardian offers medication compliance solutions tailored to meet our customers’ specific needs. We work hand in hand with our partner communities to identify the dispensing system and ordering process that ensures medication availability, ease of use, and regulatory compliance.

Services include but are not limited to:

  • 24/7 access to a registered pharmacist
  • Delivery 7 days a week
  • Specialized medication packaging
  • Medication Administration Records (MARs)
  • Medication Observation Records (MORs)
  • Treatment Records (TARs)
  • Option for Electronic Medication Administration Records (EMARs)
  • Itemized invoices
  • On-site Billing Specialists
  • Educational Support through seminars, online classes, and live in-services
  • Compliance audits: pre-survey evaluation, cart audits, medication pass evaluation
  • Advanced electronic communication systems


Locally managed, Guardian Pharmacy of Jacksonville is also part of the larger Guardian Pharmacy Services family, which has a national support center located in Atlanta, GA. While our support center contributes significantly and strategically to our operational success, the decisions about how to best serve our markets are made locally to ensure quick decision making and flexibility to tailor service to the individual needs of our customers.
