On December 1, 2014, Patient Care Pharmacy joined the Guardian Pharmacy family and is now operating as Guardian Pharmacy of Southwest Florida. Our goal is simple: we strive to earn your business every day by providing exceptional customized service to meet the needs of our partner communities so that they can focus on the comfort, safety and quality of life of their residents. With more than 30 years of combined long-term care experience, our management team is passionate about the industry and driven to accomplish this goal.

As presidents empowered with local autonomy decision making, our success is uniquely tied to the satisfaction of our customers. Equally enthusiastic, our pharmacists, certified pharmacy technicians, billing specialists, medical record specialists, nurse account managers, and licensed consultant pharmacists have proven expertise and are all dedicated individuals who care.


Guardian Pharmacy of Southwest Florida currently serves customers throughout Sarasota, FL to Fort Myers, FL. 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 Southwest Florida is also part of the larger Guardian Pharmacy 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.
