In 1984, William S. McFarland, III founded Loop Plaza Discount Pharmacy in St. Albans, WV. The pharmacy’s business quickly flourished, and in only 10 years, it was moved to a larger location. Premier Medical, which was established in 1989, was a home medical equipment company located next door to the pharmacy’s new location. As a result of its excellence in patient care and performance, Premier Medical became JCAHO accredited in 1998.
After recognizing great expertise in each other, the two companies merged to form Loop Pharmacy and Home Medical in March of 2003. Business continued to prosper, and in 2006, a second location was opened in Kanawha City as a compounding-only store. In 2009, the company again expanded, opening a new operation in Fairmont, WV.
