Damian-Anthony J. Canuto, Director of North Country Pharmacy
Damian comes to Littleton Regional Healthcare with more than 15 years in local retail pharmacies, most recently at Ammonoosuc Community Health Services. He attended the University of Rhode Island receiving his PharmD. degree.
Damian looks forward to serving patients at LRH and community members at North Country Pharmacy. In addition to a traditional retail pharmacy, North Country Pharmacy will start a "meds to beds" program that will allow patients at LRH to have their prescription medication delivered to their bedside. Additionally, patients will have the opportunity to connect with Damian to ask about their medications before they are sent home. Damian states, "I look forward working with many new and previous patients to provide access and to help them utilize and understand their medications better."
We are pleased to open the North Country Pharmacy and to have Damian at the helm managing the operations. Our goal with the "meds to beds" program is to aid in a patient's transition home after a hospital visit, thus preventing re-admissions and improving quality of care. More importantly, this program provides the opportunity for the patient to learn more about their medications in a private setting. Damian's background in retail pharmacy makes him a perfect leader for this position,” stated Robert Nutter, President at LRH.
