Wilkinson Pharmacy, Inc. has been offering health care solutions for over 40 years in Nevada, Mo. The Nevada location is just one of seven retail pharmacies, one specialty pharmacy and a durable medical equipment division.

“We offer our communities the unique combination of pharmacy services, respiratory therapy, medical equipment specialty items and general drug store items located in a convenient one stop location,” said, Mike Beisner, President of Wilkinson Pharmacy.* The pharmacy was purchased by Mike’s family in 1972.

“As my father was the original owner, I grew up working the pharmacies,” Beisner said. Mike held many jobs at the pharmacy before he became the President. He worked as a soda jerk, stockperson, delivery driver, clerk and other various jobs after school, on weekends and during summer breaks.

According to Mike, the pharmacy and medical industry is one of constant change and hyper competitive. The associates who work at the pharmacy prove to be their biggest asset.

“I would like to thank our entire family of associates for their tireless efforts in bringing the highest quality of professional products and services to our communities,” Beisner said.

“We chose Arvest because of their overall commitment of bringing quality financial products and services,” he said. “[This] helps [us] achieve our goals and objectives.”

To businesses just starting out, his words of wisdom are simple.

“To be successful at anything you must first have a passion for it,” he said. “My favorite part of my job is when I receive a note, phone call or even a personal conversation with a customer telling me about one of our associates [that] took special care in providing a solution to their needs. That is the ultimate measure of our success!”
