In 1977, with the tick of a typewriter and the turn of a spatula, Paul Mayer filled his first prescription that began a legacy of patient-centered care that has continued for decades at Paul’s Pharmacy in Evansville, Indiana.
In true family fashion, Paul’s son, Jacob, worked alongside him in his teenage years, learning the ins and outs of pharmacy management and the importance of putting patients first. While his father instilled the value of hard work, Jacob also discovered his passion and deep respect for elderly patients through their inspiring life stories. This passion would eventually guide him back to take his father’s place as the leader of Paul’s Pharmacy. The saying ‘we live to give’ has a literal meaning that is the care philosophy that Jacob holds in all of his business endeavors. He always asks himself before making any decisions, “Is this going to benefit my patients and the community?”
Today, Jacob and his wife, Kari, are proud to bring a new chapter to Paul’s as they open the doors to a pharmacy dedicated to their patrons’ total well-being. You can see Kari’s special touches through all of the details she has taken time to add: a gift wrapping station, products made in the USA, and perhaps the most special is a selection of ‘care’ products that give back a portion of their proceeds to noble causes. Equally, Jacob and his team of expert pharmacy staff will continue to provide state-of-the-art care that has been notable since Paul’s first opening so many years ago. This dynamic duo has brought the very best to their community under one roof by housing some of the best products that provide hope and healing. As they like to say—hope lives here.
