Brookhaven, PA, April 18, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- BurmansRx, a family-owned and operated independent healthcare provider offering retail pharmacy, specialty pharmacy, prescription compounding services, and medical supplies with award-winning service to patients in the Mid-Atlantic region, has been selected as an honoree for the 2015 Philadelphia SmartCEO Family Business Awards – a recognition that coincides with the company’s 50th anniversary year.

The Family Business Awards program honors family businesses that are growing and successful and that make up the backbone of the American economy – and for 50 years, patients and physicians have relied on the dedicated and knowledgeable BurmansRx team to assist them with every step of their healthcare needs.

“We are honored to be recognized as a key player in the vitality of our economy and to the well-being of our patients and greater community,” said Steve Burman, President and CEO of BurmansRx. “The nature of our family-owned and operated business is what allows us to put the needs of our patients first – as we have since my father first opened the pharmacy in Chester in 1965.”

More than two thirds of privately held businesses in the U.S. are family-owned firms and are often overshadowed by large public organizations. To contest this challenge and highlight their positive impact on the local and national economy and on job growth, SmartCEO will profile BurmansRx and other honorees in the May/June issue of the Philadelphia SmartCEO magazine and at the Family Business Awards Ceremony event on May 6, 2015 at the Ballroom at the Ben in Philadelphia, PA.

As part of the BurmansRx family of companies, Burmans Pharmacy and BurmansRx Specialty are independent community pharmacies operated by a team of pharmacists with 300 years of collective experience. They thoroughly address patients’ needs and offer services and resources such as compounding, face-to-face consultations, insurance coordination, and clinical specialty pharmacy programs. Burmans Medical Supplies is a provider of home medical supplies, specializing in wound care and urology with a personal, dependable approach. Their qualified and patient-centered staff includes pharmacists, nurses, customer service representatives, product specialists, delivery fleet, and insurance benefit experts.

“This recognition represents our credo – “You’re a Neighbor. Not a Number.” – and to be honored with this accolade during our 50th anniversary year is significant and moving,” said Steve Burman. “Our purpose is to enhance the quality of life and economic well-being of all those we serve, and we are proud to have impacted our communities with our trusted care and service.”
