Embracing the Opportunity to Innovate and Grow

Hugh Toner

“Mental health is the new frontier for our patients and I want to help them with that burden. I know the struggle. It can be overwhelming to take medication when you can’t even seem to get out of bed. That’s why we created Daily Dose To You: to take medication to our patients in their homes. To see them, to care for them and to help provide a community for them.”


Hugh's Story #BeIndependent

Hugh has had a long journey as a pharmacist in Atlantic Canada. With 30 years of experience, he has taken care of many patients, in a variety of pharmacy settings.

One day, Hugh realized he needed to take care of himself and refocus on his family.

To achieve this goal, Hugh needed to become an independent pharmacist.

Being an independent pharmacist has given Hugh the flexibility he was looking for, and the time he needed to make things right, both for his family and his patients.

In 2007, with the support of McKesson Canada, Hugh was able to start a new life and purchase his own pharmacy: one that became a family business. Hugh’s son, Brandon, recently joined his team as a pharmacist.
