Effective Sept. 30, 2019, CMH will acquire Stephens Pharmacy and will merge its retail pharmacy, Butterfield Pharmacy and CMH Senior Pharmacy with Stephens Pharmacy, located at 1100 S. Springfield Ave. CMH will retain the Stephens Pharmacy name.

In anticipation of the move, Butterfield Pharmacy will close permanently Friday, Sept. 27, at 2 p.m. Medications previously filled at Butterfield Pharmacy will be filled at Stephens Pharmacy beginning Sept. 30 at 8:30 a.m.

“I’ve worked with Mike Stephens for more than 38 years,” says Donald J. Babb, CEO/Executive Director of CMH and CMH Foundation. “He’s been a great partner with CMH. This merger is such a good match for us as we move forward to expand our pharmacy services.”

Patients should anticipate a seamless transition and a continuation of services at Stephens Pharmacy.

“Our goal is to continue the same level of services as Stephens Pharmacy patients have experienced in the past,” Babb says.

Stephens Pharmacy opened in January 1975. It was owned and operated by lifelong Bolivar resident Michael J. Stephens, R.Ph.

“I want to express my deepest and most sincere appreciation to the community. I am so grateful that I’ve been allowed to serve them all these years and to all the generations of customers,” Stephens says. “From my heart I want to thank all my customers who have stayed with Stephens Pharmacy all these years.”

Stephens will continue working as a pharmacist at Stephens Pharmacy in addition to his responsibilities with the Missouri House of Representatives. Stephens was elected to office in November 2016 and represents District 128.

“I have worked with CMH for a long time,” Stephens shares. Stephens was among the community members who advocated establishing a hospital in Bolivar in the late 1970s. “I am pleased to continue that relationship.”
