About Us

Although Essentra Pharmacy is new to Marengo, Ohio, our roots already run deep. Essentra Pharmacy was established in 2016 by our parent pharmacy, Uptown Pharmacy. Having served Westerville, Ohio for over 100 years, Uptown Pharmacy has provided care and has touched the lives of many patients. Now Essentra Pharmacy is looking to do the same in Morrow County.

Max J. Peoples, Jr. acquired Uptown Pharmacy in March 1985 and has continued to grow the pharmacy to become a staple within the Westerville community while providing the most advanced pharmacy care and services. In 2015, Max was approached with the opportunity to provide care to a community that was without a pharmacy. After multiple discussions with Mr. Jack Fishburn, Essentra Pharmacy was allowed to move into The Cardinal Center building at Morrow County Hospital. Mr. Fishburn was very kind to let us move into the community room that was previously dedicated to his late wife, Mrs. Karen Fishburn. Mrs. Fishburn's desire was to have The Cardinal Center provide outstanding quality healthcare to the community that she loved. Therefore, Mr. Fishburn thought it was appropriate to have Essentra Pharmacy utilized her room to allow additional care to the community.

Essentra Pharmacy is grateful to everyone who helped put together this beautiful pharmacy. From Enoch and Paul Hinkle's construction crew all the way to Richard Wehee at Central Ohio Security, we were blessed to work with some great people. All of the hard work was put in to provide the community with a warm, comfortable facility to meet all of your pharmacy needs.

At Essentra Pharmacy you are not a prescription number, you are our patient! We prefer to be on a first name basis, and we will strive to provide you with the healthcare services that meet your specific needs. You can expect to receive the hometown pharmacy feeling while still receiving the most advanced products, services, and information. We also understand that time is precious, so we work efficiently to get your prescriptions ready in a quick, but safe, manner. Stop in and see us, we would love to become a part of your healthcare team!
