Milwaukee-based pharmacy chain Hayat Pharmacy will open its sixth location Tuesday at its first site in southern Milwaukee County: 4931 S. 27th St. in Greenfield.
The new pharmacy will be located within the clinic of independent physicians Dr. Hector Lopez and Dr. Mauricio Tovar, said Hashim Zaibak, majority owner of Hayat Pharmacy. Also at the same address is a Dynacare laboratory.
“We’ve been having a lot of requests from people in that area to open closer to them,” Zaibak said of the Greenfield location.
Hayat plans to open a second pharmacy in southern Milwaukee County in 2015 in the Oak Creek area that also likely will be located in an existing clinic, Zaibak said.
Also in Zaibak's sights for 2015 is opening a pharmacy in downtown Milwaukee to serve people who work downtown. That location also might be in an existing clinic, he said.
Four of Hayat’s six locations are in existing clinics on Milwaukee’s west side and northwest side. Hayat, which Zaibak founded in 2011, runs two freestanding clinics and retail stores: 1919 W. North Ave. on the north side and 5928 W. Vliet St. in Milwaukee’s Washington Heights neighborhood.
Hayat Pharmacy is affiliated with Health Mart, a national chain of independent pharmacies and a wholly-owned subsidiary of McKesson Corp., New York City.
