WOONSOCKET, R.I., June 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — CVS Pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health (NYSE: CVS), today announced that prescription delivery is now available from CVS Pharmacy locations nationwide.

CVS Pharmacy is the first national retailer to offer pharmacy and front store delivery chain-wide.
“The national launch of our prescription delivery service, including the expansion of same-day delivery in five new markets, is delivering on our promise to make staying healthy simpler for every patient, regardless of where they live,” said Kevin Hourican, President, CVS Pharmacy. “Through a fully customized digital experience, shoppers are now able to enjoy the convenience of CVS Pharmacy right at their doorstep. The rollout of delivery from nearly all of our 9,800 retail pharmacy locations nationwide represents another step forward for us in delivering innovative omnichannel solutions that help people on their path to better health.”
