How it all began

Chocky White graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill in 1969. White moved to Henderson and opened Medical Arts Pharmacy in 1971 in a 600 sq. ft. space in the Vance Medical Arts Building.  He was the only pharmacist and only employee for several years.

Growing from 1 employee to over 25 …with SERVICE

Over the course of 48 years, White has added employees and increased the size of the operation to meet the demands of a growing customer base.  We have always relied on our own customers to tell their friends and family about our service. We take a different approach than the big box stores– Medical Arts Pharmacy has grown to a team of approximately 30 professionals that are committed to delivering a great pharmacy experience. 

The Future of Medical Arts Pharmacy

White now employs his three children, Cara Kirby, Craig White, and Brent White, to help manage and sustain the business. Cara states, ” When most people his age are considering retirement, our dad is focusing on taking care of customers and the growth of the business. He has built the business by being fair, honest, and really caring about the customers and employees. That is a solid way to move into the next 45 years.”

Investing in our Community

In 2016, Medical Arts Pharmacy moved the operation to its new location at 253 Ruin Creek Road to better serve customers. The extra space has allowed Medical Arts to offer more services and a drive thru for the convenience of our customers. Medical Arts enjoys supporting many philanthropic causes — local schools, Vance County Special Olympics, Relay for Life, Future Farmers of America, McGregor Hall Performing Arts Center, among others.
