DALLAS, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ascendant Solutions, Inc. (Pink Sheets: ASDS) ("Ascendant" or the "Company") today announced that its Healthcare subsidiary, Dougherty's Holdings, has acquired Family Pharmacy ("Family"), located in Lewisville, Texas and has combined Family's operations with Dougherty's Pharmacy location at Forest Park Medical Center.  Since 2012, Family Pharmacy has provided retail prescriptions to its customers primarily by using state-of-the-art automated compliance packaging not found at most retail pharmacies.

"We are confident that Family Pharmacy's customers will be pleased with the additional products and services that Dougherty's will be able to offer them while continuing to provide the personalized customer service they have been receiving."
