SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- H. D.

During Hurricane Sandy and now, in its aftermath, the Kearny, NJ-based New York Metro Division of H. D. Smith Wholesalers continues to go the extra mile to service customers.  "Our foremost priority is ensuring that local pharmacies – the first place so many people turn to, for medical and emergency supplies – can help patients access the medicines and home health products they need," said Dale Smith, president and chief executive officer, H. D. Smith.

The New York Metro division prepared for the storm by enacting their emergency action plan, providing extra deliveries and instructing customers to stock up ahead of the storm in case of supply chain disruptions.  After the storm passed, the division was up and running on a generator and filled and delivered orders to hospitals, clinics, nursing homes and Independent Pharmacy Retailers.  

"Thanks to proactive planning and preparedness, along with dedicated employees – many of whom were themselves affected by the storm – we were able to continue to supply vital pharmaceuticals, Home Health Care, Durable Medical Equipment, Over the Counter Medications, and Consumer Goods to our many customers in the Tri- State area and beyond," said Christian Herrington, corporate vice president of operations, H. D. Smith. "The fact that our New York Metro Division efforts could help support the best possible health and medical care for thousands affected by Hurricane Sandy is what H. D. Smith is all about – supporting our customers and the well-being of the communities they serve."

The H. D. Smith New York Metro division is also preparing for the Nor'easter anticipated to impact the northeastern United States this week, by following the same emergency preparedness protocol and helping local pharmacies and institutions stock up ahead of time so they can care for their customers and patients.
