St. Louis based NOVUS Health signed an agreement with GreaterHealth Pharmacy & Wellness to provide pharmaceutical services at NOVUS’ new location at 6155 South Grand in 2024. GreaterHealth Pharmacy & Wellness is the first radically inclusive, culturally responsive pharmacy in the U.S. and the only Black-owned pharmacy to franchise its model in U.S. history.

GreaterHealth Pharmacy & Wellness Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Marcus Howard, Ph.D. believes “All people, regardless of the difference, should have access to a quality healthcare experience”. His pharmacy startup is currently reimagining the role of pharmacy in local and diverse communities and its flagship store is located inside the new Delmar DivINe, a social innovation hub and brainchild of Build-a-Bear founder Maxine Clark.

This new partnership will ensure that those they both serve from the BIPOC and the LGBTQIA+ population, and those with chronic conditions such as HIV, Hypertension, Diabetes, and other chronic conditions; will have access to inclusive primary care, behavioral health, and pharmacy services year-round. Both organizations believe that regardless of difference, all people should experience greater health and a greater quality of life.

Dale Wrigley, Chief Executive Officer for NOVUS Health, had this to say about the partnership, “NOVUS Health is excited to work with GreaterHealth Pharmacy & Wellness to change the trajectory of healthcare as we know it. Making healthcare accessible to all!”

“This is the latest step healthcare agencies have taken to bring equitable access to all St. Louis residents,” says Dr. Mati Hlashwayo Davis, Director of Health for the City of St. Louis, “It’s wonderful to see partners working together to support our community, and I applaud Mr. Wrigley and especially Dr. Howard for this visionary leadership,” says Dr. Hlastwayo Davis.
