West Concord Pharmacy Honors Employees for Outstanding Service
West Concord Pharmacy recently honored employees for their long term service and dedication. Staff members who have served between 10 and 30 years were recognized for their commitment.
“We’re extremely proud of our employees and would like to honor their commitment to the pharmacies and the many individuals we serve,” said Saad and Raied Dinno, brothers, and co-owners of West Concord Pharmacy. “We thank them for their exemplary service.”
Diane Briner, a pharmacist and pharmacy manager of the West Concord Pharmacy is being honored for 30 years of service. West Concord Pharmacy also honored other employees, including Katie McWilliams of Concord, a certified pharmacy technician, Jenny Jones, a certified pharmacy technician and Maynard resident, and Ellen Davis, a customer service representative and Hudson resident. McWilliams, Jones and Davis are being honored for 15 years of service.
An Arlington resident, Briner began her career as a pharmacist at West Concord Pharmacy in 1982, and has compassionately cared for generations of families over the years. Briner feels strongly connected to her customers and is grateful for the opportunity to have personal interactions, which help her to clinically assess each individual as a whole person, and ensure that their medication is best suited to their needs.
Briner often fulfills multiple roles, including counseling patients on prescriptions and health issues and coordinating care between healthcare providers to make sure prescriptions are authorized and expedited.
Briner attributes her longevity to her wonderful customers, co-workers, and the Dinno family for continuing the pharmacy’s philosophy of care and concern for each customer.
“I love knowing my patients,” said Briner. “As a pharmacist at an independent pharmacy, my interactions with patients have a direct impact on their health and wellness, and it’s an honor to be an important part of their health care team.”
