NuCara Pharmacy is located in the heart of historic downtown Monona on W. Center St. between Main and Page Sts., right in the center of town. Just a short distance inland from the Mississippi River, the Garden City of Iowa has so much more to offer to do, see, play, and eat while you're in town getting your prescription filled or gift shopping at NuCara Pharmacy.
The pharmacy store in Monona was started in 1983 by three pharmacists from nearby surrounding communities who saw a need for a pharmacy in town after a doctor and clinic had set up here. They started delivering to the clinic initially, but later opened a small store on Main Street. In 2001, the Burkle family bought the store from the three partners.
In 2019, NuCara Pharmacy bought the store from the Burkles and have been enhancing and growing its products and services ever since. Their loyal and hard-working staff stayed in place to continue to give their customers a seamless transition to NuCara Pharmacy.
NuCara Pharmacy's goal is to deliver the best pharmacy value without sacrificing the quality of care prized by our patients. NuCara owns and manages over 20 full-service community based pharmacies in Iowa, Texas, Illinois, North Dakota, and Minnesota.
At NuCara, we prioritize one-on-one patient counseling and medication management. Check out some of our special Community Pharmacy programs below that allow us to deliver quality health care to patients, from infants to seniors.
Many people choose to live in small towns like Monona, Iowa because they the like close-knit feel of the community and their business, and because they are great places to raise a family. NuCara Pharmacy represents a quintessential small-town store, a place where quality service really means something to its residents.
NuCara Pharmacy has come to rely on the purchasing power of major independent supply groups to help them keep down costs of medications and healthcare services and supplies so its customers -- many of whom our owners and staff call friends -- stay healthy and happy at more competitive and affordable prices.
