Chem Rx recently acquired Salerno's Pharmacy. This move represents the beginning of Chem Rx's national expansion and growth plan to increase its service area in the long-term care market, according to a company announcement.

Chem Rx plans to make more acquisitions to include about 85,000 beds by the end of 2007, said COO Steve Silva.
