Vanderhoof Medicine Centre – now open in Vanderhoof, BC

Vanderhoof Medicine Centre pharmacist George Pettie is excited to offer pharmacy services to Vanderhoof, BC.  Located at 2436 Church Street, Vanderhoof Medicine Centre offers a different approach to pharmacy services, focusing on health and education in addition to the provision of medications.

Focus on Patient Education

Patient education can be as simple as an informal conversation to help a patient better understand their prescriptions or as comprehensive as a full medication review.

Building on the success of the Fraser Lake Medicine Centre, the Vanderhoof Medicine Centre location is designed to create a warm environment.  Staff are trained and ready to provide patients with products and information that will lead to better health.


Alana Nikolitsas, nee (Kulchar) is pleased to return to her hometown of Vanderhoof, BC. The middle of five children, Alana grew up on a beef farm west of Vanderhoof. Alana graduated from Nechako Valley Secondary School in Vanderhoof and attended the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George to obtain her prerequisites for pharmacy school. In September 2013 she attended the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and graduated from the program in June 2017.


During her years as a student she was excited to return to the area for her practicums, working in Prince George and Fraser Lake where she met George Pettie. As a student in Fraser Lake, Alana saw just how a pharmacist can be utilized in a small community and their importance for patient care. Alana and her husband are delighted to settle down and raise their family here and give back to the community of Vanderhoof.
