Family Life Pharmacy to reopen as BMH Comfort Pharmacy; BMH to hire all existing staff
Boone Memorial Hospital, Inc. (dba Boone Memorial Health), Coal River Pharmacy, LLC (dba Family Life Pharmacy), and WAS, LLC announced today that they have entered into an asset purchase agreement, under which Boone Memorial Health will acquire substantially all Family Life Pharmacy’s assets and the pharmacy building in Comfort, West Virginia.
Following the closing of the transaction, Family Life Pharmacy will reopen as BMH Comfort Pharmacy, and Boone Memorial Health will hire all current Family Life Pharmacy employees.
Boone Memorial Health (BMH) recently received a gold award from Donate Life West Virginia for its commitment to educate employees and the community about the crucial need for organ, eye, and tissue donation. BMH employees supported Donate Life West Virginia through the West Virginia Hospital Challenge to not only encourage individuals to register as donors but provided them with opportunities to sign up.
Participating hospitals’ awareness and designation activities were captured on a scorecard where points were tracked and recorded. Awareness activities included donor registry enrollment events, education initiatives, flag raising ceremonies, and participation in National Blue and Green Day.

BMH Celebrates WV Donor Day
West Virginia Donor Day is held annually on August 1. BMH has become part of this incredible movement in supporting organ donation by encouraging loved ones—family, friends, neighbors, even coworkers—to sign up as organ donors.
8/1 represents the number of lives that can be saved by one person donating their organs. BMH employees and leadership wore blue and green (national donate life colors) on WV Donor Day and shared goodies, resources, and education about organ donation in order to inspire others and create positive change.
