OUR HISTORY
Our roots go back 40 years

Our roots in long-term care services go back over 40 years. NuCara is a locally-owned and operated healthcare-based company that has expanded it services to include pharmacy, home medical equipment and home-health care. We strive to meet the needs of our patients which is why we continue to add to our always growing list of services.

Our company now manages over 30 full-service pharmacies in Iowa, Texas, Illinois, North Dakota, and Minnesota. In addition, we operate 10 home medical equipment retail sites plus a home-healthcare franchise location in Northeast Iowa. These locations, plus our emphasis in compounding and infusion services, make us a reliable partner when it comes to the care of individuals, both young and old.

Through it all, NuCara works with us for what is best for NewAldaya. We are very appreciative of NuCara’s willingness to personalize services to meet our needs. Throughout the pandemic, NuCara has been very supportive of NewAldaya’s vaccination efforts, making the process as efficient as possible.

Change can be difficult, even when our world isn’t in the middle of a pandemic.

NuCara LTC Pharmacy made the transition of pharmacy services here at Westbrook Acres very smooth. Even though in person visits couldn’t happen due to Covid-19 the pharmacy staff kept in great communication with myself and the staff here at Westbrook Acres to make sure all of our questions were answered and that the transition to NuCara LTC Pharmacy was a positive change. The staff at NuCara continue to follow up on us here at Westbrook and are always available to help.
