Our History

Arete Pharmacy Network was formed in March 2016 when Independent pharmacy group American Associated Pharmacies (AAP) and drug wholesaler H. D. Smith combined respective pharmacy services administrative organizations (PSAO) into a stand-alone entity.


Arete Pharmacy Network succeeds H. D. Smith’s Third Party Network and AAP’s United Drugs, serving more than 2,500 independent retail pharmacies across the United States.
