A Jamestown business which started with just four employees four years ago has expanded to 20 workers and a new location.
Patient's Pharmacy Inc. was started in April 2008 and is independently owned by Donald Nash Jr., president, along with Diane Mathews, vice president.
The company is a provider in prescription medications and health care supplies for long-term care, assisted living, group homes and skilled nursing facilities. Nash and Mathews, along with guests like state Sen. Catharine Young, R-C-I-Olean, and Mayor Sam Teresi, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday to celebrate the opening of the new location, 320 N. Main St., Jamestown.

''This is a great location and everything has worked out wonderfully,'' said Melinda Centi, medical building associate.
Centi said while the business was preparing to open, plenty of people would ask about what new business was going to be located in the former Bro Laines Bridal.
''People were just coming in and asking about what was going to be here. People are very excited about the new location,'' she said.
There was a reception held for the official opening of the business, with demonstrations on various medical supplies by a DRIVE Medical representative. Customers entered to win grand prizes, including a 32-inch Toshiba LCD TV or a Rebel wheelchair, donated by DRIVE Medical.
Patient's Pharmacy will fill prescription medications and accepts most insurance plans. Patient's Pharmacy also has a furnished showroom of durable medical equipment supplies.
The business will also include Whisper's Boutique, a shop for breast cancer survivors.
Whisper's Boutique will specialize in various mastectomy clothing, including post-surgical camisoles and breast form comfort needs. It will carry a full line of compression sleeves, scarves, comfort pillows and American Breast Care undergarments.
The pharmacy is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. For more information, visit www.ptsrx.com.
