About North Haven Pharmacy

Family owned and operated since 1964, North Haven Pharmacy is about preserving our past while looking into our future as a successful, independent pharmacy that continues to provide exceptional care for our patients and the community. Our staff is a well rounded group of Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians who are happy to offer quality service in a neighborly atmosphere.

Gerard Acampora, RPh

Gerard graduated from the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy in 1978. He joined his father, Pasquale, in the family business. Gerard, along with his brother, Lawrence Acampora, purchased the Pharmacy in 1986. Lawrence has since retired while Gerard continues to serve the community as the Pharmacist/owner of North Haven Pharmacy.

As owner and lead pharmacist at the family-owned, independent North Haven Pharmacy, Gerard Acampora learned how to support his community from his father.

“Many, many times on his way home from work he would deliver medicine to a family, or if someone couldn’t afford a medication, he said, ‘No worries, take your medicine. Pay me when you can.’ I saw that in my father, and it’s continued with me,” Gerard says.

That sense of compassion is one of the most critical responsibilities for a pharmacist such as Gerard to have, along with being a resourceful, friendly listener who can help navigate individuals through what can be the dizzying and intimidating world of prescription drugs.
