City Pharmacy Limited (CPL) Group is pleased to announce the opening of our newest City Pharmacy branch in Kundiawa, Simbu Province.

The new branch was opened under a Public Private Partnership agreement with the Sir Joseph Nombri Memorial Hospital, and now provides quality and affordable healthcare and wellbeing retail services to the province.

City Pharmacy Kundiawa, which also houses our coffee brand Bon Café, officially opened after 8 months of preparation on January 30th 2023 in Kundiawa by CPL Founder, Sir. Mahesh Patel OBE, Simbu Provincial Health Authority CEO Dr. Francis Wandi and member for Kundiawa-Gembogl, Hon. Muguwa Dilu, among an excited crowd and hospital staff.

“Our vision was that if we did anything, that it has to match the standards of one of the country’s top hospitals”, said Sir. Mahesh. “Thank you CEO Wandi, Hospital board members, member Dilu and most importantly the people of Simbu. It’s a pleasure to serve you, and we got to raise and maintain the standards now that City Pharmacy is here in the province”.

Simbu Provincial Health Authority CEO Dr. Wandi said, ‘Thank you to Sir. Mahesh and CPL for taking this business risk to establish a pharmacy here after many years. Our patients now no longer need to go to Mt. Hagen or Goroka for medicine – they can access it right here in Kundiawa.”

“This is a great achievement for our province. Smart decisions by our previous and current hospital boards have enabled partnerships such as this that is a benefit to everyone in our province, and I urge people to look after this service”, MP. Muguwa Dilu further added in his speech.

The opening of City Pharmacy Kundiawa now brings the total number of branches in the Highlands region to six, with four being in Mt. Hagen and one in Goroka. Customers in Kundiawa will also be eligible to sign up and use Real Rewards Plus, our customer loyalty program.

City Pharmacy has over 30 Pharmacies across the country, strengthening the company’s vision to help Papua New Guineans live better and healthier lives.
