A recent report finds that The Healing Center (THC) is the Pittsburgh area’s second largest dispensary ranked by local employment. The company features an extensive selection of plant-based medical choices grown exclusively for its patients. The Healing Center strives to help all patients find the most effective medical cannabis treatment to increase their overall quality of life. Each dispensary has a pharmacist on staff and prides itself on the price selection of medicine available to patients.
The Healing Center has a focus on compliance and utilizes a company-wide training program and training manager. The company also focuses on sourcing local talent and hires an average of 20 employees per dispensary.
The Healing Center reports that it has dispensed medical cannabis safely and securely to over 20,000 patients with a 92% patient retention rate.
The company currently has three locations in the Pittsburgh area — 270 Executive Drive, Cranberry Township; 130 Mall Circle Drive, Monroeville; and 799 West Chestnut Street, Washington. The Healing Center currently has applications pending for five locations in West Virginia. The West Virginia Office of Medical Cannabis is in the process of evaluating dispensary applications and expects to announce successful applicants later this year.
