Troubled KC pharmacy reopens

Wednesday, November 28, 2001

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The pharmacy where a Kansas City druggist is accused of diluting chemotherapy drugs has reopened for business -- under new ownership.

Robert R. Courtney ran Research Medical Tower Pharmacy when he was indicted on federal charges that he diluted mixtures of chemotherapy drugs so he could save money. A federal judge ordered last August that Courtney's two pharmacies be closed or sold.

The pharmacy opened Monday as Stark's Pharmacy, one of four in the Kansas City-area.
