Our Team

Thomas McDowell, PharmD


Thomas McDowell is a 4th generation Community Pharmacist and owner of McDowell’s Pharmacy in Scotland Neck, NC and Rocky Mount Medical Park Pharmacy in Rocky Mount, NC.  McDowell’s Pharmacy has been owned and operated by the McDowell family for over 100 years. Thomas purchased Rocky Mount Medical Park Pharmacy in 2021 to bring his passion for empathetic patient care and personalized service to the Nash County area.  

Over the years, Thomas has seen an increased need for in-home care, especially for his pharmacy patients, which is why he has branched into the home care service industry.  Their patients trust them for the highest level of customer care and Thomas will continue to provide this superior service in the home care setting.

So many families today do not know where to turn when it comes to senior care.  There are many incredible facilities in the community but often the loved one desires to stay in their home.  Loved ones may need help with medication management, doctor’s appointments,  taking care of their homes, or daily chores.  Thomas has seen this need and is committed to helping families and their loved ones maintain their independence for as long as possible. 

Happier at Home – Eastern North Carolina will allow them to provide in-home care for seniors and the disabled, as well as comprehensive geriatric care management.

Thomas currently volunteers with numerous groups including CPESN-NC, Area L AHEC, the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy Eastern Advisory Committee, and Scotland Neck Rising, a non-profit dedicated to economic revitalization and historic preservation.  He is happily married to his wife, Blaine, and has two beautiful children, Press and Mary Hayes.
