10 Vesper Lane – Now Open

Hours of Operation: 7 days a week, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

(Beginning Monday, September 27th, the daily hours will change to 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.)


As of August 30th, 2021, all Island Pharmacy prescriptions automatically transferred to Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s new community pharmacy located at 10 Vesper Lane. The Cottage Pharmacy will be open to anyone in the community, not only patients of NCH. 


A message from Allan Bell, owner of Island Pharmacy

“I approached the hospital last year regarding a potential relationship as I begin to step away from Island Pharmacy after 32 years. I have been pursued by numerous chains and other off-island interests over the years, but I chose to reach out to NCH because of its deep roots on Nantucket and understanding of the needs of island patients.”

The occasion marks the beginning of a new chapter for the Nantucket Cottage Hospital as the hospital continues to expand its services provided to the residents and visitors of Nantucket.


Patients that had previously filled prescriptions at Island Pharmacy will now automatically be serviced by the Cottage Pharmacy.
