Guardian Pharmacy Services, one of the nation’s largest long-term care (LTC) pharmacy companies, recently relocated its headquarters to The Galleria in Cobb County, nine miles north of its former home in midtown Atlanta. The move supports Guardian’s rapid growth and commitment to a best-in-class workplace experience.  

The company will occupy the entire eighth floor of Galleria 300, a 20-story, class-A office building located at 300 Galleria Pkwy SE, part of the larger 20-acre Galleria on the Park project.

The 25,282 square-foot office space includes a spacious 42-person training room, multiple meeting rooms and open workspaces that foster collaboration among employees. The new layout and amenities enable Guardian Pharmacy Services' corporate support team to effectively assist its 43 nationwide pharmacies with complex business functions, allowing staff from each pharmacy location to focus entirely on meeting the specialized needs of the communities, residents and individuals they serve. 

“Over the past five years, Guardian has increased our number of pharmacies by more than 38%. This modern, spacious headquarters will help our corporate team better support the needs of our local pharmacies in the field,” said Fred Burke, CEO and cofounder of Guardian Pharmacy Services. “Our office and the surrounding area provide the perfect backdrop for our employees to connect with colleagues, collaborate in person and enjoy a wide range of amenities, including onsite childcare and a full-service health club, as well as restaurants and entertainment options nearby. We are thrilled to call this new location home and look forward to the positive impact it will have on our team's productivity, well-being and our ability to make a difference in the communities we serve.”  

Galleria on the Park, owned and managed by Piedmont Office Realty Trust, is a mixed-use environment focused on providing tenants with a new nature of work, including on-site restaurants, outdoor workspaces and hospitality-infused spaces. Next door to The Battery Atlanta and Truist Park, with effortless connectivity to I-75 and I-285 and Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Galleria offers Guardian employees a centralized place to work and play, making it an ideal choice for team-building activities and business meetings.

“We are excited to welcome Guardian Pharmacy Services to Galleria 300,” said Alex Valente, Piedmont’s executive vice president – Southeast Region. “We believe Galleria on the Park offers tenants like Guardian an unmatched hospitality-driven, uniquely amenitized experience which resonates with employees and decision makers alike.”
