Vyto's Pharmacy opened its doors in 1989 with its first location in Hammond, Indiana, off of 169th Street. For over 25 years the pharmacy has provided the community with quality products and superior services while relieving costs on its patients. In 2007, the pharmacy opened its second location in Highland, Indiana across from the fire station. In 2008, our Hammond store moved to our current Kennedy Avenue address. In 2013 our third location opened in the Hubert Humphrey Building just north of downtown Hammond, and our fourth location, on 45th Street in Highland, opened in 2016. Vyto's continues to serve the communities of Lake County, IN (Hammond, Highland, Munster, Whiting, Dyer, Schererville, Gary, Griffith, Crown Point, Cedar Lake, Lowell, and more) and also of south Cook County, IL (Calumet City, Lansing, Chicago Heights, South Chicago, etc.).

Vyto's Pharmacy is a part of American Associated Pharmacies, which allows us to provide the same great medication at a fraction of the price to our patients. Our compounding department joined Professional Compounding Centers of America to ensure our patients receive the best in compounded medications.
