Texas-based Maxor National Pharmacy Services LLC recently unveiled two on-site pharmacy shops for Unity Health Care's Parkside and Upper Cardozo Health Centers, both with physical locations serving the community in Washington, D.C.
Patients at both venues will receive individualized customer service and gain the ability to fill their prescriptions at once with the system’ “one-stop” upgrade. The pharmacies will operate home delivery services as well for maintenance medications.
"Pharmacy is an essential component of total patient care,” Ben Kelly, Maxor’s vice president of operations, said. “Unity Health Care's vision to incorporate on-site pharmacy services within their larger health care delivery system will mean better and more accessible care for the D.C. community they serve."
Maxor provides a range of services including pharmacy management, consulting and pharmacy benefit management; specialty, respiratory and home infusion; and pharmacy technology systems. The company has a 90-year history of managing pharmacies as well as 16 years of experience with the 340B Drug Discount Program, a U.S. federal government program since 1992 mandating that drug manufacturers provide outpatient drugs to eligible health care organizations and other qualifying entities at reduced prices.
“Unity serves one in six District [of Columbia] residents each year,” Unity Health Care President and CEO Vincent Keane said. “We’re proud to be the largest network of community health centers in the nation’s capital.”
