Specialty Pharmacy Launched at Memorial Healthcare

July 28, 2020

Memorial Healthcare Outpatient Pharmacy-Owosso announces the launch of a new Specialty Pharmacy program to further enhance care for its patients with chronic and complex conditions such as cancer, hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis and others.  The Specialty Pharmacy is different than traditional pharmacies.  Our care team is comprised of clinical pharmacists, benefit coordinators, technicians, and patient care coordinators who are available to guide patients through their medication journey to ensure effective, safe, and timely administration of specialty medications and work as your financial advocate.

“The addition of the Specialty Pharmacy Program to our outpatient pharmacy services will further enhance our capability to provide a more comprehensive range of services within the Memorial Healthcare system. Patients being seen at our clinics can have their prescription needs filled at our outpatient pharmacy. Our patients have the choice of picking up their prescription at the pharmacy or having the prescription delivered to their doorstep. Our Specialty Pharmacy recently obtained ACHC accreditation. This accreditation certifies a more in-depth patient care program for our patients currently using high-cost and higher risk medications. We also investigate all possible financial assistance opportunities we can utilize to reduce the cost of those expensive specialty medications,” said Mohamed Gothamy, PharmaD, MBA, Manager, Specialty & Outpatient Pharmacy Services.

As a Memorial Healthcare Specialty Pharmacy patient, our patients will have access to our specialized pharmacy services including:

  • Provide clinical support for specialty medications 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
  • Assist a patient’s healthcare provider in creating a medication plan tailored to the patient’s specific condition.
  • Provide one-on-one counseling with our pharmacy team either in the office, over the phone, or both. In addition, our team will provide the patient with educational materials to ensure an understanding of the medications being taken.
  • Assistance with a patient’s insurance authorization process and enrollment in qualifying financial support programs.
  • Refill reminders based on the patient’s preferences.
  • Free home delivery services and pick-up options that are convenient for the patient and their schedule.

The Specialty Pharmacy is accredited through the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC).  This accreditation assures Memorial Healthcare’s Specialty Pharmacy demonstrates compliance with national standards and is committed to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.

Our team at Memorial Healthcare Outpatient Pharmacy-Owosso is committed to providing patients with the highest quality Specialty Pharmacy services.  If you have questions concerning our Specialty Pharmacy program, please call (989) 729-4781 or visit us at Memorial Healthcare Outpatient Pharmacy, 826 West King Street, Owosso, MI  48867.
