WHAT: PharmaCentra will host a ribbon cutting and open house at its new operations center in Americus, Georgia.

The new facility will accommodate the tremendous growth of WellTouch™, PharmaCentra's signature patient compliance and persistency program. WellTouch™ Healthcare Specialists encourage patients to immediately fill their first prescription, remind patients about refills, schedule physician appointments and provide medical resources.
