“Remedi has been an excellent pharmacy partner with our four communities in Maryland, so when we had a need in Michigan, they were the first call”
Baltimore, Md. (PRWEB) February 4, 2010
Remedi SeniorCare has expanded its presence in the Michigan and Ohio long-term care marketplace with the addition of two new customers for its comprehensive pharmacy services.
Vista Grande Villa of Jackson, Michigan, and The Laurels in Blanchester, Ohio, have selected Remedi SeniorCare as their long-term care pharmacy of record. Remedi will provide the two facilities with daily deliveries of medications and supplies, cost management and billing support, pharmacist consulting and 24/7 clinical support.
Founded in 1970, Vista Grande Villa is a retirement community providing long-term, skilled nursing care as part of a full continuum of healthcare and lifestyle options for seniors. The 60-bed facility began receiving services from Remedi on Friday, January 15, 2010, and is being serviced by Remedi’s Marshall, Michigan pharmacy.
“Remedi has been an excellent pharmacy partner with our four communities in Maryland, so when we had a need in Michigan, they were the first call,” says Andi Putnam, Business Development Manager with Care Purchasing Services, Inc., the purchasing division for Life Care Services, Inc. “We especially appreciate how Remedi combines great service with real-time technology. We depend heavily on our Web customer portal, My Remedi, to obtain important information from the pharmacy throughout the day.”
“We are thrilled to be supporting Vista Grande Villa, a unique ‘lifecare’ facility for lower Michigan residents,” says Karla Roberts, RPh, Remedi’s Michigan general manager. “With this expanded relationship, Remedi can provide Vista Grande Villa with innovative solutions to support their progressive, compassionate approach to senior care. It is a perfect match.”
The Laurels of Blanchester provides professional care for short- and long-term residents with the highest level of independence, dignity and quality of life. The 50-bed facility started being serviced by Remedi’s Covington, Ohio, pharmacy on Monday, February 1, 2010.
“The Laurels is a staple of its community, and is focused on providing comfort, care and peace of mind to its residents and families,” says Don Groff, RPh, Remedi’s Ohio general manager. “As The Laurels’ long-term care pharmacy partner, we can take much of the labor-intensive administrative and cost management work out of the staff’s hands — and let them focus on caring for their residents. We’re excited about a collaborative partnership.”
