Express Scripts’ Accredo specialty pharmacy expands in Hawaii
Express Scripts today announced that its specialty pharmacy, Accredo, will open a new location in Honolulu to provide high-touch pharmacy care to people living with chronic, complex health conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, cancer and hemophilia. With this new location, Accredo’s pharmacies will total 28 across the United States.
The new pharmacy, slated to open this summer, will offer a range of services, including walk-in consultations with a pharmacist, home delivery via courier and mail, and an or ambulatory infusion center with onsite nurses. Oncology treatments and intravenous immunoglobulin will be among the therapies administered onsite.
AlohaCare, a Hawaii-based, non-profit health plan, has selected Accredo as its preferred specialty pharmacy to serve its members living on Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and Hawaii Island.
“With its mission to care for people who are underserved with specific health needs, AlohaCare is a leader in putting patients first,” Accredo president Brian Seiz said, adding, “Accredo’s unique model of care aligns with this mission as we work to ensure those with the most complex health conditions are receiving high-touch, patient-centric care.”
Corey Fujii, Accredo senior director and general manager, and a lifelong resident of Hawaii, will lead the pharmacy operation, and currently is overseeing development of the pharmacy space. Once operational, the pharmacy will be available to serve all residents of Hawaii whose pharmacy benefit includes Accredo.
“As AlohaCare’s preferred specialty pharmacy, Accredo will offer our members and providers across the state greater access to specialty pharmacy services and clinicians,” AlohaCare CEO Laura Esslinger said. “Together, AlohaCare and Accredo are committed to improving access to quality care for Hawaii, and increasing opportunities for in-home care and delivery statewide.”
