FORT MYERS, Fla. – Dec. 10, 2018 – Integrated cancer care leader, 21st Century Oncology has opened their pharmacy to offer a new line of services that improves convenience for patients undergoing treatment by allowing them to receive care, as well as their oral oncolytic prescriptions all under one roof.
21st Century Oncology patients can now receive oral medications, intravenous treatments, care, and counseling all from one skilled team. The pharmacy will confirm prescription coverage so patients are ensured the medicine they need quickly and cost-effectively. Comprehensive treatment support counseling aids patients with side-effect management and provides educational resources to assure optimal treatment outcome. Now, patients have access to healthcare professionals they know and trust.
“At times in the past, we have had significant delays for our patients with receiving oncology related medications, as we had to use outside pharmacies. Now that this option is available within 21C we can avoid the unnecessary stress on our patients that those delays have caused. I am excited about this expansion within 21C as this allows our physicians to get the needed oncology related medications to our patients in a more efficient and timely manner,” said Dr. Samarth Reddy, Medical Oncologist.
The pharmacy only dispenses prescriptions from 21st Century Oncology physicians and is currently only offering these integrated services in the state of Florida.
“Our goal is to optimize medication treatment plans in collaboration with our team of physicians to achieve the best possible results for patients,” said Michael Larrea, PharmD, Director of Pharmacy Operations at 21C Pharmacy.
