About Us

We’ve been in the pharmacy business since the 1960s, starting out in Phoenix, AZ. In the 1980s when the Medicare benefit for hospice took effect, we became a pioneer in providing pharmacy services to the growing hospice industry. We have since served as a comprehensive pharmacy services partner, building our reputation as the nation’s premier hospice PBM and pharmacy.

Today we pride ourselves on being the most adaptable and flexible hospice pharmacy partner in our industry. Our original commitment to providing superior service, consistent value and unsurpassed quality of care has remained steadfast. Just ask our customers.
