Southeastern Grocers Offers Specialty Pharmacy Services
Southeastern Grocers LLC, (SEG) parent company of Bi-Lo, Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, has rolled out specialty pharmacy Pathstone Health Services at all of the company’s stores. Pathstone provides customers with customized, convenient care for complicated, often chronic medical conditions, among them cancer, hepatitis, multiple sclerosis and Crohn’s disease.
Pathstone services include free prescription delivery to a patient’s home or preferred SEG pharmacy, as well as prescription refill services. The specialty pharmacy also extends financial assistance to lower out-of-pocket expenses for patients. Specially trained pharmacists offer personalized check-ins, reminders, and expert advice on medication side effects and possible drug interactions.
“Our customers’ health and well-being always come first,” noted Gayle Shields, VP of pharmacy and operations for Jacksonville, Fla.-based SEG. “We have listened to our customers and know there are medical conditions that require a specialty pharmacy in the communities that we serve. We want our customers to know they can count on us to deliver customized specialty pharmacy care, including medications, clinical programs, financial assistance and adherence monitoring, all with convenient delivery options. It’s all about putting people first.”
