Chartwell Pennsylvania, LP Partners with UPMC Susquehanna’s Health Services Pharmacy;
Eastern expansion signals continued growth


February 5, 2018

(PITTSBURGH, PA) — Chartwell Pennsylvania, LP is pleased to announce its most recent partnership with the UPMC Susquehanna’s home infusion pharmacy, Health Services Pharmacy. February 1, 2018 marks the official date for the two organizations to work together in providing home infusion and enteral nutrition services to patients in the north central Pennsylvania area.

 

Chartwell President, Kathleen Patrick, commended both pharmacies’ efforts to continually focus on patient care during the transition.

“Working with the staff at UPMC Susquehanna and their infusion pharmacy staff over the past several months has been a wonderful experience,” said Patrick. “We realized very early on that the two organizations shared the same core values. When your first priority is centered around the patients, everything else falls into place pretty quickly.”

Chartwell follows suit with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) 2016 acquisition of five-hospital system Susquehanna Health, also based in Lycoming County. The Health System, now
UPMC Susquehanna, has committed to invest $500 million in emergency, cancer and vascular services, and plans of a neurosciences center of excellence is also forthcoming.

Chartwell is a limited partnership between UPMC, Butler Health System, Heritage Valley Health System and Washington Health System with three branch locations in Pittsburgh, Erie and Altoona. For more than 25 years, Chartwell has provided many of the latest, most advanced therapies and medications to patients for the treatment of chronic, rare and/or complex conditions. The pharmacy provides services, therapies and medications for both home infusion and specialty pharmacy patients throughout the region.

Health Services Pharmacy, located at 1201 Grampian Boulevard in Williamsport, currently provides infusion and hospice-related services and therapies to patients in the region.

David Adair, Chartwell Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Planning, is eager to expand Chartwell services, both geographically and clinically.

“We’re excited about working with the hospitals and physicians in that region,” said Adair. “Chartwell has developed many great clinical programs over the past 26 years that have been well-received, and it’s a priority at Chartwell to continually build upon our services to make sure our patients receive the care they deserve.”
