Our History

Founded in 1991 as one of several infusion pharmacies partnered with large teaching institutions across the country, Chartwell Pennsylvania quickly garnered a reputation as the go-to pharmacy in the Pittsburgh region for patients making the transition from the hospital to the home setting. Chartwell’s innovative clinicians played a key role – alongside some of the leading minds in medicine – in establishing safety protocols and patient education techniques that would ensure successful outcomes for our patients. At the time, every new therapy introduced to the home setting – antibiotics, TPN, enteral feedings, etc. – was another groundbreaking achievement for both Chartwell and our clinical partners in local hospitals, especially with the transplant population.

Chartwell now operates three infusion pharmacies throughout the western half of Pennsylvania. Our Erie and Altoona pharmacies allow us to service more than half of the state, in addition to the bordering counties in Ohio, New York and West Virginia.

In 2010, Chartwell Specialty Pharmacy was launched and has since set the standard for levels of care in the industry. Customers in all segments of the specialty industry – including Oncology, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Neurology and Orthopedics – recognize Chartwell pharmacy and insurance staff as the best in the area for patient satisfaction. We advocate for patients both financially and clinically, locating co-pay assistance programs and assuring safe and effective therapies.

Chartwell’s oncology program was developed alongside physician leadership from the Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and UPMC Cancer Centers to speed the delivery of key medications to patients while also improving communication between the pharmacy and the physicians in regard to therapy progress.
