The 590-s.f. specialty pharmacy, located at 1701 River Drive, Suite 106, will be inside the TPQC facilities of the Caxton Building.
Schnucks Specialty Pharmacies focus on medication therapy for patients with complex disease states that range from cancer, multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C, to rare genetic conditions and STIs.
“We’re looking forward to expanding our local pharmacy offerings and operations while providing comprehensive and coordinated care for patients with chronic illnesses and complex medical conditions,” said Noah Tennyson, Schnucks director of specialty pharmacy. “Our specialty pharmacies connect these patients with the medications that are prescribed and support those who are facing financial challenges for these highly needed but also frequently costly medications.”
“Remarkable care is when we make healthcare easy and do it well the first time. TPQC aims to provide as many services as possible in one visit, in one place,” said The Project of the Quad Cities Executive Director Andrea Meirick. “Schnucks has been an integral part of our care team, and now having them right next door will only enhance both the experience and health outcomes of our patients. We believe in creating peak moments for our patients and so does Schnucks. It’s remarkable to have two organizations working side-by-side sharing such a strong value.”
The new location will be Schnucks’ ninth specialty pharmacy throughout the Midwest. The company also operates 107 retail pharmacies. Pharmacy hours will be 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday.
