Innomar Strategies Expands Network of Pharmacies Distribution Centers and Clinics
Oakville, Ont. – Innomar Strategies, Canada’s leading specialty drug service provider, and a part of AmerisourceBergen, announced today that it is adding another distribution center and three specialty pharmacies to the company’s existing specialty solutions infrastructure. The new locations will further strengthen Innomar’s already robust end-to-end, integrated solutions for improving access to specialty medication, optimizing supply chain efficiency and enhancing patient care.
Accompanying its distribution center in Burnaby, British Columbia, and its central distribution hub in Milton, Ontario, Innomar is set to open a new distribution center in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. The new distribution center enables Innomar to provide coast-to-coast logistical service for improved patient access in rural areas, where timely specialty drug delivery can be difficult. Innomar’s integrated distribution centers will support quicker turnaround time for emergency orders, regionally stored specialty products and expedited patient care.
Innomar’s specialty pharmacy in Winnipeg, Manitoba is the first of the three new pharmacies to open this year. The new pharmacies will offer a full suite of specialty pharmacy services, including cytotoxic and non-cytotoxic compounding, diagnostic services, cold-chain handling, education and adherence counseling for complex medications and integration with Innomar’s injection and infusion clinics. The new pharmacies will complement more than 110 Innomar Clinics™ already located across every province in Canada.
“We are proud to announce these targeted investments in our specialty solutions infrastructure,” said Guy Payette, President of Innomar Strategies. “Canada is a vast and diverse market, and our goal for the past 15 years has been to bring value to patients and our partners across the healthcare system. The new facilities opening over the next several months truly allow us to support the entire patient journey – from distribution, to dispensing and administration – as more specialty medications enter the market.”
