PCA Pharmacy Announces Opening of 8th Location in Urbandale, Iowa

New Location Product of Partnership with Accura Healthcare

PCA Pharmacy, a customer focused and innovative provider of complete pharmacy services, is excited to announce the opening of their 8th location, based in Urbandale, Iowa, effective May 1, 2019. PCA also anticipates continued expansion in the Southeast and Midwest.

PCA’s new location is the product of a new partnership with Accura Healthcare, a growing provider of Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, and Hospice services in 21 locations throughout the Iowa market. At each Accura nursing and rehabilitation center, PCA Pharmacy will be providing its innovative pharmaceutical services, including its Meds-to-Home and Meds-to-Beds programs, which focus on providing customers with a smooth transition from the hospital to a Skilled Nursing facility and then back home.  In addition to helping to reduce recidivism rates and increase patient satisfaction, these programs are perfectly suited to the shifting senior housing industry, especially as the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) goes into effect in October 2019. PCA anticipates hiring approximately 20 new employees to staff their new location, with additional positions projected as the company grows.

“Helping manage recidivism through partnerships, such as ours with Accura Healthcare, will be key as PDPM begins to affect healthcare communities across the U.S.,” commented Joe Whitt, President and CEO of PCA Pharmacy. “We are excited to expand into the Iowa marketplace, and we look forward to building partnerships with other companies like Accura that value exceptional service and support.”

“We have built Accura Healthcare on the values of trust, integrity, accountability, commitment, and kindness. It is our mission to be partners in care and family for life with everyone who we work with daily,” commented Ted LeNeave, President and CEO of Accura Healthcare. “I have seen first-hand that amazing customer service and quality provided by PCA, and I can’t think of another pharmacy provider that I would have as family.”

PCA Pharmacy provides customer focused, innovative pharmacy services at skilled nursing, assisted living, and other healthcare facilities in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Mississippi, and Iowa. With multiple pharmacy locations, PCA is large enough to meet the most demanding requirements with innovative technology, clinical support and cost-effective systems, but small enough to offer personal service and attention.
