Guardian Pharmacy LLC, one of the nation’s largest long-term care pharmacy companies, was selected by Brookdale Senior Living, the nation’s largest senior living provider, as a preferred pharmacy provider.
Through this partnership, Guardian and Brookdale will work together to provide quality pharmacy products, services and education to enhance the health and well-being of Brookdale’s long-term care residents at select independent and assisted living communities across the country.
Guardian was awarded the preferred pharmacy designation as a result of the company’s ability to assist Brookdale in their efforts to develop a newer, safer medication administration process to reduce the risk of medication errors; provide local support for billing and dispensing with pharmacists available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer resident questions; offer onsite training sessions and educational courses for residents and their families and more.
“At Brookdale, we seek pharmacy partners that align with our mission of enriching the lives of those we serve,” said Kim Estes, senior vice president of clinical services at Brookdale Senior Living. “Guardian’s reputation for providing a high level of customer service and personalized support focused on resident well-being was a deciding factor for us. This partnership truly offers strong support for our business and residents.”
“This partnership represents another milestone for Guardian as we continue to grow and expand our services and pharmacies nationwide,” said Rich Eakins, vice president of sales at Guardian Pharmacy. “Brookdale is known throughout the industry for enriching the lives of its residents with safety as their top priority, and we are honored to be working with them. Together we can focus our combined energies on providing the best possible care for America’s aging population.”
