OnePoint Patient Care Celebrates Seven Years of Hospice Pharmacy Leadership in Las Vegas

CHICAGO, IL and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2015) - OnePoint Patient Care, a leading national hospice pharmacy services provider, announced today that it continues to grow its market leadership in Las Vegas and, with the addition of its newest hospice partner there, has expanded its share of the Las Vegas hospice pharmacy market to approximately 90 percent.

"We have dedicated our entire business to meeting the unique needs of hospices, providing their patients the level of service and care that can only be met by a local, community-based hospice pharmacy specialist," said Jeffrey Hohl, OnePoint's chief executive officer. "Our lasting local relationships with community healthcare professionals give prescribing and referring physicians peace of mind when referring patients to hospices OnePoint Patient Care serves."

Since expanding its services to Las Vegas in October 2007, OnePoint has made great strides in the market there, now serving 1,400 patients daily in Las Vegas, including more than 60 patients in hospice in-patient units. Nationally, OnePoint has grown to serve more than 150 hospices in 22 states. OnePoint attributes this rapid expansion to its superior service, specialism in hospice and its integrated package of local delivery, pharmacy benefits managements (PBM) and clinical consulting services that is unique among national hospice pharmacy services providers.

Nathan Adelson Hospice -- the largest and only non-profit hospice in Southern Nevada, caring for over 400 hospice and palliative patients each day -- has been a OnePoint hospice partner for more than three years. "OnePoint has simplified our processes and provided us superior service by giving us one point of contact for all our hospice pharmacy needs," said Carole Fisher of Nathan Adelson Hospice. "A PBM alone could not provide the level of service we require, and using a pharmacy that actually specializes in hospice allows our caregivers to provide a higher level of care to our patients."

"We have worked with other competing hospice pharmacy providers before, but only OnePoint Patient Care has the ability to serve our patients through their locally owned and operated pharmacy dedicated to hospice," said Candis Armour of Gerinet Healthcare, the newest hospice to join the OnePoint family. "With OnePoint, we no longer have to deal with billing disputes, medication profile errors and the inconvenience of remote dispensing -- and we have a single, accountable provider that ensures our needs are met."
