About Advanced Care Specialty Pharmacy!

Our History

Advanced Care Specialty Pharmacy’s National Pharmacy Network fosters close working relationships for all allowing for seamless care for every patient.

Through our direct distribution model we ship products directly to physician offices and patients’ homes for easy and convenient delivery ensuring that product integrity is not compromised during transit. Our model is particularly useful for products that:

  • Are temperature sensitive
  • Require a physician’s intervention to use or administer
  • Are unavailable or difficult to obtain via retail pharmacy channels
  • Require tight inventory control
  • Require reimbursement navigation
  • Are undergoing clinical investigation
  • Require sterile specialty compounding
  • Benefit from Adherence Programs
  • Have unique reporting requirements

Our presence across Canada positions us uniquely to help our clients put their products directly into the hands of patients and physicians across the country. With our comprehensive services, we are a strategic service provider for physicians and patients nationwide.

Partnering with YOU every step of the way!
