Dignity launches its own specialty pharmacy
Modern Healthcare

Dignity Health is the latest health system to enter the specialty pharmacy market.

The not-for-profit provider launched its own program to distribute medications for more than 20 complex diseases, and it plans to expand services to its broader national network of CommonSpirit Health.

Peggy Sanborn, vice president of strategic growth, mergers and acquisitions, and partnership integration at Dignity Health, said the health system began its specialty pharmacy program at the end of last year in its Phoenix market and has since expanded into Sacramento, Calif. It will enter six more of its service markets over the next few months.
