PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Allegheny Health Network, a nonprofit hospital system, has expanded its home health business by acquiring a home infusion pharmacy in Sharpsburg, Pa., from Infusion Partners, a subsidiary of Elmsford, N.Y.-based BioScrip. The pharmacy employs 20 workers and provides antibiotics, pain management, hydration, chemotherapy and other medications that are administered intravenously at home. The deal will allow AHN to increase the capacity and geographic reach of its existing infusion pharmacy in Meadville. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
