Tuesday, June 23, 2015

MIRAMAR, Fla. – Univita Health is opening a second state-of-the-art infusion pharmacy in Orlando, Fla. The pharmacy, which will feature a sterile cleanroom specifically designed for compounding intravenous medications, will offer a wide range of infusion therapies, including IV antibiotics, total parenteral nutrition, pain management and enteral nutrition therapy. It will be located in Univita’s distribution center and will serve a 100-mile radius. The company already has such a pharmacy in Miramar, Fla. Together the two pharmacies encompass 11,500 square feet of space and employ 11 full-time pharmacists. “Last year alone, we filled more than 145,000 prescriptions,” stated Michael Muchnicki, CEO, in a press release. “Many patients prefer the convenience of getting their infusions in the comfort of their own homes instead of having to spend hours at an infusion center or other facility.” The pharmacy is slated to open this summer.
