ProxsysRx Launches Retail Pharmacy, Additional Services for Louisiana Health System

BIRMINGHAM, AL — Birmingham’s ProxsysRx has opened its latest on-campus pharmacy for Terrebonne General Health System, a 321-bed non-profit public hospital with more than 200 physicians and 1,500 employees.

“Terrebonne General Pharmacy has the largest retail space of any pharmacy we’ve opened to date,” said George Salem, CEO of ProxsysRx. “We’re thrilled by the leadership we have in place. Our Pharmacist in Charge, Derel Smith, came to us from a regional grocery chain — where he was Director of Pharmacy Operations, in charge of more than 600 locations.” 

ProxsysRx will also use its proprietary software system to support the various programs the company will manage for Terrebonne General Health System. “We are particularly excited about our relationship with Terrebonne, given the size of the health system and the diverse community of patients it serves,” Salem added.

ProxsysRx’s contract with Terrebonne General Health System includes additional critical services for the health system, notes VP of Growth Howard Hall. “We will be using their pharmacy as a hub of prescription services for Terrebonne’s patients, employees, and physicians. In addition to staffing and managing the health system’s Meds To Beds prescription delivery service for outpatients, we’ll offer a variety of personalized prescription services to their physicians and employees. For instance, physicians can easily set up recurring-prescription services to patients after they’re discharged — offering them the option to have patients’ prescriptions delivered to their offices or directly to patients’ home addresses.” 

“We are thrilled to offer this level of service to our patients and community,” said Phyllis Peoples, president and CEO of Terrebonne General. “Many patients lack access to get their prescribed medications and therefore are not able to fully recover. Now with our “Meds to Beds” program in place, patients will leave the hospital with their needed medications in hand so their post hospital recovery can start immediately.”

ProxsysRx offers Meds to Beds support for 13 other hospitals, and now owns or operates 26 hospital-based retail pharmacies across the country.
