“We’re looking forward to expanding our local pharmacy offerings and operations while providing comprehensive and coordinated care for patients with chronic illnesses and complex medical conditions,” said Noah Tennyson, Schnucks Director of Specialty Pharmacy. “Our specialty pharmacies connect these patients with the medications that are prescribed and support those who are facing financial challenges for these highly needed but also frequently costly medications.”
The Project of the Quad Cities Executive Director Andrea Meirick says that this partnership with Schnucks will help her organization deliver on their promise of transforming lives through remarkable care.
