The Carle Specialty Pharmacy at GBMC assists patients who are taking complicated, high-cost medications called specialty medications. Many of these medications require monitoring by highly trained pharmacists, special storage and handling, and may not be readily available at local pharmacies.

  • Once enrolled, patients can have their prescriptions shipped directly to their address of choice
  • Infusion patients can have their medications delivered directly to them during their visit to GBMC’s Infusion Center
  • All packages are properly insulated according to their temperature requirements
  • Once enrolled, a patient’s pharmacist will reach out periodically to discuss personalized medication needs prior to shipping any medications
  • A pharmacist will contact the patient’s doctor for refills if the prescription runs out, and notify the patient that it is ready for delivery

About Our Pharmacists

Our specially trained pharmacists have one goal: to improve the quality-of-life for patients. Our pharmacists:
  • Review patient laboratory results and medication history to improve communication with patients and their providers
  • Provide one-on-one counseling to manage medications and avoid harmful side effects
  • Are experts in chronic illnesses or issues such as cancer, transplants, infectious diseases, inflammatory conditions, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and heart disease
  • Offer expertise in injectable medications

Oral Chemotherapy

The oral chemotherapy program is designed with patients in mind; allowing them to be more engaged with treatment and experience more personalized care. It also means they have a healthcare team who cares for them throughout the entire treatment process. The familiar faces of the Carle Specialty Pharmacy team can help provide a level of comfort and support that other pharmacies cannot. Team members:
  • Coordinate care and facilitate drug access to limited distribution specialty pharmaceuticals

  • Deliver refill medications directly to patients' homes via UPS/Fedex
