Apothecary by Design Acquires Healy Pharmacy

Apothecary by Design, a rapidly growing specialty pharmacy serving patients with complex conditions such as infertility, has acquired Healy Pharmacy, of Warrenville, Illinois. The transaction was completed March 4.

The two pharmacies will share resources in order to better serve patients and prescribers, and will each be better positioned to succeed in the increasingly competitive specialty pharmacy marketplace, according to ABD’s chief executive officer, Mark McAuliffe.

“By joining forces, both pharmacies are stronger,” he said. “For example, both Healy and Apothecary by Design are deeply committed to providing high-quality patient care; together, our pharmacies will be able to exchange best practices and deliver even better outcomes. We look forward to working with our new colleagues in Illinois.”

ABD and Healy both specialize in infertility treatment, serving complementary geographic markets with little overlap. In addition, McAuliffe said, the partnership blends each pharmacy’s unique areas of expertise, such as Healy’s strength in oncology and ABD’s experience in infectious and inflammatory diseases.

Healy patients will continue to receive the same personalized care, from the same location, according to Jack Quinnert, Healy’s pharmacist in charge. The pharmacy’s staff and leadership will remain in place, he added.

“The only changes patients or healthcare practitioners will experience in our service will be positive ones,” Quinnert said. “Both Healy and ABD are known for the way in which they interact with patients and collaborate with the care team. Drawing on each pharmacy’s strengths can only benefit the patients we serve.”
