Hidalgo Medical Services Partners with Genoa, a QoL Healthcare Company, to Provide Crucial Pharmacy Services to Residents of Hidalgo County
Silver City, NM (February 9, 2017) – Genoa, a QoL Healthcare Company (Genoa), announced it will open a full-service, on-site pharmacy at the Hidalgo Medical Services (HMS) Lordsburg Clinic (530 E. DeMoss Street) in early April 2017. As Hidalgo County’s only full-service pharmacy, this site will provide much-needed pharmacy services to a rural community of approximately 5,000 residents. Genoa and HMS have also partnered to open a new, full-service pharmacy on March 27, 2017 on-site at the HMS Community Health Center in Silver City, New Mexico (1007 N. Pope Street).
Dan Otero, Chief Executive Officer of HMS said, “HMS, in partnership with Genoa, is proud to offer our patients, clients, and the community of Hidalgo County a brand new, full-service pharmacy location at our Lordsburg Clinic. Under the discounted 340B pharmacy program, reduced rates on prescriptions may be available to qualified patients and clients. This new, on-site pharmacy at the HMS Lordsburg Clinic will off our patients, clients, and community members the opportunity to conveniently balance their helth needs with their busy lives.”
Genoa is improving consumer care and saving centers time and money throughout the country, making a positive impact in centers they work with and in the lives of the consumers they serve. Genoa offers a unique on-site pharmacy setting based on the needs of the center they are located in, and strives to be the provider of choice to both their center partners and their consumers. Consumers benefit from the interaction they have with the pharmacist; the organization eliminates inefficiencies by directing pharmacy functions back into the pharmacy and has more control over how medications are handled.
Although Genoa is a nationwide company, they have retained the feel of the hometown pharmacy and the services that go along with it. Being on-site allows their pharmacists and technicians to work closely with prescribers, nurses, and caseworkers, to provide the best possible care for each individual consumer. While they specialize in behavioral health, they have the capacity to fill all medications. They are able to bill Medicaid and Medicare, as well as private insurances. In addition, Genoa also offers several packaging options that can be tailored to fit the needs of the consumers, including specially designed adherence packaging.
