February 5, 2015

Orlando, FL – PerformSpecialty, a full-service specialty pharmacy wholly-owned by pharmacy benefit manager PerformRx®, hosted its grand opening on February 5, 2015 at the company’s Orlando headquarters. Following the grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony, the company invited attendees to an educational symposium and dinner.

More than 130 guests were in attendance at the afternoon opening, including the Honorable Rick Singh, Orange County property appraiser and Regina Hill, Orlando city councilwoman for District 5. Visitors were able to tour the 18,400-square-foot facility and speak with Dino Martino, R.Ph., executive director of PerformSpecialty and Mesfin Tegenu, M.S., R.Ph., president of PerformRx.

“PerformRx has a long and successful history of managing specialty drug products both on the pharmacy benefit and medical management sides — our URAC accreditation in disease state management helps to further illustrate this point,” Tegenu said. “We are developing a pharmaceutical care coordination model with the capability to interface with health plans’ medical management and care management systems. And to further complement our service offering and better position us to optimize patient outcomes, we have built our own state-of-the-art specialty pharmacy, PerformSpeciality, LLC.”

“As treatments for conditions like hepatitis C and multiple sclerosis become more advanced, having a specialty pharmacy that can both dispense these medications and support their proper use will be vital to ensure the best care for patients,” Martino said. “We’re very excited to be in Orlando. With our experience and programs, we will be able to provide patients with the best service possible.”
