Date:3/3/2008

TEWKSBURY, Mass. and MEMPHIS, Tenn., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Comprehensive Pharmacy Services (CPS) with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH)/State Office for Pharmacy Services (SOPS) are pleased to announce their new relationship as of February 2008. CPS will provide state- of-the-art pharmacy services for all SOPS customers within participating agencies in the Commonwealth. SOPS chose CPS to replace its current vendor due to a number of factors, including CPS' expertise in enhancing the quality of pharmacy operations, optimizing drug utilization for improved outcomes, and reducing overall operational costs.

"SOPS is excited about the future prospects of the relationship with CPS due to their level of enthusiasm and commitment to quality, customer service and fiscal responsibility they have demonstrated with their current customers. Using their previous experience, CPS will bring technological improvements to the SOPS initiative, which will greatly enhance productivity and service delivery," said Louis Dell'Oilo, Executive Director of SOPS.

As the nation's leading independent pharmacy services provider, CPS will enhance the consolidated pharmacy program for SOPS that will showcase its expertise in: operational, clinical, inventory, financial and overall program management. Additionally, CPS will provide operational oversight to manage the daily functions of the individual on-site pharmacies and the Central Distribution Center (i.e. drug procurement, order fulfillment). CPS will also ensure that the program will be applicable for all Commonwealth agencies, including acute pharmacy practices, behavioral health pharmacy practices, correctional pharmacy practices and outpatient pharmacy practices.

"With Massachusetts being the first state to offer this type of overarching pharmacy program to all its agency customers, we are thrilled to be a part of such a monumental movement in the healthcare / pharmacy industries. We are confident that the new systems and processes we put into place will transform SOPS into an even more efficient, high quality, cost- saving entity, and hopefully neighboring states will consider adopting a similar program," said Don Nickleson, Chief Executive Officer and President of CPS.

Comprehensive Pharmacy Services is the nation's leading independent pharmacy services provider to hospitals and healthcare organizations -- delivering pharmacy service value through financial, operational, clinical, therapeutic, and regulatory expertise.
