Millennium Pharmacy Expands in New Jersey
Date:6/29/2010

CHICAGO, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Hamilton Park Health Care Facility, a skilled nursing facility in Jersey City, New Jersey, has contracted with Millennium Pharmacy Systems for pharmacy services to both their Skilled Nursing and Assisted Living residents.

Traditional pharmacy services in the nursing homes environment require a time-consuming manual process of managing medications. However, Hamilton Park will now manage medications in a real-time online environment using Millennium's state of the art electronic ordering application. Additionally, Millennium provides unique 3- and 4-day packaging designed to reduce medication waste from frequently changed or discontinued prescriptions common to nursing facilities.  Millennium will also install an on-site, secure, medication cabinet to give Hamilton Park nurses immediate access to medications needed for late night admissions and emergencies. Hamilton Park will implement Millennium's proprietary software system using laptops attached to medication carts and eliminate paper processing of documentation. This solution will drive online ordering, verification and documentation of accurate administration, and real-time reporting.

George Arezzo, Hamilton Park Administrator, thoroughly evaluated pharmacy providers before making a decision. He stated, "There's not a pharmacy provider that compares to what Millennium is offering. We have been supported by Partners Pharmacy, an affiliate of the Care One organization, for many years, but it is no longer the right option for us. Millennium's solution will bring value to our residents and help us better manage the business. The opportunities for improvement can't be ignored."

Millennium Pharmacy Systems services the entire state of New Jersey from two pharmacy locations, located in Rockleigh, New Jersey and Hatfield, Pennsylvania. "We heard from many in the industry that nursing facilities in New Jersey were ready for alternatives to their pharmacy provider and wanted the sophistication in a system that Millennium offers. Millennium studied the market and decided to invest in the region. It was clear the market was ready for a different approach, and we are confident we have the best solution for nursing homes to provide top quality care, improve compliance, and control costs. I'm delighted Hamilton Park shares that belief," stated Millennium CEO, Richard Scardina.

Hamilton Park will be among the first Millennium customers in the state. Millennium operates ten closed-door pharmacies servicing facilities in ten states plus the District of Columbia.
