FRISCO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--US Bioservices, an independent specialty pharmacy and a part of AmerisourceBergen, today announced that 2017 was a record breaking year for new business wins in three strategic areas – oncology, rare and orphan and specialty infusion. US Bioservices received access to 28 new products in 2017, including 10 oncology products and three rare and orphan therapies. These additions position US Bioservices as a leader in providing appropriate access to critical specialty therapies.
“Patients struggling with cancer and managing rare diseases require very specialized, clinically-coordinated care and service. We understand the critical expertise and commitment required to deliver solutions and support to patients who benefit from specialized therapies,” said Kelly Ratliff, President of US Bioservices. “We were built, over 25 years, on providing high-acuity pharmacy and nursing support. Because we began as a home infusion pharmacy – providing infusion and nursing services to patients upon discharge from an acute care setting – we have a unique understanding of, and appreciation for, the level of care our patients need and deserve. We continue to align our investment and innovation strategies to ensure that we remain a premier partner in support of oncology and rare disease patient populations.”
