MISSISSAUGA, Ontario & PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MedAvail Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDVL) (“MedAvail”), a technology-enabled retail pharmacy company, will be opening its hub pharmacy in Orlando in July and its first four SpotRx locations in Florida, its fourth target state.
In-clinic SpotRx kiosks and courier home delivery will be available to patients at four Cano Health clinic locations in the Orlando area. SpotRx Pharmacy is the retail pharmacy brand owned and operated by MedAvail in the United States, which deploys and operates the MedAvail MedCenters.
“We are thrilled to begin our expansion into Florida with Cano Health, a partner who is equally passionate about optimizing patient outcomes,” said Ed Kilroy, Chief Executive Officer of MedAvail. “Our partnership with Cano Health is an exciting first step on our journey to serving Medicare patients in hundreds of potential clinics in Florida, where we have a total annual market opportunity of over $3.7 billion.”
MedAvail’s SpotRx Pharmacy business is primarily focused on the Medicare (65+ year old) market and the medical clinics where they receive care. The SpotRx MedCenter allows patients to virtually consult with a pharmacist and fill their medications within clinics, eliminating the need to visit a pharmacy. SpotRx also provides patients the option to have their medications delivered to their homes free of charge.
“Our partnership with SpotRx will enable us to provide a high touch pharmacy experience to our patients while also providing convenient on-site access to over-the-counter and prescription medications,” said Dr. Richard Aguilar, Chief Clinical Officer of Cano Health. “We want to ensure that our patients receive high quality, affordable care and medication adherence plays an important role in population health management.”
