Why Use a Specialty Pharmacy?

Kroger Specialty Pharmacy is different from a traditional retail pharmacy. Our purpose is to serve patients requiring medications that treat complex and chronic diseases. As a Kroger Specialty Pharmacy patient, we will guide you through your treatment by providing personalized, one-on-one care. Our dedicated Growth Hormone Center includes highly qualified clinical and patient care teams with the skills, training, and experience to help you understand the complexities related to the condition and the medications we dispense. We can also assist with the coordination of care between healthcare providers, insurance, and your medication plan. This team includes Pharmacists, Registered Nurses, licensed Social Workers, Patient Advocates, and dedicated Patient Care Coordinators.
