About The Well Care Group
The Well Group started with the opening of their first location, Well Care Pharmacy in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2007. At the time, the mission was simple, “Create a Pharmacy that made a difference in people’s lives.” The primary goal was to offer excellent customer service, affordable prices to the uninsured, and free delivery anywhere in the Las Vegas Valley. With an aggressive expansion plan, Well Care Pharmacy soon became the largest independently owned Pharmacy chain in Las Vegas expanding from 1 location to multiple locations serving communities across the Las Vegas Valley.
In 2013, a major consolidation in the industry occurred and Well Care Pharmacy successfully sold its retail operations to CVS Pharmacy while retaining its Compounding Pharmacy and “Long Term Care” Pharmacy that serviced hospitals, group homes and skilled nursing facilities. Today, they continue to operate Well Care Compounding, Long Term Care and MDRx, a program that enables Physicians and Private Practices to dispense medication at the point of care.
During this transition, they piloted a new program, Well Care Health, utilizing Clinical Pharmacists in an effort to reduce hospital readmissions. In its first year of adoption, Well Care Health was able to show dramatic improvement in patient outcomes and measurable reduction in readmissions.
