Overseeing Specialty Medications

Penn State Health has a Specialty Pharmacy where clinical pharmacists manage and oversee patients who need certain high-cost medications to manage complex or chronic conditions, such as:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Hepatitis
  • Psoriasis
  • Cancer

Working closely with the patient’s care team, these pharmacists ensure that patients get the very best outcome from these therapies.
