Rite Aid Corp. has been awarded Specialty Pharmacy accreditation from URAC, a Washington, D.C.-based health care accreditation organization that establishes quality standards for the health care industry.

"We are very proud to have received full accreditation as a specialty pharmacy provider from URAC," said Robert Thompson, Rite Aid executive vice president of pharmacy. "Every day, Rite Aid pharmacists are committed to providing all of our patients, especially those receiving specialty pharmacy treatments, with the best care possible.

"This designation from URAC recognizes our efforts and is great achievement for our Specialty Pharmacy team."

With FDA approval of an increasing number of complex medication therapies, it is critical to have the processes in place to support these therapies and the clinical care programs to promote positive outcomes for patients, Rite Aid said in a news release.

Rite Aid Specialty Pharmacy= achieves this through "individualized patient care plans, disease and drug education and ongoing adherence management," the release said.

"By applying for and receiving URAC accreditation, Rite Aid has demonstrated a commitment to quality healthcare," said URAC President and CEO Kylanne Green. "In today's healthcare market, URAC accreditation provides a mark of distinction and we applaud Rite Aid for meeting strict quality standards and achieving URAC Specialty Pharmacy accreditation."

URAC, an independent, nonprofit organization, is a well-known leader in promoting health care quality through its accreditation, education and measurement programs, the release said.

Headquartered in East Pennsboro Township, Rite Aid is one of the nation's largest drugstore chains. The company trades its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol RAD.
