Diplomat Pharmacy has opened a 75,000-square-foot facility in Chandler, Arizona, to bolster pharmacy operations and ensure business continuity. The company expects the location to create 200 local jobs over the next year.
CEO and Chairman Brian Griffin said the Chandler facility increases Diplomat's capacity to serve more patients with greater efficiency. It will feature operational capabilities redundant to those at Diplomat's other pharmacies nationwide, including call center services and dispensing.
Griffin called the expansion a significant step forward. He said expanding Diplomat's operations, technology, and personnel will help ensure the company can always provide uninterrupted service to patients and partners across the U.S.
"Our patients face complex and chronic health conditions. It is our duty to serve those patients and guarantee their timely access to critical medications," Griffin said. "This addition reflects our investment in doing what's best and right for our patients."
Griffin said the move reflects Diplomat's strategy to provide a scalable platform to meet growing demand for customized services throughout healthcare.
"As patient services become a competitive driver for the industry, Diplomat's service model is primed to meet the market demand," he said. "This new space will allow us to provide the best service more intelligently and efficiently to providers, manufacturers, and payers — ultimately to deliver better care to patients."
