Hempstead pharmacy scores $35M NYS contract


A Hempstead-based pharmacy has scored a reported $35 million New York State contract to provide pharmacy services to government agencies across the state.

Community Care Rx, or CCRx, will provide pharmaceuticals for individual prescriptions to state agencies that do not have an on-site pharmacy.

The pharmacy already provides pharmacy services to assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, Office for People With Developmental Disabilities residential facilities and other long-term care providers in New York,

“We are thrilled that the New York State Office of General Services has chosen CCRx to provide pharmacy services to its partner agencies statewide, as this is a testament to our high standard of service and our commitment to excellence,” Hossam Maksoud, the chairman and founder of the pharmacy, said in a statement.

“I would like to congratulate all of our employees on this significant achievement,” he added. “This contract would not be possible without the steadfast dedication, day in and day out, of each and every team member to producing high-quality services that meet the stringent standards set by New York State.”

The pharmacy credits its capacity to take one new business seamlessly without disrupting service to existing clients as one reason it was awarded this contract.

The pharmacy’s focus includes 24/7 emergency services, medication packaging and technology, clinical support, quality assurance and a free delivery program. It also provides specialty pharmacy services, consulting services, staff training and educational seminars, insurance enrollment assistance and financial assistance programs, among other services.

“We are truly blessed to have many valued clients and partners, and we are committed to providing each of our diverse clients with excellent service and the utmost care for the people they serve,” Maksoud said. “We are looking forward to bringing our excellent care to the new agencies we will partner with as a result of the OGS contract.”
