Specialty medical supply stores are booming in the U.S. and Canada, with new owners taking advantage of the country’s surging demand for specialty medicine.
But even as a few have made inroads, specialty pharmacies are still struggling to stay afloat.
A specialty pharmacy is a pharmacy that sells only a certain type of medicine.
The company that owns it owns it, not the individual patients, said one specialist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Specialty pharmacies are in need of new and innovative ways to expand their sales.
They are struggling to find buyers, he said.
“There are not many of them in the market,” the specialist said.
The specialist said that the new owners of the specialty medical supply chain are buying it for a low price, perhaps around $1,000 per share.
In its most recent financial results, the company said it expected to close its stores by the end of 2020, and that it is currently planning to start offering discounts to patients who are on Medicare and Medicaid.
The firm is also selling the other major part of the company, the pharmacy, for a hefty sum, to a group of private equity firms that are focused on buying specialty pharmacies and will be taking the assets to the United States, the specialist added.
The specialty pharmacy was built in the 1950s and has been a key part of Canadian health care since it opened in 1973.
It has about 1,000 locations in Canada, according to its website.
The new owners plan to keep the specialty pharmacy and the stores, which are the only remaining stores in Canada with a pharmacy on each floor, open as normal.
The owner of the Canadian specialty medical chain, which also owns the United Kingdom’s GSK specialty pharmacy chain, is planning to sell it to its own investors.
The buyer is not expected to be disclosed.
The new owners have a history of taking a hands-off approach to their businesses, but they have not yet disclosed what specific changes they plan to make to the chain.
The deal could be the first time in history that the Canadian brand will be sold to private investors, said Dr. Chris Wilson, a senior lecturer in pharmacy at the University of Toronto.
“It will be a big deal,” he said, adding that it could have a major impact on the quality of the product sold in specialty pharmacies.
Wilson said that a number of private investment firms had expressed interest in buying the specialty chain, and said that they could potentially make money from the deal.
In Canada, the specialty pharmacies have become popular with patients who want to be treated by a medical professional.
But there have been concerns that the chain’s ability to compete in the highly competitive Canadian market could be undermined by the new owner’s new interest in private investment.
According to a recent survey conducted by the Canadian Medical Association, only 9 per cent of the approximately 16,000 doctors in the country said they had confidence in the company’s ability, or willingness, to manage the specialty supply chain, compared with 32 per cent who said the same about the UnitedHealth group.
The survey also found that, among those doctors who did have confidence, only one-quarter believed that the company could manage the business effectively.
Many patients are also concerned about what will happen to the specialty brand.
A number of specialty pharmacies in Canada have closed over the past few years because of the increasing demand for the products they were providing.
When the specialty stores are not selling their products, patients end up going to the emergency department or urgent care, or end up spending a lot of time in the hospital, said Richard Gorman, president of the American Medical Association.
Gorman said that many patients are still frustrated by the fact that the specialty brands they buy in the United and Canada are not available in Canada.
But Wilson said that he does not think the current situation is likely to change, because there is little pressure on specialty pharmacies to do anything about it.
Specialty pharmacies were once popular with doctors because they were very cheap and they could provide a great range of medicine to patients.
But as the specialty specialty market has grown, the prices of specialty drugs have soared and the number of prescriptions issued has also risen, he added.
And specialty pharmacies often have to compete against the same providers of drugs that are being prescribed to patients, and the costs of that competition have also increased.
Some doctors are starting to wonder if they should keep the chain open, because they are not sure they will be able to compete, said Wilson.
For some doctors, the deal is a significant step in the right direction.
It is not a bad deal, said the physician, who asked not to be identified for fear of losing his job.
It’s a great deal for patients, he explained.
I’m glad it’s happening.
