We are committed to ensuring our patients receive the best care possible every step of the way,” said Elliot Manager of Ambulatory Pharmacy Services Bill McCormick. “This accreditation demonstrates our commitment to and excellence in knowledge and competency for managing life-changing specialty medications for our patients. This accreditation was possible due to hundreds of hours of work across departments at Elliot Health System.”
