Before the holidays, Accredo helped brighten local spirits with a special gift of $20,000 to help United Way’s work to impact education, financial stability and health for our Mid-South area.

Accredo is nation’s largest specialized pharmacy, working with patients individually through therapy management processes to help sustain and improve lives.

In addition to the presentation to United Way, Accredo gave United Way staff and  three Tennessee state legislators (Steve McManus, Mark Norris and Mark White) an informative tour of their facility, increasing understanding of the company’s operations.

Bill Martin, Group Vice President, Business Development and Strategy for Accredo said the company is very happy about its partnership with United Way to help tackle community problems. Handling about 300 biological, injectable and high cost medications, Accredo treats patients who need drugs that cost over $5,000 annually for very serious, chronic conditions.

“We have very close ties with United Way and we appreciate what it does,” Martin said. “This donation is another sign that we are very much a part of this community and committed to the Mid-South. We have been through a lot of changes but we have a very important footprint here, and we are pleased to be able to help United Way serve a strong community that has many needs.”
