"Today's advanced drug therapies are creating medical miracles - able to stamp out serious illness and disease or manage chronic conditions. From this era in medicine, a whole new specialty has emerged - the pharmacy consultant. These professionals work alongside physicians and nurses to provide safe and effective medication review and management for patients."  Contact us!

Since 1976, Pharma-Care, Inc. has been setting the standard in the field of consultant pharmacy. Our pharmacy consultants provide services to a variety of health care facilities such as long term care, assisted living, residential care, adult medical day care, outpatient health clinics, same-day surgery centers, intermediate care facilities for the developmentally disabled, psychiatric hospitals, subacute health care units, and pediatric facilities.

Consultants are continually kept abreast of the latest developments on drug interactions along with clinical outcomes, quality assurance, and state and federal regulations.

Our reputation for the highest quality service has enabled us to become the largest such provider in New Jersey. It may also be why, since 1987, the New Jersey Department of Human Services has continuously chosen Pharma-Care, Inc. to provide consultant pharmacy services to state psychiatric hospitals, facilities for the developmentally disabled and veteran homes.
