About Avita

We unlock the full potential of health.

Avita is a national pharmacy services organization that unlocks the full potential of health for patients with unique health needs and for our covered entity partners.

In addition to being a full-service pharmacy, our team has deep expertise in HIV, PrEP, STI, and LGBTQ+ care. We also have proven experience in onsite pharmacy and 340B program administration.

Avita provides care for more than 100,000 patients through over 250 covered entity relationships at 63 pharmacies nationwide. Avita is the largest independent nationwide provider of pharmacy services and solutions for Ryan White/STD Grantees, AIDS Service Organizations, and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs).

 

Patients who receive their pharmacy care from Avita are respected as individuals. We understand and know how to address the needs of communities that often are disproportionately affected by complex health conditions. We provide a wealth of services to support you, including medication delivery, online refills and financial assistance.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to unlock the full potential of health. We are committed to making a difference in the world today and in the future.

We help our patients unlock a healthier life by helping them access medication more easily through our onsite pharmacy or delivery options. We believe adherence and better outcomes start with knowledge, so we provide education and training for our patients and teams.

We help our partners unlock the full potential of their business by generating the savings available to them through the 340B program. We provide the support they need to serve their patients in the way that best fits their communities so they can grow their patient base and provide care for more people.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to provide individually focused pharmacy services, support, and advocacy for our patients and partners.

For our patients, that means treating them compassionately and creating personalized plans to ensure their care matches their lifestyle. We help them find ways to remember to take their medications as prescribed so they stay healthy.

For our partners, it means striving to help them grow their programs and increase their ability to support more patients as well as their efforts to provide education for their patients and communities. We advocate for their interests with payers, manufacturers, and other key stakeholders.

Our Values

Foundational to everything we do, our core Values bring our Vision and Mission to life:

Compassion: We understand and appreciate the needs of our patients, partners and team members to support them in the way they need and deserve

Collaboration: We work together, pursuing excellence with fervor because our patients and partners deserve no less than our best

Resourcefulness: We devise winning solutions to the unique challenges our patients and partners face. We are the pharmacy experts so they don’t have to be.
