Genoa, a QoL Healthcare Company Pharmacy Now Open at Ridgeview!

Oak Ridge, TN —Ridgeview and Genoa, a QoL Healthcare Company (Genoa) are very excited to announce the opening of a full-service, on-site pharmacy located within Ridgeview’s Main Center in Oak Ridge. This is Genoa’s 337th pharmacy nationwide and their tenth pharmacy in the state of Tennessee.

“We are eager to add this service to our continuum of care for the people we serve,” stated Brian Buuck, Chief Executive Officer of Ridgeview Behavioral Health Services. “Having Genoa’s high quality pharmacy services aligned and imbedded within Ridgeview will be a tremendous benefit in our provision of comprehensive integrated care.”

Genoa was selected for this partnership because they are the most experienced provider specializing in pharmacy services for behavioral health clients. Genoa has a proven history of improving care and improving the lives of the consumers they serve. Genoa will offer a unique on-site pharmacy setting at Ridgeview’s 240 West Tyrone Road location.

Although Genoa is a nationwide company, they have retained the feel of the hometown pharmacy and the services that go along with it. Being on-site allows their pharmacists and technicians to work closely with prescribers, nurses, therapists and case managers, to provide the best possible care for each individual consumer. While they specialize in behavioral health, they have the capacity to fill all medications. Genoa is able to bill TennCare and Medicare, as well as private insurances. In addition, Genoa also offers several packaging options that can be tailored to fit the needs of the consumers, including specially designed adherence packaging.
