Allegheny Health Network expands infusion business with acquisition

ahn_logoThe Allegheny Health Network, in Pennsylvania, is expanding its home health business by purchasing a Pittsburgh pharmacy that specializes in home infusion medicines.

The North Shore-based nonprofit hospital system, which is owned by Highmark Health, said its Healthcare@Home division acquired the home infusion pharmacy in Sharpsburg from Infusion Partners, a subsidiary of Elmsford, N.Y.-based BioScrip Inc., for an undisclosed price. The pharmacy employs 20 workers and provides antibiotics, pain management, hydration, chemotherapy and other medications that are administered intravenously at home.

The deal adds to Allegheny Health Network’s home infusion business by increasing capacity and geographic reach from its existing infusion pharmacy in Meadville. The network, the second-largest hospital system in Western Pennsylvania, has been expanding its home care offerings in recent years as it competes with UPMC, including acquiring a medical equipment supplier and forming a joint venture with a provider of home care and hospice services.
