Specialty and Infusion Support for Hospitals

Get trusted support in sourcing specialty and infusion therapies or discharging patients to start receiving their treatments at home.


We do the work so you don’t have to

At Optum®­­­­ Specialty Pharmacy and Optum Infusion Pharmacy, we understand that discharging patients can be complicated. We're here to make that transition easier and then continue to provide patients with quality care at home or at an infusion suite.

As an approved 340B partner, we help your resources reach more eligible patients and provide more comprehensive services.

Additionally, as a 503A provider, we only offer IV oncology therapies through patient-specific compounding services. This means you can access difficult-to-source specialty medications and powerful chemotherapy admixtures, either for treatment at the hospital or for patients once they're back home.
