Austin, Texas, Oct 3, 2019 / PRNewswire/
HealthGrowth Capital LLC, a leading provider of financing alternatives and advisory services to community pharmacies across the US, is pleased to announce that Christian Herrington has been appointed to serve as the company’s President, as well as a member on HealthGrowth’s governing board.

“We are pleased to benefit from Christian’s extraordinary experience, with his increased day-to-day commitment helping us shape our offerings to match critical market gaps,” said Karl Kipke, Chief Executive Officer of HealthGrowth. “His expertise and long-term relationships reflect high respect among constituents spanning the entire pharmacy ecosystem. With access to the highest levels in our industry, we are rapidly developing ground-breaking service offerings and innovative financial products that will help pharmacy owners expand their success and profitability.”

While growth prospects are brighter today than ever before, significant changes outside the control of most pharmacy owners have presented challenges for many in the space. Adjusting to the new and sometimes murky rules, and gaining access to capital, are proving to be important determinants of the future success of most of these businesses. I look forward to helping HealthGrowth Capital strengthen its capabilities in these areas, to serve every independent pharmacy in this $85 billion space,” said Mr. Herrington.

Mr. Herrington’s experience spans more than 35 years with Bindley Western, Cardinal Health, H.D. Smith and AmeriSource Bergen, where he served in sales, sales management, and executive management roles.

October 24th, 2018 Posted by Health Growth Capital 0 thoughts on “HEALTHGROWTH CAPITAL AND KLOUDSCRIPT ALIGN TO HELP COMMUNITY PHARMACIES ENTER PROFITABLE SPECIALTY SPACE”

Austin, Texas, October 24, 2018 – HealthGrowth Capital and KloudScript have entered into a partnership to provide growth capital for community pharmacies seeking to enter the lucrative specialty pharmaceutical space.

“The operating landscape for community pharmacies continues to experience profound shifts. Once profitable business segments can become financially challenging very quickly,” said Karl Kipke, Chief Executive Officer of HealthGrowth Capital.  “Successful pharmacy owners must proactively pivot to higher-margin opportunities to increase profits.”

“The $150 billion specialty market focuses on high cost, high touch medication therapy for patients with complex disease states,” Kipke continued. “This agreement enables our customers to have the necessary capital to expand opportunities for pivoting their community-based retail pharmacy business and integrate specialty pharmacy care by joining KloudScript’s specialty pharmacy network.”

“In today’s market, it is almost impossible for community pharmacies to build a specialty pharmacy from the ground-up or even buy one without taking on insurmountable capital risk.  KloudScript offers an opportunity for pharmacies to participate in an alliance across targeted markets to lower the risk and barriers to entry for offering a specialty program,” said Rinku Patel, PharmD, Chief Executive Officer of KloudScript. “HealthGrowth Capital recognizes the enormous opportunity that the specialty market offers retail pharmacies. We are delighted to be partnering with HealthGrowth Capital in accessing programs that will help pharmacy entrepreneurs properly finance their businesses and help them maximize the operating performance of their pharmacies.”
