About The Well Care Group: The Well Group started with the opening of their first location, Well Care Pharmacy in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2007. At the time, the mission was simple, “Create a Pharmacy that makes a difference in people’s lives.” The primary goal was to offer excellent customer service, affordable prices to the uninsured, and free delivery anywhere in the Las Vegas Valley. With an aggressive expansion plan, Well Care Pharmacy soon became the largest independently owned Pharmacy chain in Las Vegas expanding from one to multiple locations serving communities across the Las Vegas Valley.
In 2013, a major consolidation in the industry occurred and Well Care Pharmacy successfully sold its retail operations to CVS Pharmacy while retaining its Compounding Pharmacy and “Long Term Care” Pharmacy that serviced hospitals, group homes and skilled nursing facilities. Today, they continue to operate Well Care Compounding, Long Term Care and MDRx, a program that enables Physicians and Private Practices to dispense medication at the point of care.
During this transition, The Well Care Group developed programs that focused on the behavioral health population. The mission was clear; to create a comprehensive program that reduces the fragmentation of care for this population. This program has been successful in reducing hospital readmissions and improving the lives of the people and communities they serve. Well Care’s services include: Pharmacy, Psychiatry, Family Practice, Therapy, Case Management, Laboratory, BST/PSR, Mobile Crisis Assessment Team (MCAT), Psychiatric Urgent Facility (PUF), Transportation, and Housing. The Well Care Group now operates two Behavioral and Medical clinics in Southern and Northern Nevada.
