Glen Mills, PA – June 21, 2023 – Pentec Health, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare services for complex care challenges, is transforming into a Complex Care Provider to reflect the expansion of its market-leading expertise into adjacent emerging and underserved areas of clinical nutrition and specialty care. Pentec Health’s (Pentec) modernized brand, including website and logo redesign, demonstrates its commitment to trusted, industry-leading solutions for patients with complex care challenges.
Pentec’s transformation builds on a foundation of excellence in patient-specific compounded, sterile medications and nutrition therapies delivered by highly trained and skilled nurses, pharmacists and dietitians, and supported by a dedicated patient services team that removes barriers to care.
“For 40 years, Pentec has been the leader in delivering highly specialized care in two therapeutic modalities – Intradialytic and Intraperitoneal Nutrition, as well as Intrathecal (pain and spasticity) pump management – and we are excited to announce our expansion into adjacent therapeutic areas,” said Matthew Deans, president and chief executive officer of Pentec. “Often, patients with chronic conditions have no access to specialized care or are being underserved by the teams currently delivering their care. We are committed to improving their lives by simplifying complex care challenges with our proven model delivered by our best-in-class clinical and patient services team.”
Patients benefit from expert care and individualized treatment in the setting of their choice. Pentec Health’s Intrathecal Nurse Fellowship received accreditation with distinction, the highest recognition awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Accreditation Program. This exceptional achievement sets Pentec apart as a leader in the field of implantable pump home management and distinguishes them among the fewer than 10 accredited fellowship programs nationwide.
In expanding to new clinical nutrition therapy areas such as Medical Foods and Specialty Care Services in the months to come, Pentec will draw from its deep expertise in delivering complex therapies safely and effectively at home or in outpatient facilities. The company specializes in overcoming barriers to care – from expanding access to specialty therapies and navigating complex billing and reimbursement issues to managing the risks and complications of these highly complex therapies with specialized clinical case managers, highly skilled nursing staff, and innovative technologies.
As an initial expansion, Pentec was recently selected by RELIEF THERAPEUTICS Holding SA as the exclusive distributor of PKU GOLIKE®, a novel medical food for special purposes (FSMP) for children and adults with phenylketonuria (PKU), a rare inherited metabolic disorder requiring lifelong management. Relief Therapeutics recognizes Pentec’s expertise in both nutrition support, as well as reimbursement across insurance benefits, to ensure providers and patients living with PKU have access to PKU GOLIKE®.
