Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) today announced the launch of new chronic disease management and specialty pharmacy services for patients living with chronic and complex conditions across the region. The services will be offered in partnership with leading specialty pharmacy services provider Trellis Rx, LLC (“Trellis Rx”), now part of the CPS Solutions, LLC family of companies.

The new services will further MVHS’s mission to deliver premier, patient-centered, and high-quality care in Central New York. Trellis Rx specialty pharmacists and patient liaisons will be embedded in MVHS care teams to work in coordination with providers to ensure patients receive the high-touch support needed to manage complex medication regimens.

This integrated approach will improve medication access, increase adherence, and streamline the care experience for patients with serious conditions like cancer, HIV, heart disease and diabetes. Ultimately, the new services can lead to better patient outcomes and quality of life.

“For so many people in our region, living with a chronic condition means dealing with extra burdens—like juggling appointments, managing expensive drugs, and working through complicated paperwork and approvals,” said Christopher Houle, PharmD, BCPS, BCGP, CDCES, Director of Pharmacy Services, MVHS. “Patients and their loved ones have enough to worry about. These new services and caring team members will give patients and their loved ones much-needed support so they can focus on what matters most—the healing journey.”

Specialty pharmacists and pharmacy liaisons will be hired by Trellis Rx to support the new services. Interested candidates can learn more about open positions and apply on Trellis Rx’s website at
