PillPack Continues Growth in Utah

PillPack, an innovative national pharmacy, is expanding their footprint in Salt Lake City. The company has opened a 13,000 square foot advisory center that will eventually employ over 100 people in full-time, part-time, and flex-time sales and customer support roles. The Advisory Center team works closely with PillPack’s new corporate office in Park City, which is the company’s national headquarters for sales, growth and acquisition, and business development.

“Utah was a natural choice for PillPack to expand operations,” said TJ Parker, CEO and co-founder. “Our business is based on promoting better health with personal support that makes it easy for people to manage medications. Along with being incredibly friendly and service-oriented, people here understand a core benefit of PillPack: it enables individuals to help themselves. Our pharmacy and medication management tools aren’t about poking or prodding customers, but making sure the healthy choice is also the easy choice.”

PillPack is the first pharmacy specifically focused on serving people who take multiple daily medications. PillPack pre-sorts medications into packages labeled with the date and time for each dose and provides nationwide home delivery, making it easy for someone with a chronic condition to stay on track. The company also works behind the scenes to manage insurance claims, stay ahead of prescription refills and renewals, and monitor any change in medication for negative interactions. Customers have a pharmacist on-call 24/7 as well as both on- and off-line tools that simplify even the most complicated medication plans.

“The state is proud to support innovative companies like PillPack that aim to increase quality of life,” said Val Hale, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “PillPack chose wisely for its expansion locations and will reap the benefits of Utah’s business friendly environment and skilled talent pool.”

Geoff Swindle, Chief Business Officer of PillPack and site lead for the Utah facilities, commented, “As a native of Utah, it’s gratifying to help PillPack bring a wide range of employment opportunities to our area. We aim to help grow the local economy, while having a positive impact on health for people across the country.”

Founded in 2013, PillPack employs over 500 people nationwide and serves tens of thousands of customers in 49 states (shipping is not available to Hawaii). The company began exploring options in Utah in 2016, and worked closely with the local community to determine the best location for these new offices. PillPack is a fully-licensed pharmacy in every state it serves and is compatible with most major insurance providers.
