BERWYN, Pa.-(September 30th, 2019)- AscellaHealth, a specialty pharmacy benefit manager (SPBM), serving commercial, Medicare and Medicaid segments, was ranked 14th on the Philadelphia Business Journal’s 2019 “Soaring 76” list of fastest-growing companies in greater Philadelphia region as measured by revenue over a three-year period from 2016 through 2018. AscellaHealth is the only specialty pharmacy benefit manager on the list.

“Making the ‘Soaring 76’ list is an outstanding achievement for our team and a testament to our loyal client base,” says Dea Belazi, president and CEO, AscellaHealth. “Our success stems directly from the relevant and timely value we provide to our clients. As an innovative specialty pharmacy benefit manager, our high-touch model includes clinical interventions, adherence counseling, psychosocial assessment, integrated nursing staff, refill reminders and delivery coordination as part of AscellaHealth’s competitive, value-based strategies.”

Every year, the Philadelphia Business Journal ranks the fastest-growing companies in the area based on Securities and Exchange Commission filings and honored at an awards event where the ranking of each company is revealed.

Companies must be headquartered in Greater Philadelphia, have no parent company and have generated at least $750,000 in revenue in 2016 and at least $2 million in 2018 to qualify.
