About Fairview Specialty Pharmacy
Fairview Specialty Pharmacy is a full-service pharmacy that specializes in filling prescriptions for patients who need certain high-cost biotech and injectable medications. These specialty medications help patients with complex conditions including multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, certain types of cancer, solid organ transplant, and hemophilia. These drugs can be injected, infused or taken orally, and typically require special handling and other specialty expertise.
You have selected a physician who is a specialist — it also makes sense to choose a pharmacy that specializes in your medication needs. The pharmacists at Fairview Specialty Pharmacy are trusted, local healthcare providers who have unique training and work exclusively with specialty patients. Our pharmacists provide valuable education to our patients and help to simplify and provide support for their health condition. Get your specialty medication from a trusted, local health care provider.

Our History
Fairview Specialty Pharmacy was created in 1992 to fill the unmet and complex needs of University of Minnesota transplant patients. At the time, Fairview Specialty Pharmacy developed clinical programs to help patients with newly transplanted organs maintain their difficult and often changing drug therapies. Fairview Specialty Pharmacy is one of the most advanced transplant specialty pharmacies in the industry. Many patients who began service with us in 1992 are still living with transplanted organs and receiving their medications from us.
We have taken our high touch model forward to service the needs of patients who have complex and unique drug needs. We now provide the full range of specialty products with demonstrated consistent growth year-to-year.

Our Mission
Our mission is to improve the health of those we serve. We commit our skills and resources to assist people, partners, and providers in achieving the best outcomes possible.
