Senderra Rx Specialty Pharmacy recently announced the opening of a Flint Township-based Patient Services Center. The new Center represents a $675,000 investment and will bring 170 new jobs to Flint Township over the next three years.

The Texas-based specialty pharmacy will receive a $500,000 Business Development Program performance based grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC).    Additional assistance will also be provided by Flint Township.

“We were pleased to see the range of qualified people in the region,” said Purifoy.  “The State of Michigan and Flint Township made it a win-win situation to bring the Center here to Michigan.  We received a great incentive package and we know that we will be able to find the qualified people we need in Genesee County.  This new Service Center provides a great opportunity to expand on our service-oriented traditions.”

Senderra Rx is a disease management specialty pharmacy serving patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, osteoporosis and multiple sclerosis.  The company provides dedicated resources for patients to assist all aspects of therapy management.  Proper patient education regarding medication and support will be provided through the Service Center.

Currently, there are 34 employees at the Center.  Nine of the employees were hired through the State of Michigan’s Community Ventures program, which provides payments to employers to encourage employment of the long-term unemployed.
