Dedicated and devoted to patient care
You and your staff are dedicated to providing the highest possible quality in healthcare. Time spent on paperwork—overcoming barriers to medication access or obtaining prior authorization (PA)—is time spent away from patient care. We understand. Sterling Specialty provides services customized to fit your needs, priorities, and workflow, including:
Faster results for patients.
Sterling Specialty Pharmacy is dedicated to continuous innovation to improve medication delivery time and patient experience. This focus allows us to expedite the prior authorization and appeals process, getting your patients the therapies they need, faster.
Improved staff efficiency.
We have a dedicated staff to support you throughout the PA and appeals process, helping you streamline paperwork and get your patients the medications they need more efficiently.
Patient education and support.
Providing patient education and clinical support, including proper use, storage, and administration of medications, is critical to your patients’ health outcomes. We have extensive experience with patient education and adherence counseling.
Keeping you connected.
The world of specialty medications is constantly changing. Our team is here to help with any questions you have on the medications your patients need.
A long history of independence and innovation.
Our roots run deep—inspired by the vision of Leonard Astrup—who in 1952 founded his first pharmacy in Austin, Minnesota. For over 65 years, Leonard’s vision and passion has directed our dedicated approach to patient care and partner integration—inspiring the creation of Astrup Companies.
Led by the second and third generations of the Astrup family, Astrup Companies has grown to encompass 17 independent retail pharmacies, 4 long-term care pharmacies, a state-of-the-art specialty pharmacy, a nationwide wholesale pharmacy buying group, and a charitable foundation dedicated to giving back to the communities we collectively serve. As the third generation of the Astrup family prepares for future growth, Astrup Companies remains united by a singular purpose: to build healthier lives through caring relationships.
Sterling Specialty Pharmacy is a proud member of Astrup Companies family. We are founded upon a rich heritage of personalized patient care, dedicated community service, and insightful innovation that spans more than six decades.
Sterling Specialty, together with our related Astrup Companies’ group of businesses, pledge this to our employees, patients, and partners—we will remain dedicated to our purpose, diligent in delivering the best patient care, and committed to leveraging our experience in the best interest of our patients, partners, and employees.
