Mission Specialty Pharmacy
Mission's Specialty Pharmacy fills prescriptions for complex and/or expensive medications. A specialty pharmacy also provides additional clinical and administrative services, which vary depending on the pharmacy you choose to dispense your medication. Typically, a specialty pharmacy’s additional services should help you to manage your medications more easily.
At Mission Laboratory, our goal is to serve you and your family with the expertise and personal attention you expect from Mission Health. With locally based customer service, we work to make every visit as convenient as possible.
Working a lab appointment into your busy day can be tough. So, we have a Lab Express, and four My Care Plus locations in the area; parking is easily accessible and extended office hours give you flexibility in scheduling your appointment.
For general questions, contact Mission Hospital Laboratory Call Center at (828)213-5177
Please call your location to ensure they are open in the event of inclement weather.
Did You Know?
A generic drug is a “bioequivalent” of a brand-name drug. Bioequivalent is a fancy way of stating that the drug will have a biologically equal impact on your body as a brand-name product. All generic drugs are required to meet FDA requirements to ensure the safety and efficacy of the product, and additionally they have to display bioequivalence to their brand-name competitor. Generic drugs are almost always cheaper—extremely staggering in some cases—than the brand-name equivalents. Due to the price differences insurance companies prefer to pay for generic medications, they often will not cover any of the cost of a brand-name medication when a generic competitor is available.
