Pharmacy Podcast Episode 56 LTC Pharmacy Champion Bent Gay with Gayco Healthcare

We interview LTC Pharmacy Owner and patient care advocate - Bent Gay BSPharm with Gayco Healthcare

Gayco Healthcare
Dublin, GA

When opening his longterm care pharmacy in 1993, Bent Gay had a simple mission: serving 4 longterm care facilities with integrity and good customer service.

Since its beginnings, the operations of Gay’s company, Gayco Healthcare, have expanded 10-fold, but the focus on quality and comprehensive care remains the same. This commitment is reflected in the company mission statement, which states that Gayco Healthcare strives “to add value to each of our longterm care facilities through our focus on quality and comprehensive resident care.”

Today, Gayco Healthcare serves more than 10 longterm care facilities, including skilled nursing, hospice, and correctional institutions. Gay strives to reduce the risk of medication errors by streamlining operations and by promoting open communication between the pharmacy and the facilities it serves. In addition, Gay promotes quality care by encouraging the use of clinical tools to ensure appropriate medication regimens and to help improve patient outcomes.

The pharmacy offers services that extend beyond the delivery of prescription medications, including pharmacist reviews, nurse medication pass reviews, and nurse regulatory reviews. The company also offers consulting and strives to maintain clear, concise, and easy-to-understand medical records.

Gayco Healthcare opened a 13,500-square-foot building to accommodate the expansion of its operations. The facilities offer a state-of-the-art IV room, stations for 22 pharmacists, and on-site day care.
