Please join us in celebrating Valeria Ulloa, Enroller/Facilitator at Sun River Health Marilyn Shellabarger in Shirley, NY. Valeria is Equiscript's Site Champion Spotlight for February!
Site Champions play a significant role in the success of Equiscript home delivery pharmacy programs across the country. They serve as the primary point of contact between the Equiscript team, providers, and patients. Site Champions are super-organized, super-involved superstars who carry out the tasks necessary to make a successful pharmacy program.
Sun River Health, formerly known as Hudson River Health Care, opened in 1975 by four African American women to address the community’s problems with accessing affordable and quality healthcare. Sun River Health Care has grown into a health system with 40 locations and serves more than 245,000 patients throughout Hudson Valley, New York City, and Long Island.

Equiscript Account Executive, Jim Blakely, said, "I nominated Valeria because she manages a large number of enrollments with limited time while maintaining a great collaborative attitude. She is a great example of what it means to be a champion!"
Site Champions help to ensure that patients get the best quality service and that they get their medications when they need them - which keeps patients happier, healthier, and more compliant with their healthcare. Thank you, Valeria, for being a top-notch Site Champion!
