NEW YORK, April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Columbia Care NY, LLC, ("Columbia Care" or the "Company") an affiliate of Columbia Care, LLC, one of the nation's leading medical marijuana companies, announced the successful launch of its home delivery pilot program to patients and designated caregivers across Western New York through the Company's Rochester location. Columbia Care completed its first home deliveries to New York State patients in March and expects to quickly expand the program to provide comprehensive state-wide coverage for all registered patients.
"As one of the leading national providers of medical marijuana products and services, Columbia Care is constantly searching for ways to improve patient access and care," said Nicholas Vita, CEO of Columbia Care. "Many of our patients live with life-threatening or chronic, debilitating illnesses, making it virtually impossible for them to travel. Thanks to the new guidelines approved by Governor Cuomo and New York Department of Health, our secure and professional home delivery service will vastly improve patient access, and in turn, their quality of life."
Combining the capabilities of Columbia Care's proprietary operating and technology platforms with secure home delivery protocols ensures its patients have 24/7 connectivity with Columbia Care's highly trained, state-licensed pharmacists as well as compliant and efficient access to the highest quality, formulated medical marijuana products in the United States. Columbia Care's existing network of regional dispensaries throughout New York will enable the Company to offer efficient responses to requests for delivery in a cost-effective manner, thereby significantly reducing the need for additional dispensary locations in local communities.
Licensed in nine (9) jurisdictions, Columbia Care, LLC is proud to operate one medical marijuana manufacturing facility and four dispensaries in New York State, with locations in New York City, Plattsburgh, Riverhead and Rochester. The Company's mission is to improve lives and communities through research, education, partnerships and the responsible use of their products to improve patients' quality of life.
