The MATRX Team

THE MATRX WAY

We provide custom pharmacy services and communication, allowing our partners to focus on the wellbeing of their residents.  With local control and leadership, we customize our services to blend with the processes of each facility. Residential care can be maintained in the foreground while Matrx works efficiently in the background.

HISTORY

Matrx began as the long-term care division of Kusler’s Pharmacy. In 2000, at the request of local Adult Family Home owners and a Mental Health provider, Kusler’s began customized packaging and delivery for the local community. Jason Hunter came on board in 2002 and became manager by 2005.

With Jason’s leadership, the number of facilities expanded until they could no longer be efficiently serviced from a retail pharmacy. He and Janet Kusler partnered in 2013 to open Matrx, an independent, “closed door” pharmacy that provides tailored services to senior care and mental health facilities. “Because we are local and independently owned, we can quickly respond to the changing needs of our homes and their residents.” says Mr. Hunter.

Matrx continues to expand, offering pharmacy services throughout Western Washington, while maintaining the individual relationships that keep their services and communication unique.

Packaging should work around your processes and flow, not the other way around. We will find the most efficient and easy-to-use packaging… for you.

My facility has been really pleased with the organization and attention to detail that Matrx pharmacy provides.
