WellDyne® has a history of providing innovative solutions to the healthcare industry. Over the last twenty years, WellDyne has built their business on the principle that by delivering incredible service, they will create relationships which last a lifetime. The result of this customer focused strategy has been continuous growth for the company.
With WellDyne’s national base of business growing so large, the decision was made to open a second mail order pharmacy. WellDyne wanted a second location to provide additional capacity for growth, disaster recovery backup and better geographic balance with their Colorado operation. The company hired a site selection consulting firm to assist with the evaluation of locations throughout the Eastern United States. After a comprehensive search, Lakeland was chosen as the site for the new 62,000 square foot facility that will eventually employ 700 people.
WellDyne felt that Lakeland was the perfect place for their business to prosper. Lakeland is a well planned community that offers a great combination of small town hospitality coupled with big city amenities. This combination lines up well with WellDyne’s philosophy of providing incredible service while leveraging technology and innovation to provide smarter solutions. In addition to Lakeland’s vibrant and diverse business community, WellDyne believes the proposed USF Polytechnic University will serve as an excellent future source for highly technical workers. WellDyne hopes to work with USF Polytechnic University on joint research and business ventures that will improve health through innovation.
“We are a company that knows that our investment in technology and innovation gives us the lead in cost containment and accuracy,” states Damien Lamendola, President and CEO of WellDyne. “However, it is our people, and their commitment to service, that really distinguishes us from our competitors. We know that we will find a workforce in Lakeland that will be the basis for our continued growth.”
Many factors went into WellDyne’s decision to expand their business in Lakeland. First of all, Lakeland offered WellDyne a business friendly environment with an impressive workforce to help fuel their growth. Being situated between Orlando and Tampa provides WellDyne with easy access to national transportation services. In addition, the ideal year-round climate and the appeal of world class attractions provide the perfect draw for customer entertainment. WellDyne was searching for a leading community to be a partner in the company’s growth. Lakeland has provided the perfect strategic relationship for their future.
