SimfaRose Pharmacy is named after Simfa Rusa Bonanno, the mother of Charles Bonanno, our company founder. Our name is a dedication to the courage and love she unfailingly demonstrated to her family. Simfa Rusa passed away after a valiant fight with cancer at the young age of 57. As a young man, Charles witnessed his mother’s physical suffering in addition to her struggle with healthcare providers and insurance companies for quality, personalized care.
The inspiration drove him to become a clinical pharmacist for the United States Veterans’ Administration where he learned to work with multi-faceted healthcare providers ensuring a seamless approach to healthcare. His passion and experience led him to create a community pharmacy that cares, and is there for its customers and their families when they need them most.
In 2007, Charles and his wife, Suzette, opened a brand new independent specialty pharmacy in Pembroke Pines, Florida. SimfaRose Pharmacy quickly became a trusted supplier of compounded, prescription, and over-the-counter medicines for both patients and healthcare providers. In 2015, SimfaRose expanded to two new facilities in New York.
Our fully-trained, bilingual staff possess years of experience in the Specialty Compounding field. Using the latest Sterile Compounding technology, we service the most complex patient therapies in a cost-effective manner. SimfaRose’s infusion team maintains continuity of care between all disciplines including patient medical referral sources, home health, pharmacy and ease-of-transition from hospital care.
Our modern clinical programs are designed to help patients maximize therapuetic outcomes. Our Home Medical Equipment division stocks an inventory of items for sale or rental which are available for immediate delivery.
