Institutional pharmacy is a pharmacy that provides a range of services to residents of nursing homes, hospitals, or hospice environments which do not have an on-site pharmacy. Without an on-site pharmacy, most long-term care facilities depend instead on institutional pharmacies to provide the necessary pharmacy products and services and to play an integral role in monitoring patient medication. In addition to providing pharmaceuticals, institutional pharmacies provide consulting services, which include monitoring the control, distribution, and administration of drugs and assisting in compliance with applicable regulations. The pharmacist also plays a role as medication therapy experts. Institutional pharmacists take responsibility for their patients' medication-related needs to ensure that their patients' medications are the most appropriate, most effective, safest possible, and are used correctly.

The market is dominated by three leading providers. There are many smaller pharmacies as well
