Outpatient Retail Pharmacy
The St. Catherine Hospital Pharmacy team is committed to helping patients stay healthy. To provide extra support in making informed choices about taking their medications, the Pharmacy department at St. Catherine Hospital recently opened a retail outlet. This new pharmacy service provides patients with a more complete spectrum of care – one that continues after they return home.
St. Catherine Hospital recognizes the value in providing a continuum of patient care – one that doesn't end after discharge. The new hospital-owned retail pharmacy represents a significant opportunity to expand services to patients, the community, as well as to hospital employees and our volunteers.
Focus on Patient Needs
St. Catherine Hospital pharmacists use the most up-to-date computer programming and a state-of-the-art robotic automation refill for safety. The equipment enables staff to track pertinent health information about patients and fill prescriptions in a timely manner.
Patient safety is always top priority and with the proper tools, they make sure patients are receiving the proper medicine, education and care that they deserve.
When an inpatient is admitted to St. Catherine Hospital, to attain proper medication management, pharmacists conduct rounds daily with patients to counsel them on medication compliance, answer questions to offer assistance in making sure patients are committed to taking prescriptions. Taking the time to personally counsel and coach the patient can improve compliance which can be expected to reduce readmissions.
St. Catherine Hospital's Retail Pharmacy is conveniently located on the first floor of the Professional Office Building off the North Entrance. The office hours: Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. To learn more, call (219)392-7691.
