A retail pharmacy has just opened inside of the Northeast Regional Medical Center. The Pharmacy at RMC will focuses on making sure the patients receive their medication before leaving the hospital. There is a very small number of hospitals that have its own retail pharmacy.
This will eliminate patients not going to pick-up their medications from an off campus pharmacy as quickly as they should. The Pharmacy at RMC is expected to increase patient outcome which is the main focus at RMC.
The pharmacy at RMC will operate to make sure the needs of the patient are always met before they are discharged from the hospital.
