UnityPoint Health - Trinity Regional Medical Center Opening a Full-Service Retail Pharmacy
UnityPoint Health – Trinity Regional Medical Center will be hosting an open house on Friday, November 3 from 2pm to 5pm to celebrate the upcoming opening of Trinity Pharmacy. The pharmacy will be open for business on the following Monday, November 6.
Trinity Pharmacy is a full-service retail pharmacy providing care and comprehensive services to patients, family members and employees of UnityPoint Health- Fort Dodge.
“When you are not feeling well, getting the medication you need quickly and easily can make a big difference. One of the benefits to being a patient or visitor to Trinity is having access to our on-site retail pharmacy,” states Jake Crimmins, Trinity Pharmacy Manager, “This added convenience means you do not have to make another stop on your way home.”
Trinity Pharmacy is conveniently located within UnityPoint Health - Trinity Regional Medical Center next to Java City, to allow patients to fill their prescriptions before being discharged or leaving their doctor's appointment. An individual may choose to fill their prescription one time, or if they need refills they can make a request by phone or in person. Over-the-counter medications and special ordering will be available. In addition, Trinity Pharmacy will accept electronic prescriptions and offer comprehensive medication review and counseling.
“One of the really exciting and unique services Trinity Pharmacy will be offering is bedside medication delivery,” shares Troy Martens, Chief Operating Officer. “The program is called Meds-To-Beds and is designed to offer the delivery of medication right to the patient as they are being discharged from the hospital and eliminating the need for them to stop at the pharmacy on their way home.”
Trinity’s outpatient pharmacy team will evaluate and prepare medications the patient’s physician prescribed for home, deliver them to their bedside and discuss them with the patient before they go home. While, this program will eventually be available to all units, Trinity Pharmacy will be gradually rolling it out on a unit by unit basis.
Trinity Pharmacy will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:30pm. Most major prescription insurances are accepted.
