October is National Pharmacy Month
and the perfect time to remind you that pharmacists and technicians at Sidney
Health Center’s Clinic Pharmacy have built a reputation in the community as the
friendliest and fastest pharmacy in town. Clinic Pharmacy patients often wait
less than ten minutes to get their prescriptions filled. This is very
impressive considering the pharmacy fills on average 200 prescriptions per day
or 6,000 prescriptions in a month!
Clinic Pharmacy staff is able to accomplish this because they possess more than
100 years of combined pharmacy experience in the community. The experience and longevity
has solidified personal relationships with customers, which enables the staff
to provide a personal experience unlike any other pharmacy in the area. Still,
the Clinic Pharmacy does more than simply fill prescriptions.
scenes, the staff is part of a large and comprehensive pharmacy services
department. As part of Sidney Health Center, the staff is able to interact with
other pharmacists and technicians that take care of you or your loved ones that
are admitted in the hospital, residents at Sidney Health Center’s Extended Care
facility, those in need of durable medical equipment, or patients receiving
chemotherapy at the Cancer Center. Furthermore, the staff collaborates with
your primary care physicians, emergency physicians, nurses, social workers, and
lab technicians to optimize patients’ medication therapy. Even with this
breadth of services the pharmacy department continues to seek new ways to
improve an individual’s overall health.
pharmacy staff recently started providing Medication Therapy Management (MTM)
services to patients. MTM services provide yet another opportunity for the
staff to work one-on-one with patients to answer any medication-related
questions and ensure medications are taken as intended. This will not only
optimize patients’ therapy, but result in improved outcomes for the patients.
is National Pharmacy month and a good time to drop by the Clinic Pharmacy to
show appreciation to the pharmacy staff for the important work they do, as drug
experts, to improve the health of those we serve. Plan to visit the Clinic
Pharmacy for an open house event on Thursday
October 20th, 2016 from 10
AM to 2 PM to meet and greet new and familiar staff members, and see its
newly renovated space. Refreshments will be provided.
