Pocahontas Memorial Hospital is excited to announce the opening of its new PMH Pharmacy Thursday, September 1. The new pharmacy is located in the former Pocahontas Pharmacy building on Duncan Road and is open to anyone.
Renovations began on the building in April and pharmacy staff is eager to show off the beautiful space. Adding to the anticipation of opening is the promise of specialty coffees and drinks in the pharmacy coffee shop.
Prescription transfers and filling will begin September 1 and is an easy process.
First, just call or stop by the PMH Pharmacy. Give us your information (name, address, birthdate, phone number, insurance information, and allergies, if any).
Second, give us the information about the pharmacy you will be transferring from (name, location, phone number).
Third, provide any prescription information you have (medication names, RX numbers). If you do not have this information—that is OK. We can obtain from your previous pharmacy.
Finally, come to the PMH Pharmacy to pick up your medications. Bring a copy of your insurance card. In the future, when your healthcare providers ask what pharmacy you use, tell them PMH Pharmacy and all refills, as well as new prescriptions will be sent right to us.
Earlier this spring, PMH Administration wrapped up a comprehensive countywide Community Health Needs Assessment and one of the top needs identified was more pharmacy options.
“We are so pleased to be able to deliver on this particular community need so quickly,”PMH CEO Andrew Bair said.
“We are proud to be able to continue the legacy of Jim Burks’ original pharmacy, in a small part, in utilizing the space he created.”
Come see the new PMH Pharmacy Thursday, September 1, and mark your calendar for the Open House during the PMH Health Fair Wednesday, September 14.
