Department Overview

Services

Our pharmacy department utilizes an integrative practice model, where pharmacists have responsibilities for both distributive and clinical functions. Advancement of our practice model includes the incorporation of state-of-the-art technological systems and implementation of a comprehensive electronic medical record.

Ambulatory care pharmacy services include: anticoagulation, diabetes, discharge/transitions of care management, pharmacist clinic (collaborative practice agreement to provide medication management for patients with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, asthma/COPD, smoking cessation, etc.) and infectious disease clinics.
