Lee Memorial Hospital has a new and convenient feature - Lee Pharmacy, a full-service retail pharmacy located off the main lobby
"One of the main goals for our new pharmacies is to make sure that patients leave the hospital with a complete understanding of their medications," Mark Collum, director of ambulatory pharmacy services for Lee Memorial Health System, said. "It is important for our patients to always understand why they were put on a new medication and to always know about any potential side effects."
Patient education and satisfaction drives the pharmacists to deliver the highest level of customer service.
"We want our patients to develop personal relationships with our pharmacists," Collum said. "Our pharmacists will always go out of their way to help our patients learn about and feel comfortable with their prescription medications."
Leaving the hospital with prescriptions in hand adds a welcome convenience for our patients. The pharmacies will also offer home delivery via mail, he said.
Additionally, as part of Lee Memorial Health System, the pharmacists have access to patients' electronic health records, which allow the pharmacist to view all medications prescribed, ensuring another layer of patient safety.
Lee Pharmacy's operating hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
