Jefferson Healthcare opens retail specialty pharmacy

Listen

Port Townsend, Wash.-based Jefferson Healthcare has opened a retail pharmacy that will dispense specialty drugs, offer home-delivery prescriptions and stock over-the-counter drugs and medical supplies, according to the Port Townsend Leader.

The pharmacy is  in Port Ludlow, Wash., in a building that used to be a primary care clinic. The location was selected because most of the local population is over the age of 65.

Because the new pharmacy is owned and operated by the health system, pharmacists can access patients' drug histories, labs and physician notes.

Jefferson Healthcare's  staff helped remodel the clinic into a pharmacy, according to the report.  The remodeling cost $80,000.
