Rural Colorado hospital to launch in-house pharmacy

Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center in Salida, Colo., will establish its own in-house pharmacy for patients and employees, according to the Ark Valley Voice.

The medical center spent months looking for an existing retail pharmacy partner, but decided instead to create its own pharmacy because there was "internal passion, expertise and experience" to grow the service in-house.

To compete with purchasing against larger providers, the hospital has contracted with primary vendors to  keep the in-house pharmacy pricing competitive for patients.

The board voted unanimously to establish the pharmacy, which will cost $135,000 to create.
