Our pharmacists are your pediatric medication experts.

Pharmacy Services

The Orange Pharmacy, Blue Pharmacy and Yellow Pharmacy prepare and dispense prescriptions for patients, hospital employees and medical staff.

Specialized dispensing services include compounding medications for pediatric use, reviewing patients’ medication profiles and providing medication counseling for all patients with the use of easy-to-understand pictograms as part of the new Pediatric Health Literacy Program.
