Blanchard Valley Health System is celebrating the completion of its new inpatient and community pharmacy.
BVHS says the relocation and construction of the Blanchard Valley Hospital inpatient pharmacy, along with the Center for Medication Management, the outpatient pharmacy for community members, has officially been completed.
A small celebration was held by a handful of Blanchard Valley Health System associates and a ribbon cutting ceremony was conducted by the Findlay – Hancock County Chamber of Commerce.
BVHS says the pharmacy and Center for Medication Management were moved to a more convenient location within BVH, on the main floor adjacent to the Healing Grounds coffee shop.
Anyone can have a prescription filled at the new pharmacy, as it is open to the public.
“This project aligns with our mission of ‘Caring for a lifetime.’ We strive to bring the very best service and quality to our community, and the new state-of-the-art pharmacy will keep the program strong, long into the future,” said Myron D. Lewis, president and chief executive officer of BVHS.
The finished project not only offers more convenience to customers, but additional services as well.
Some of these services include increased over-the-counter product line, carrying select durable medical equipment like canes, walkers, crutches, home care aids and a few ostomy supplies to assist patients with urgent needs.
BVHS associates had the opportunity to provide input into the development of the layout and design of the pharmacy.
The team, comprised of subject matter experts from across the health system, used a mock 3D layout to evaluate workflow and processes.
