Our pharmacy staff is made up of pharmacists and registered technicians.

We manage medication use and provide drug information, helping to build a medication system that is safe, effective, and efficient.

 

Please bring all of your medications to the hospital and give them to the nurse. This will help build your medication history profile. As well, there may be occasions when your own supply of medication could be used while you are in the hospital. It is very important to let us know if you have any allergies, or have had any adverse effects to any medications.
