Publix to open retail pharmacy in Halifax Health Medical Center
Publix and Halifax Health are partnering on the construction of a full-service pharmacy at the medical center in Daytona Beach, Fl.
“As patients are discharged from the hospital, they are often prescribed medications to continue their care. Through our collaboration with Halifax Health, we’re able to bring the convenience of bedside delivery to the medical center’s patients and eliminate an extra stop on their way home,” Publix vice president of pharmacy, Dain Rusk said. “We also look forward to providing premier service to Halifax Health employees as we become their exclusive in-network pharmacy.”
The pharmacy will provide prescription and over-the-counter medications for patients, visitors and employees, and is expected to open in August.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Publix Super Markets to provide our patients access to their medications in the most efficient and timely manner,” Halifax Health president and chief executive officer, Jeff Feasel said. “Now, when patients leave the hospital or emergency department, they will easily be able to obtain their medication. We know convenience helps drive better health outcomes, and this pharmacy program provides that convenience.”
Patients will also be able to refill their prescriptions at their nearest Publix Pharmacy, the company said.
