Publix Pharmacy opens full-service location in Halifax Health Medical Center

Publix Pharmacy has finally opened a full-serve pharmacy in Halifax Health Medical Center, located in Daytona Beach, Fl., after making the announcement back in January of this year. 

“Publix Pharmacy is excited to begin serving the community at Halifax Health,” Publix’s vice president of pharmacy, Dain Rusk, said. “Halifax Health’s mission to deliver the best health care possible aligns with our culture of providing premier service to every customer who visits one of our pharmacies. Our Publix Pharmacy team is ready to care for patients at Halifax Health by providing the ease and comfort of bedside prescription delivery and the option of home delivery after discharge.”

Designed to provide prescription and over-the-counter medications for patients, visitors and the medical center’s team members, other items that also will be offered include personal care items and convenience items, the Lakeland, Fla.-based company said.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Publix Pharmacy to provide our patients access to their medications in the most efficient and timely manner,” Halifax Health president and CEO Jeff Feasel said. “Publix and Halifax Health are both striving to lead our industries in providing exceptional patient and guest experiences every day. 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.”

Currently, Publix Pharmacy operates 14 in-hospital pharmacies throughout the state of Florida.
