What We Do
Our Pharmacy services integrate professional knowledge, ethics, experience and skills.
Together, our team of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, support personnel and managers contribute to pharmacy services across WRH’s two hospital sites. Pharmacy staff plays a vital role in optimizing patient care related to medication use. Our services support other health professionals and serve hundreds of patients a day. In addition to filling prescriptions and providing patient education, we are also on the leading edge of research and technology use. Technological advancements continue to improve accuracy, safety and efficiency of dispensing. We use fully-computerized patient drug profiles to check for drug interactions, therapeutic duplications and dose range checking. An automated drug dispensing system (Pyxis) is in place on selected wards at both sites.
