On Nov. 27, Hackensack Meridian Health and Ocean Medical Center officials held a ribbon-cutting to celebrate the opening of the HMH pharmacy at the Brick Township facility.
The pharmacy more than doubled its space from the previous location in the hospital, and is now easily accessible with an exterior entrance near the parking lot. The retail pharmacy will expand services to fill prescriptions for team members, patients being discharged, and provide hard-to-find medical supplies and nutritionals for the community.
Ocean Medical Center is one of the first Hackensack Meridian Health hospitals to expand its outpatient pharmacy to create a new standard across the network. According to HMH, the new pharmacy has an expanded inventory and now offers a one-stop shopping experience for prescription medications, over-the-counter and health care-related products.
Items available include wound care dressings, medical equipment, stockings for vascular patients, cast covers, post-stroke aids, aromatherapy and natural remedies, blood pressure machines, diabetes testing kits, and more.
The pharmacy is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 7 p.m.
