Our location has moved! Find us in the new Transitional Care Unit, located within Friendship Health & Rehab Center. The pharmacy is most easily accessed by our entrance on Bluebell Lane.
Our on-site pharmacy and gift shop lets residents easily pick up everything from prescriptions to medical supplies to household items like snacks and paper towels.
Friendship Pharmacy is also home to our Medication Check-Up program, which helps customers understand the effects of their medications and how they interact with one another. Our pharmacists work with you and your doctor to find the best solutions for your needs.
In addition, Friendship has partnered with the Medical College of Virginia and Shenandoah University Pharmacy Schools to design studies exploring geriatric medication management and related research. These studies focus on long-term benefits over the life of the patient versus short-term benefits that many hospitals might emphasize. In addition, our pharmacy offers:
Improves adherence to prescriptions by providing detachable, individual “blister” packs, labeled for the specific time to be taken, and contains prescribed dosage. This allows for the ability to take medications at the appropriately prescribed time, even when on the go. Serves as a visual reminder of when prescriptions need to be refilled, encouraging more timely refills and adherence to doctor’s orders.The pack can accommodate up to 18 medications of morning, noon, evening, and bedtime doses for 31 days.
The package features customizable labels that include the patient name and medication doses.
The pharmacy will attach a small electronic tag or talking label to your prescription container. It contains the same data that is on the printed label. Place the container on the ScripTalk Station Reader and hear the label information spoken aloud.
