St. Clare Hospital in Lakewood has expanded its services by adding a retail pharmacy where patients and others in the community can get their prescriptions filled and purchase over-the-counter medications.
The Franciscan Pharmacy at St. Clare is open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The phone number is 985-6290. The pharmacy can be easily reached through the hospital’s main entrance at 11315 Bridgeport Way SW.
Other services provided by the pharmacy’s staff include compounding specialty prescriptions and delivering discharge medications to patients’ rooms throughout the 106-bed hospital. Most medical insurance plans are honored by the pharmacy.
“We strive to be the community’s best health resource,” says Ron Broekemeier, regional director of Franciscan Pharmacy Services. “Providing convenient access to a retail pharmacy with an expert staff and a full suite of services enables us to better meet the community’s needs.”
The Franciscan Pharmacy at St. Clare joins an expanding network of customer-focused outpatient pharmacies at Franciscan Health System‘s St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma, St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way and St. Anthony Hospital in Gig Harbor (opens in March).
