IU HEALTH ARNETT RETAIL PHARMACY RELOCATING
An IU Health Arnett Hospital Release
—In an effort to better serve our patients and the Greater Lafayette community, Indiana University Health Arnett Retail Pharmacy will be relocating just inside the main entrance of the IU Health Arnett Hospital, entrance 4 at 5165 McCarty Lane, Lafayette. The pharmacy will continue to provide all currently offered services, such as immunizations and medication adherence packaging at the new location.
“By locating the retail pharmacy at the hospital, we can provide an integrated continuum of care," explained, David George, RPhD, MBA, Administrative Director of Pharmacy, IU Health Arnett. "Our pharmacists have full electronic access to the patients' hospital record, including inpatient medications, lab and microbiology results, physician's notes and pharmacy interventions. We can consult with the patient's healthcare professionals before the patient even leaves the hospital. We can address insurance issues. We can deliver the medications right to the patient's bedside before they are discharged. This is not only a convenience, but it also provides a major safety enhancement by ensuring that the patient has their medication in hand and is educated on how to use the medication before leaving the hospital. It is a very practical way to make sure the transition to home is successful."
The new pharmacy location is easily accessible for patients visiting the IU Health Arnett Medical Office Building, the IU Health Arnett Outpatient Surgery Center and the IU Health Arnett Emergency Department. CityBus provides service to the IU Health Arnett Medical Office Building seven days a week.
Parking at IU Health Arnett Hospital is available and free-of-charge in front of the building. There will be two designated spots for the pharmacy on the circle drive in front of Entrance 4.
In addition, patients with maintenance drugs will be accepted into the Pharmacy appointment-based medication program. This program offers convenient, scheduled once-monthly prescription pick-up services on Greenbush Street for eligible patients.
The IU Health Arnett Retail Pharmacy located at 2600 Greenbush Street will close on Wednesday, April 12 at 7 pm and will reopen at the new location, IU Health Arnett Hospital, 5165 McCarty Lane, on Friday, April 14 at 8 am.
