Delta Health System Pharmacy Offering Local Expertise

Greenville, MS: The Delta Health System hospitals, The Medical Center, Greenville, and Northwest Regional, Clarksdale, offer full-service retail pharmacy services to patients and the community. Open Monday-Friday, the Specialty Pharmacy pharmacists and staff are dedicated to serving reliable, accurate and compassionate care to all they serve.

Amy Walker, Chief Nursing/Clinical Officer, says, “The hospitals have had the Specialty Pharmacy operational for years but many outside the hospital do not realize that this is a retail pharmacy open to the public. Our pharmacists offer excellent care and medical knowledge with the benefit of being local and knowing their patients and families. This healthcare service is vital to our community.”

The Specialty Pharmacy also utilizes an app, RxLocal, allowing customers to stay connected with their pharmacy using technology right in the palm of their hand. RxLocal enables consumers to refill their prescriptions, communicate with the pharmacist, and even set reminders for next medication refill.

Another advantage with the specialty pharmacies is the ability to take advantage of the lower medication pricing within the hospital. The pharmacy has a full listing of discount pharmaceuticals to ease the pricing burden for patients.

“Our Specialty Pharmacy in both hospital locations is such a benefit to our patients, their families and community members due to the convenience and local friendly staff who understand the patient’s needs,” said Jon-Michael Diehl, Director of Pharmacy. “As a 340B hospital, this allows many of our medications to be sold at a lower price or just as competitive as the larger pharmacies but with shorter wait times and stronger staff relationships. Our team takes pride in easing the patients mind when it comes to medication uses and provide the additional kindhearted care to each encounter.”

The Medical Center and Northwest Regional’s Specialty Pharmacies are located on the first floor of respective hospitals.
