“This pharmacy allows us to have a lot of advantages. We actually have access to patient charts so we can pull insurance information, allergies, all sorts of demographic information. SO even if you’re a brand new patient with us you can walk right in and we will likely have the prescription already ready because we have access to that information.”

Another feature of the new pharmacy is the dispensing of medications through SmartCabinents which provide accuracy, prevent unauthorized access and eliminate cross contamination. The new location makes it the 5th UHS Pharmacy site along with Vestal, Endicott, Wilson and Delaware Valley.
