San Martin Campus Partners with Walgreens Pharmacies to Deliver Prescriptions

When you aren’t feeling well, the last thing you want to do is stop at a pharmacy to pick up prescriptions. Patients discharged from the San Martin Campus at St. Rose no longer have to deal with this inconvenience because St. Rose and Walgreens have launched a program that brings prescriptions right to the patient – before they leave the hospital.

Patients simply call an in-house Walgreens technician who picks up their prescription, runs it to Walgreens and returns with the medication within an hour. When the technician delivers the patient’s medication, they call a Walgreens pharmacist while in the patient’s room, and the pharmacist talks with the patient, reviewing the medication, how it should be taken and what possible side effects could be.

“This program has taken off, and we hope it keeps gaining momentum as we continue to make the discharge process a more simple experience for our patients,” said Vicky VanMeetren, president/CEO of the St. Rose Dominican Hospitals-San Martín Campus. “Our patients have truly appreciated the convenience of not having to run to a store once they are discharged to pick up prescriptions. Another great benefit is that our hospital employees can also use the service.”

The Walgreens system at the San Martín Campus is interlinked with the entire Walgreens pharmacy system, so prescription refills are automatically entered and can later be picked up at the patient’s Walgreens home pharmacy.

Siena Campus One of Most Beautiful Hospitals in the World

Did you know … that our Siena Campus was named the eighth most beautiful hospital in the world by Healthcare Business & Technology? 

Anyone who has visited a St. Rose hospital knows how beautiful they are, but it’s nice to have that fact confirmed. Hospitals used to have sterile white walls and very stark – or little – decor. Now you see vibrant colors, eye catching materials and artistic elements both inside and out.

When developing the list of The 25 Most Beautiful Hospitals in the World, interior and exterior features and their health-promoting qualities were considered. The different designs included warm woods and nature-inspired elements, soft color schemes and facades that complemented their natural settings. The Siena Campus boasts all of these features and more … a great example would be our healing garden (shown here).

We’re proud of our beautiful hospital, but wImagee’re even more proud of our staff … they are the ones who truly give life to the building, and most importantly, to our patients.Image
