Trinity Pharmacy offers delivery
Patients can also pick up medications curbside
Sometimes after visiting a doctor, picking up a prescription is not an easy task, but now patients can have them delivered to their front door from Trinity Pharmacy.
Trinity Pharmacy, which is located inside UnityPoint Health — Trinity Regional Medical Center next to Java City, will deliver the prescriptions for free inside the city limits.
“We are hoping this will help our patients with ease of access to their needed medications,” said Outpatient Pharmacy Manager at Trinity Pharmacy Jake Crimmins. “Our pharmacy technicians will be making the deliveries mid to late afternoon.
“Patients that would like to use the service can call into the pharmacy to get everything set up.”
Typical delivery days for Trinity Pharmacy are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. But if the need arises, prescriptions can also be delivered on the other days on a case-by-case basis. Patients are just asked to call the pharmacy for details and availability of delivery.
“This is a great option for those patients who are homebound or have trouble getting around,” Crimmins said. “Along with the delivery option, we also offer curbside pick-up. We have a designated parking spot right outside the front door in the roundabout.
“Patients can park and call into the pharmacy and we will bring out their medications right to their car.”
Trinity Pharmacy also offers help with patients’ medications.
“A couple of years ago we started bubble packing medications for patients,” Crimmins said. “This is very helpful for patients that have a hard time remembering to take their meds or have a tough time keeping them straight. This is also a free service. The patients are only responsible for their regular copayments for the prescriptions.
“We keep the patients scheduled medications at the pharmacy and package two weeks at a time for the patients. They are able to pick these up or have them delivered on a regular basis.”
The Trinity Pharmacy is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
“We are a full service open door pharmacy that accepts most major insurance coverages,” Crimmins said. “We do have discount cards that are available for those without prescription coverage.
We are also available to help VA patients with a two week supply of medications while they await shipment from the VA pharmacy.”
Patients can also take advantage of a handful of services at the pharmacy.
“A few other services that we offer are routine immunizations, flu shots, pneumonia, shingles, tetanus boosters and COVID shots,” Crimmins said. “We also have Medication Therapy Management (scheduled one on one comprehensive medication reviews with a pharmacist).
“We also have a Meds 2 Beds program, which is a bedside delivery service for patients leaving the hospital or out-patient surgery.”
