Doylestown, PA, 2014-4-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — ShopRite will open a seven-day-a-week pharmacy inside Doylestown Hospital this spring, offering patients the same level of care and convenience that customers have come to expect at its traditional retail stores.
The pharmacy, perched just off the hospital’s north lobby, will mark ShopRite’s first location inside a medical facility. It is scheduled to open June 1, 2014.
“We are looking forward to working with the hospital to make access to medications and medical supplies convenient for all patients,” said Joe Cowhey, president of the Cowhey Family Supermarket, a family business owns and operates the ShopRite of Warminster.
In addition to filling prescriptions, the pharmacy will also offer a broad array of over-the-counter medications. Patients treated in the medical office next to the hospital can also have their prescriptions filled before they leave the hospital grounds.
“We are committed to partnering with Doylestown Hospital, following its high quality standards of patient care and service to the community,” Cowhey added.
Doylestown Hospital is located at 595 West State Street in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
