About the Pharmacy
The Pharmacy’s mission is to participate as a member of the health care team in accordance with the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Healthcare Facilities to ensure safe and effective medication distribution, medication therapy management, and medication education to patients, caregivers and health care professionals of Palos Health.
The pharmacy department relocated to a new state-of-the-art 400,000 square foot addition in 2013 and includes a perpetual inventory system, automated and unit-dose drug distribution systems and USP compliant clean room systems. The department provides comprehensive services 24/7 staffed by centralized and decentralized pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Decentralized functions include clinical services for in-patient units, including pharmacokinetic, renal, parenteral nutrition and warfarin dosing, and clinical and operational functions in the operating room satellite pharmacy.
