Reading Hospital will open a third full-service pharmacy in Wyomissing on Wednesday, Nov. 29. Among its services, the new pharmacy will offer free home delivery to residents within a 25-mile radius.
“Having simple, easy, and affordable access to care is essential, and our community deserves it,” said Michael Kleinschmidt, PharmD, MBA, BCPS, CPEL, DPLA, Vice President of Acute Retail and Pharmacy. “We are grateful that we can provide our patients exceptional clinical services at our new community-based pharmacy location.”
Reading Hospital Wyomissing Pharmacy, located at 1001 Reed Ave., Suite 400, will offer automatic refills, text notifications, medication counseling, prescription transfers, and house complex medications that require special storage and handling. Patients can visit the pharmacy Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a closure for lunch between 12:30 to 1 p.m.
The addition of the new pharmacy means that Reading Hospital will now offer the community three full-service pharmacies to make picking up prescriptions easy and convenient. Reading Hospital Ambulatory Pharmacy is located at 420 S. 5th Ave., and Reading Hospital 7th Avenue Pharmacy is located at 301 S. 7th Ave., Suite 145. Both locations also offer a prescription drop-off box to dispose of unused or expired medications.
“This was a collective effort, and I am thankful to all the teams for their hard work and unwavering commitment to the health and wellness of our community,” Kleinschmidt said.
