St. Anthony's offers pharmacy services in two convenient locations: the Discharged Patient Pharmacy and one retail pharmacy.
Discharged Patient Pharmacy
If your doctor prescribes any medication for you to take when you leave St. Anthony's, please inform your nurse or the pharmacy staff that you would like your prescriptions filled before you leave.
The convenient Discharged Patient Pharmacy can handle all of your prescription needs. Your medications will be delivered to your room prior to discharge. And, you can get home sooner by avoiding an extra stop at a pharmacy.
The Discharge Patient Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans, checks and all major credit cards. If you have any questions about pharmacy services, please feel free to contact us.
The pharmacy is located on the 1st floor of the main building near the south elevators.
- 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday

Tube Station: 315
This pharmacy also is conveniently available for St. Anthony's employees, spouses and dependents.
The Retail Pharmacy is open to the public and staffed by friendly, professionals who are eager to assist you. Our professional staff of pharmacists and technicians goes above and beyond -- always striving to make a difference in the lives of patients and their families. Some of the benefits include:
- Plan acceptance: The retail pharmacies accept nearly all insurance plans at the same co-pay as national chains.
- Personalized attention: More interaction with pharmacist to discuss your medications.
- Quality products at a competitive price: Good Sense and Select Brand generic OTC products are available for less cost.

Take Your Medications Safely & Effectively
Medications are prescribed to improve a patient’s health – whether it’s to fight a disease, lower cholesterol or provide pain relief. But, medications must be taken properly to ensure the best results. Keep a list of all medications that you take (including prescribed medications, nonprescription medicines, herbal products and home remedies). Also, be sure to keep a list of all medications you cannot take due to allergic reactions. Share these with your physician and pharmacist.
