New pharmacy opens in Schenectady County
SCHENECTADY, NY (WRGB)---The new Ellis Nott Street pharmacy is now open.
The grand opening was celebrated Tuesday morning.
Ellis representatives say they hope the new on-site pharmacy will help lower hospital re-admissions and improve health outcomes.
That's because the pharmacy enhances patient access to prescriptions -- ensuring they get them before they're discharged.
"So really access is the issue, getting timely access to prescriptions for our employees and also for our patients so they can be discharged and have the appropriate medicines before they leave the hospital," said Executive VP of Operations Wendy Rosher.
