Regional Medical Center to Close Outpatient Pharmacy
According to RMC President and CEO Charles Williams, FACHE, the Outpatient Pharmacy has historically operated at a loss. “Part of ensuring the good health of those we serve involves refocusing our resources to maximize the level of care we provide,” said Williams. “The prescription needs of the community are already being met very efficiently by retailers with multiple convenient locations, so we have decided to invest RMC resources into strategic priorities that will directly benefit our patients.”
Individuals with prescriptions at the RMC Outpatient Pharmacy should call 803-395-2507 to make arrangements to transfer their prescriptions to the pharmacy of their choice before Sept. 28, 2018. Outpatient Pharmacy staff will be available to assist customers with transferring their prescriptions during regular business hours, from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Monday – Saturday.
"We are committed to making a smooth and seamless transition for those who have entrusted us with their prescription drug needs,” said Williams.
