The Brigham and Women’s Outpatient Pharmacy Department, part of an integrative health care team, provides medications for patients receiving medical care at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and multiple hospital clinics as well as for Brigham and Women’s employees. The Outpatient Pharmacies are located at three convenient locations to meet the prescription and OTC needs of patients and employees of BWH.
All patients receive a comprehensive review of their medication therapy, are provided with written information about their prescriptions and offered an opportunity to receive one-on-one counseling by a member of our experienced pharmacist team. Our pharmacy team is dedicated to optimizing safe medication use and improving clinical outcomes. In addition to patient counseling upon pick-up, we offer services such as medication synchronization, blister packing and a 24-hour prescription refill line.
If you have any concerns about your drug therapy such as drug-drug interactions, potential drug allergies, or dosing, our licensed pharmacists can review your medical history and readily contact your providers to clarify their orders. Patients requesting refills should call 24-48 hours in advance of picking up their medication.
