Reading Hospital cuts ribbon to open new pharmacy

WEST READING, Pa. - A new pharmacy is open for business at Reading Hospital.

Officials cut the ribbon Tuesday inside the hospital's Fifth Avenue entrance in West Reading.

The hospital said the pharmacy will be open seven days a week. Customers will be able to track and refill their prescriptions online, and patients at the hospital can have their prescriptions delivered to their rooms.

"It's very convenient for the patients to have their medications and to have staff to help assist them in their knowledge of the medication usage," said Clint Matthews, president/CEO, Reading Health System.

Officials said the pharmacy will also serve as a drop-off location, where people can get rid of their old and unused medications.
