Despite opening less than a year ago, renovations are already underway in the new clinic at Pine Falls Hospital. Pine Pharmacy will be operating an outlet pharmacy of sorts, out of the space, upon completion.
The initiative is currently slated as a 2-year trial, with the possibility of longer tenure if all goes well. The outlet will have no retail storefront. Amenity Healthcare, the current owner of Pine Pharmacy has confirmed that there will be no narcotics dispensed at the outlet location.
The main goal is to provide better services for those travelling long distances to get their medications, specifically those using medical transport. Secondarily, they would like to reduce to spread of germs during cold and flu season, by reducing the number of public places sick individuals need to visit after seeing a doctor.
Construction is slated to be completed in March, with the dispensary opening sometime in April.
