Our own pharmacy for personalized pharmacy care and quicker response
Pikes Peak Hospice & Palliative Care opened Palliative Pharmacy of Pikes Peak in June 2003 to provide specialized pharmaceutical care for our hospice patients. A notable feature of the pharmacy is the fact that we serve only our hospice and palliative care patients, and consequently furnish the highest quality of care.
Besides offering the expected services of a retail pharmacy (identifying drug interactions, answering therapeutic and pharmacology questions, and filling prescriptions), our staff has developed unique dosage formulations to address the care and challenges of hospice patients.
Advantages of dedicated on-site pharmacy
Our expert staff provides personalized pharmacy care to address your exact condition. If your needs change quickly, our pharmacists are able to respond quickly. In fact, our staff can develop unique dosage formulas to address specific symptoms. We can even make our own compounded preparations, topicals, IVs, and other medications with strengths customized exactly for your needs. Pharmists use a Tablet Press to make special small tablets that dissolve under the tongue for patients who are unable to swallow. And, medications can be ordered and delivered by Pikes Peak Hospice care teams.
Hospice-related medications are covered as part of patient care at Pikes Peak Hospice.
Our pharmacy has regular office hours during the week and our pharmacists are available 24/7 on call.
