Trinity Pharmacy offers delivery | News, Sports, Jobs

Sometimes after visiting a doctor, picking up a prescription is not an easy task, but patients can now have them delivered to their front door by Trinity Pharmacy.

Trinity Pharmacy, which is located inside UnityPoint Health – Trinity Regional Medical Center next to Java City, will dispense prescriptions for free within the city limits.

“We hope this will help our patients easily access the medications they need,” said Jake Crimmins, Ambulatory Pharmacy Manager at Trinity Pharmacy. “Our pharmacy technicians will make deliveries mid-afternoon or late afternoon.

“Patients who want to use the service can call the pharmacy to set everything up.”

Typical delivery days for Trinity Pharmacy are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. But if the need arises, prescriptions can also be issued on other days on a case-by-case basis. Patients are simply asked to call the pharmacy for delivery details and availability.

“It’s a great option for patients who are housebound or have difficulty getting around,” Crimmins said. “In addition to the delivery option, we also offer curbside pickup. We have a designated parking space just outside the front door in the roundabout.

“Patients can park and call the pharmacy and we’ll bring their medication right to their car.”

Trinity Pharmacy also offers help with patient medications.

“A few years ago we started to bubble wrap medicine for patients,” Crimmins said. “This is very helpful for patients who have trouble remembering to take their medications or have trouble keeping them straight. It is also a free service. Patients are only responsible for their regular co-payments for prescriptions.

“We keep medications scheduled for patients at the pharmacy and package two weeks at a time for patients. They can collect them or have them delivered regularly.

There is a sign and parking spot at the front door of UnityPoint Health designated for drive-in medication pickup.

Trinity Pharmacy is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

“We are an open-door, full-service pharmacy that accepts most major insurance coverages,” Crimmins said. “We have discount cards available for people without prescription coverage.

We are also available to assist VA patients with a two-week supply of medication while awaiting shipment from the VA Pharmacy.

Patients can also take advantage of some services at the pharmacy.

“A few other services we offer are routine vaccinations, flu shots, pneumonia, shingles, tetanus boosters, and COVID shots,” Crimmins said. “We also have medication therapy management (scheduling comprehensive medication reviews with a pharmacist).
