Upgraded pharmacy facility opens in Trail

Upgraded pharmacy facility opens in Trail

TRAIL, B.C. — Work on a new pharmacy at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital has wrapped up.

The new pharmacy provides all services for patients while they are in hospital as well as home IV and oncology services for individuals in the community.

The pharmacy is triple the size of the previous one and meets National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities standards. It features a new dispensing area, a private patient consultation space and a conference room.

The enhanced pharmacy is part of a $38.8-million investment that also includes an expanded ambulatory care procedure unit. Renovations have also been made to the oncology, rehabilitation, cast clinic and health information management departments.

The renovated and expanded oncology department will open later this month. It includes exam, treatment and consultation rooms, and a new waiting room.

The updated and modernized physiotherapy department is scheduled to open in August. It includes enhanced working conditions and patient treatment areas. Once these spaces are open, Phase 2 of the project will commence, including renovations to vacated space in the old ambulatory care general clinic and pharmacy. The Phase 2 projects are expected to finish next spring.

The Pharmacy and Ambulatory Care Project was funded by the provincial government, which provided $23.3 million, and the West Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) District, which provided $15.5 million. The KBRH Health Foundation has committed to raising a further $250,000 for the project.
