Since its inception, the Firelands retail pharmacy has filled over 230,000 prescriptions. Beginning as an employee-only service, the retail pharmacy opened its doors to the public in 2009, offering a combination of convenience, competitive pricing and personalized service to Firelands Regional Medical Center's outpatients and the general public.
Prescriptions for patients returning home can be processed and are ready for pickup upon discharge or following outpatient treatment or services. In addition to inpatients being discharged, outpatients from emergency room, outpatient surgery, digestive health, the cancer center and many campus-based physician practices frequently find our services convenient and competitively priced.

The Firelands Retail Pharmacy accepts most third-party insurance programs and honors the same co-pay structure as all other local retail pharmacies. For those patients who have no prescription coverage, we maintain an extremely competitive pricing structure. The popular $4/$10 generic program as well as the new $1.99/$5.89 generic program are both honored as well.
Complete medication records are maintained for each patient and are reviewed for potential interactions, duplications and sensitivities each time a new prescription is processed. Our pharmacist is always available to consult with patients at the time prescriptions are picked up—or by phone in the event that prescriptions are mailed.
