Pharmacy opens as School of Medicine’s newest patient service

West Charleston Boulevard location serves those at patient care centers

The University of Nevada School of Medicine announces the opening of its newest patient service facility: a full-service pharmacy located next to its Patient Care Center on Charleston Boulevard, just west of I-15 in Las Vegas.

Named Campus Pharmacy West, this new facility offers an easily accessible location for patients seeing health care providers in the Patient Care Center. Convenient free parking is located just outside the pharmacy.

"To better serve our patients, the School of Medicine launched this new pharmacy at 1701 West Charleston Boulevard under the leadership of Lawrence Coleman, a highly experienced professional with extensive training in medication management," said Iain Buxton, Pharm.D., chair of the school's pharmacology department.

"He is available to counsel patients with any questions they may have when picking up their prescription medications."

Patients may also schedule an appointment for a review of all their medications and receive a personalized medication plan.

The pharmacy staff prides itself on the expert pharmaceutical care and friendly attention. They are dedicated to ensuring patients have the information needed to take their prescriptions safely and effectively.

"We can eliminate an after-work chore by filling prescriptions right here after your doctor's appointment or while you are at work. Get away from your desk and pick up your prescriptions during your break or have us deliver them to you," said Coleman, the pharmacy's manager.

"Save time with our Auto-Refill service -- perfect for routine medications. We accept Medicare, Medicaid and most major insurances."

The School of Medicine's immunization-trained pharmacists can administer a wide range of vaccinations, as well as make personalized recommendations that can keep families healthy throughout the year.

For those expecting a new child in the family, the Campus Pharmacy West offers vaccinations for protection against whooping cough. Just download the patient consent form to view the wide range of vaccines provided and bring the completed form to the pharmacy. Campus Pharmacy West offers a wide selection of over-the-counter medications, vitamins and supplements.

For the convenience of Nevada System of Higher Education employees, prescription transfers are available. Simply call ahead and have your prescription ready when you are.

The Campus Pharmacy West is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Call 702-992-6906 for more information.
