Clinical Pharmacy Services
Carthage Area Hospital is proud to announce that we now offer clinical pharmacy services to patients admitted to our hospital. Our clinical pharmacist, Dr. Christopher Bradley, performs medication reconciliation on all patients to ensure that you are continuing to take the appropriate medications in the hospital that you were taking at home. This continuity of care is critical to providing excellence in care and to ensure best outcomes. In addition, our clinical pharmacist is available to answer any questions you may have about your medications (in hospital or “home” prescriptions). Dr. Bradley also provides a comprehensive medication counseling upon discharge and a complete review of medications you are taking in our hospital and at home to ensure best outcomes. These services are just another way that Carthage Area Hospital is committed to being your hospital for personal care.
