Outpatient Pharmacy Services

Kaweah Health (Kaweah Health) is an integrated healthcare delivery system anchored around a 581-bed community-based teaching hospital. With a complement of ancillary services and ambulatory clinics, Kaweah Health provides a broad array of primary and specialty care to a largely rural and medically underserved community. The Outpatient Pharmacy Department provides services to the community via a retail pharmacy open to the public, a pharmacy that serves only Kaweah Health employees, a home infusion pharmacy, as well as both pain management and ambulatory care pharmacists working in the District’s outpatient clinics.


Ambulatory Care and Pain Pharmacy Services

Pharmacists at Kaweah Health work throughout the District, and have been operating in the outpatient setting since 2015. Pharmacists are now present in all the rural health clinics, the Sequoia Health and Wellness Center, and the Kaweah Health Specialty Clinic Center. In the outpatient clinic settings pharmacists have patient appointments, manage complex medication regimens, send prescriptions, and order labs to assess medication effectiveness and safety. Additionally, pharmacist look at patients on a population health level by identifying gaps in care and assisting primary care physicians and specialists with closing those gaps. A pharmacy team also leads the Employee Wellness Specialty Program that manages medications for patients with diabetes, chronic infectious disease, and certain rheumatologic conditions.
