MetroHealth Opens New Retail Pharmacy in Beachwood

The MetroHealth System has opened its 11th retail pharmacy at the Beachwood Health Center.

Patients and community members will now have a more convenient way to refill and pick up prescriptions on the first floor of the health center.

The new retail pharmacy is located at 3609 Park East Drive and while the grand opening is officially Monday, August 30, patients can start getting prescriptions and over-the-counter items now.

The new pharmacy will offer:

  • The best possible price for prescriptions.
  • Free home delivery of medication (with same-day service in some cases!).
  • Flavored medication for children.
  • Immunizations.
  • COVID-19 vaccinations.
  • Low-priced over-the-counter medications.
  • Free parking.

Beachwood Health Center offers a variety of services. It’s also home to a MetroExpressCare, so having a pharmacy onsite will allow patients who have acute care needs and convenient access to antibiotics and other medications.

“We are excited to continue to expand our retail pharmacies throughout The MetroHealth System,” said Ryan Mezinger, executive director of pharmacy services. “We want to continue to give our patients a convenient option to pick up their prescriptions and keep their medications affordable. Beachwood pharmacy opening allows for us to have more of a presence on the east side of Cuyahoga County.”

The pharmacy’s hours will be Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

About The MetroHealth System

The MetroHealth System is redefining health care by going beyond medical treatment to improve the foundations of community health and well-being: affordable housing, a cleaner environment, economic opportunity and access to fresh food, convenient transportation, legal help and other services. The system strives to become as good at preventing disease as it is at treating it.

The system’s more than 600 doctors, 1,700 nurses and 7,800 employees go to work each day with a mission of service, to their patients and to the community. As Cuyahoga County’s safety-net health system, MetroHealth plays an essential role in the region, caring for anyone and everyone, regardless of an ability to pay.

Founded in 1837, MetroHealth operates four hospitals, four emergency departments and more than 20 health centers and 40 additional sites throughout Cuyahoga County. The system serves more than 300,000 patients, two-thirds of whom are uninsured or covered by Medicare or Medicaid.

MetroHealth is home to Cuyahoga County’s most experienced Level I Adult Trauma Center, verified since 1992, and Ohio’s only adult and pediatric trauma and burn center.

As an academic medical center, MetroHealth is committed to research and to teaching and training tomorrow’s caregivers. Each active staff physician holds a faculty appointment at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Its main campus hospital houses the Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s Lincoln-West School of Science & Health, the only high school in America located inside a hospital.

Knowing that good health is about much more than good medical care, MetroHealth has launched the Institute for H.O.P.E.™ (Health, Opportunity, Partnership, Empowerment), which uses a coordinated, collaborative and strategic approach to help patients with non-medical needs such as healthy food, stable housing and job training.

The MetroHealth Glick Center, a new 11-floor hospital, is under construction on the system’s main campus in Cleveland and is scheduled to welcome its first patients in October 2022. The billion-dollar project is the cornerstone of a wider neighborhood revitalization effort led by the system and its partners in the community.
