MetroHealth’s Ohio City Health Center Opens New Full-Service Retail Pharmacy
MetroHealth’s Ohio City Health Center has added a new full-service retail pharmacy to make its newest location a one-stop-shop for patients.
Located on the first floor near the registration desk and WIC office, the new pharmacy offers:
- The best possible price for prescriptions.
- Free home delivery of medication (with same-day service in some cases).
- Flavored medication for children.
- Low-priced over-the-counter medications.
- Easy access to RTA.
- Free parking.
"The community relies heavily on public transportation or being able to walk to where they need to go,” Ryan Mezinger, Associate Director, Retail Pharmacy Operations, says.
“A lot of our health center facilities have a pharmacy within a mile. By being right inside the health center, we're going to save patients time and help to ensure they are getting their prescriptions filled."
The Ohio City Health Center has a MetroExpressCare, which is another important reason to have a pharmacy onsite.
"With acute care, some patients need to start taking prescriptions right away,” Mezinger says. “They can get their antibiotics or other medications filled right away, which could potentially help in resolving their medical issues sooner.”
The Ohio City Health Center – located at 4757 Lorain Ave. in Cleveland – opened in June 2020 in the Cletus Jeckering Family Health Center at Urban Community School. The center offers a variety of services such as primary and specialty care, pediatrics, OB/GYN, behavioral health as well as MetroExpressCare that provides non-emergency treatment for urgent care issues.
The pharmacy is open Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
You do not need to be a MetroHealth patient to use the new pharmacy. Just walk in, and we'll fill your prescriptions. Call 216-957-MEDS (6337) for more information or visit www.metrohealth.org/ohio-city.
