Celebrating the renewal of the Health Care Centre Pharmacy.

After 28 years in service, Grand River Hospital's retail pharmacy was due for a renovation.

With that renovation project complete, GRH has officially re-opened the Health Care Centre Pharmacy in the main lobby of the KW Campus.

The renovation to the retail pharmacy has nearly tripled the amount of retail space and products available to patients and families. New services include but are not limited to:

  • Home health care aids to support patients who are returning home after surgery;
  • A wide range of compression stockings for patients following surgery, and members of the hospital community who must stand throughout the day; and 
  • A vastly-expanded baby care section, tailored to the needs of the the 4,100 babies born at GRH every year.

The renovation is just the latest in expansions for the retail pharmacy. In recent years, the hospital launched a "Meds to Beds" program to bring prescriptions and supplies to right to patients' rooms as they've returned home. In 2016, GRH opened a satellite location of the retail pharmacy in the hospital's cancer centre, supporting patients in their on-going treatments.

We invite you to visit the renewed Health Care Centre Pharmacy. The pharmacy is open from Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

GRH owns and operates Health Care Centre Pharmacy. The pharmacy’s operations provide more than $1 million a year in net revenue to support patient care at GRH.
