Inpatient Pharmacy

The Inpatient Pharmacy at Teton Valley Health Care provides service to all areas of the hospital including inpatients, emergency department, surgical services, and the infusion center.

Our pharmacists work closely with all of our providers to ensure the hospital protocols and guidelines are safe and up to date. The pharmacists are a double check on all medication related administration to ensure our patients are safe and our staff has a safe facility to practice in.

Exceptional Pharmaceutical Care

Our pharmacy staff works side by side with our fellow healthcare providers creating an interdisciplinary team approach to patient care. Our goal is to provide superior medication management to the patients we serve, with patient safety being the core goal of the pharmacy department.
