New Central Pharmacy Services Center Set to Open, Streamline Prescription Fulfillment and Improve Access to Specialty Medications in Oldham County

The new Central Pharmacy Services Center at Baptist Health in Oldham County is set to open, with the goal of improving access to specialty medications and reducing medication prices. The $40 million facility, located at 1051 New Moody Lane, is expected to create 200 new jobs and streamline prescription fulfillment processes through the use of robotic technology that can fill 14,000 prescriptions in a 10-hour shift.

The facility spans over 102,000 square feet and will also provide education and certification opportunities for pharmacy technician students at the Arvin Education Center. Oldham County Schools Superintendent Jason Radford expressed his optimism about the benefits that this facility will bring to students in the biomedical sciences pathway, seeing it as a potential stepping stone for those interested in pharmaceutical sciences.

Center fulfillment manager Amanda Shelly highlighted that patients will save money through simplified prescription processes such as receiving medications by mail. The Center will also expedite medication delivery for cancer and rheumatology patients, reducing the time they have to wait for treatment. Shelly emphasized that this approach minimizes human interaction in the medication process, streamlining operations and ensuring accurate and efficient prescription fulfillment.

Patients across the state can benefit from the services offered by the Central Pharmacy Services Center, with the option to transfer existing prescriptions at any time. Interested individuals can contact the call center at 502-565-0000 to explore the services available to them at the new facility.
