Trisha Rudisill, the Pharmacy's Lead Pharmacist, noted that "we increased the size of the pharmacy to over 900 square feet, which gives us plenty of room to grow. And, we drastically changed our workflow, which has increased our efficiency. We are filling more prescriptions, but have managed to keep our wait times to about 20 minutes."
In its last six weeks of operations at the Roosevelt Avenue location, the Healthy Community Pharmacy filled approximately 137 prescriptions per day. At the new location, the Pharmacy is filling an average of 170 prescriptions per day. The increase results from the accessibility of the Pharmacy and to its new design that incorporates a more efficient workflow.
