Our mission in the Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare Department of Pharmacy is to be the leader in providing pharmaceutical care to its patients through safe, rational, cost-effective and ethical drug therapy. Pharmaceutical care is provided through an integrated model using Patient Care Area Pharmacists (PCAP) and satellite pharmacies in the areas of Oncology, Solid Organ Transplant, Cardiology, Adult Intensive Care, Health System Pharmacy Administration, Adult Medicine, Surgery, and Emergency Medicine. Clinical pharmacy services address patient needs in the Medicine Teaching Practice Clinic, and distributive services are provided in the Outpatient Pharmacy.
