Publix Super Markets is collaborating with Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, part of Miami Children’s Health System, to enhance and expand outpatient retail pharmacy services on the hospital’s main campus in Miami. The newly enhanced pharmacy, which opened Monday, offers specialized convenience to patients and their families, visitors, guests and health system employees on an outpatient basis.

“We are delighted to have forged a relationship with Publix, a leader in exceptional customer service, to enhance outpatient pharmacy services at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. It is a testament to our ongoing mission to provide the best services to the patients and families in our care,” said Armando Llechu, VP of clinical operations for Miami Children’s Health System.

“Publix Pharmacies have been dedicated to the health and wellness needs of our customers and their families,” said Fred Ottolino, VP of pharmacy operations at Publix. “The opportunity to bring our level of customer care to patients of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital not only allows us to meet their immediate needs, but also to build long-term relationships with our customers as they return home.”

Publix says the pharmacy at Nicklaus Children’s will bring many enhancements to patients and guests, including:

• Expanded weekday hours and new weekend hours;

• Access to specialty medications for patients and employees;

• Expanded bedside delivery to the hospital’s inpatient units, the Pediatric Care Center and the Emergency Department;

• Access to refills at any Publix pharmacy location; and
