Fewer trips to the pharmacy means more time can be spent with your loved one when you allow Ranier's to fill prescriptions for your entire family (including pets!) as well the hospice patient's non-hospice meds.
By having all of the hospice patient’s prescriptions filled at one pharmacy, it allows for a more thorough and extensive drug interaction screening and better medication management.
Ranier’s Food Pantrysaves trips to the grocery store and allows more time with your family. When you order your prescription refills, by phone or online , let us know which food pantry items you would like us to deliver with your medication.
Free delivery is especially advantageous during inclement weather.
