Walgreens to Offer Outpatient Pharmacy Services at Eisenhower

Eisenhower Medical Center announced it has brought Walgreens outpatient pharmacy services to the main Eisenhower campus in Rancho Mirage. The outpatient pharmacy, located in the Kiewit Building, is now owned and operated by Walgreens.

“Walgreens brings a rich history of trusted pharmacy services, while also giving our patients the ability to pick up their medications right at the Medical Center in addition to any Walgreens pharmacy in the Valley or throughout the U.S.,” says Lyle Matthews, Pharm.D., MAM, Director, Pharmacy Services, Eisenhower Medical Center. “As a stand alone pharmacy, Eisenhower Outpatient Pharmacy has provided great convenience to Rancho Mirage campus patients. However, with new clinics in La Quinta and Palm Springs, and many of our patients living or traveling elsewhere periodically, we recognized the need to bring greater access to meet our patients’ prescription needs. Together, Walgreens and Eisenhower Medical Center offer high quality pharmacy services with the focus on prevention and wellness that both organizations value.”

“Walgreens has been serving the Southern California community with health and daily living resources for more than a decade, and with the addition of this pharmacy at Eisenhower Medical Center, we look forward to bringing these services closer to patients while providing the personalized care they need to get, stay and live well,” says Walgreens market vice president Matt Sesto.

Existing Eisenhower outpatient pharmacy customers will continue to find their prescriptions available at the Kiewit Building location when Walgreens begins its operation of the pharmacy on November 12.
