For the convenience of our patient families, when you are preparing for discharge from Nicklaus Children's Hospital, the Publix Pharmacy can fill and deliver all of the needed prescriptions right to your child’s room. That way, when it’s time to leave the hospital, you’ll have all the medications your child needs to continue care, and you can get back home as quickly and easily as possible.
Once you’re discharged home, a Publix pharmacist will call you 72 hours after discharge to see how your child is feeling, and to answer any questions you may have about the prescribed medication regimen. When it’s time for your child’s next refill, simply visit any of our Publix pharmacies. Their records are in our system, making the transition simple.
