Mountain City Home Pharmacy

Mountain City Home Pharmacy serves patients being discharged from UPMC Altoona.

Skip the pharmacy line. Getting prescriptions has never been easier.

With UPMC Rx Express, neither you nor your patients will forget to stop at the drug store on the way home. Use Mountain City Home Pharmacy, located in Building G, to get your patient’s medicine before they leave the hospital. Patients can go home directly after their hospital visit without having to stop and pick-up their prescriptions.

UPMC Rx Express also gives patients and families an opportunity to talk with a pharmacist about medication side effects and other questions.

Education paired with convenient access to medications supports a seamless care transition. When patients are discharged with medications in-hand, we are supporting their successful healing and recovery and working to prevent unnecessary hospital readmissions.

Mountain City Home Pharmacy is a UPMC pharmacy and part of RX Partners. In addition to providing discharge medications to patients leaving UPMC Altoona, Mountain City offers services to long term care facilities, hospice patients, infusion patients and clinics.
