Publix Pharmacy and Beaufort Memorial Hospital (BMH) have joined forces to expand health care services for residents of South Carolina’s Beaufort County.

The partnership includes in-hospital delivery of patient prescriptions from a nearby Publix, along with in-store telehealth centers at two of the grocer’s stores.

“Patients are looking for more convenient access to health care, whether it’s treatment for non-emergency medical conditions or easier transitions from hospital to home,” noted Dain Rusk, VP of pharmacy at Lakeland, Fla.-based Publix Super Markets. “This collaboration with Beaufort Memorial Hospital will provide residents of the Beaufort community with a medical care option where they shop and eliminate an extra errand for patients leaving the hospital.”
