St. John's Unveils New Lobby and Pharmacy

The hospital unveiled its new lobby to the public at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Nov. 22.

The lobby includes an outpatient pharmacy, cafe and gift shop, and reflection room and has a modern design with LED lighting, a visitor seating lounge, and an iPad section for visitors to view their medical history and schedule appointments. There is also a donor wall with the names of those who donate to the hospital.

“We may have been around over 110 years, but with the investments we’ve made to enhance the quality of care our patients receive and investments in improving our physical spaces and opening medial practices outside the hospital walls and into our community, it is as if we are a new hospital,” said Jerry Walsh, chief executive officer of SJEH.

“This new lobby is symbolic of the fact that we are listening to the public regarding what medical services are wanted and needed, and we are committed to providing exceptional care,” Walsh added.

The newly added outpatient pharmacy allows patients and visitors to pick up their prescriptions before they leave the hospital, and they have a delivery option. This outpatient pharmacy has competitive pricing and discounts, with access to notfor-profit programs that help save money on prescription medications. Additionally, the pharmacy is open to anyone, even those who are not patients at St. John’s.

The renovations are a part of SJEH’s continuing efforts to update their 257-bed hospital that serves Far Rockaway and the Five Towns area.
