For Patients

Our Pharmacies

Patients choose our pharmacies for all the features of a retail pharmacy plus the benefits of providers who are familiar with their condition. Our pharmacies are located throughout the hospital and at two convenient locations in Coralville and Riverside. Our highly trained pharmacists explain your medications and help you with needed over-the-counter supplies.
