At Wayne UNC Health Care, we are committed to providing quality health care for our patients. Our commitment to you extends through your path to recovery by providing care that goes beyond your stay at Wayne UNC.

Wayne UNC Health Care’s ReadyMeds program provides bedside delivery of your prescription medications at discharge so you have the correct medications in hand before you leave the hospital.

Why Choose ReadyMeds?

ReadyMeds will deliver your medications to you before you leave, saving you a timely trip to an outside pharmacy.

  • We will talk with your doctor about any prescription related concerns before you leave.
  • You will know the price of all your medications before you leave.
  • We can help find lower cost alternatives for costly medication or medication not covered by your insurance. We offer lower prices on our selection of over-the-counter medication, too.

ReadyMeds provides a stress-free transition from the hospital to your home by:

  • Making sure you receive the necessary antibiotics and medications to control pain before you leave the hospital.
  • Reducing your dependency on others to pick up medications.
  • Eliminating the need to stop at the pharmacy on the way home.

Hours of Operation

We will deliver your prescribed medications to your hospital room:

7:00 am to 4:00 pm

Payment Options for Medications

Just like retail pharmacies, we will need your insurance information to provide you with your co-pay information. We accept check and credit/debit cards (Visa, Mastercard).

If you are interested in having your medications delivered to your bedside before you go home, please talk to your care team or call 919-731-6801.
