Community Pharmacy, located at Iowa Specialty Hospital—Clarion, is an important piece of our healthcare team and of the business community. In addition to dispensing medication, our pharmacists can give you clinical and lifestyle advice on how to become healthier. This includes advice and information on how to stop smoking, reduce high blood pressure, lose weight, and improve your diet.
In addition, we have designated pharmacists who work directly with our hospital patients. They provide medication counseling before patients are discharged so they understand how to take their medicines correctly once they return to their homes. Our pharmacists are also a part of the patient rounding team for the best outcomes for our inpatients.

Community Pharmacy participates in most Medicare Part D prescription drug plans. Please call us if you have both Medicaid and Medicare and have been assigned to a new drug plan. We can help you decide if it is the right plan for you.
Note: Please plan ahead for prescription refill requests. Refills cannot be called in to your provider after office hours or on weekends.
For your convenience we offer different options to complete your refill requests: in-person, by phone or fax, and with our convenient mobile app.
INR clinics are available at our Belmond and Clarion campuses for individuals needing assistance in monitoring their INR numbers related to blood thinning medications.
INR stands for International Normalized Ratio. Our pharmacists measure how long it takes for a patient's blood to clot. This test ensures that patients are receiving the dosage of blood thinner, such as Coumadin or Warfarin, that is right for them. Patients must call their family medicine provider to make an appointment for the INR clinic.
