About The General Apothecary

The General Apothecary is an outpatient pharmacy that provides a convenient place where patients at Rochester General Hospital can have initial prescriptions filled before leaving the Hospital.

Because of its non-profit status, the General Apothecary is licensed only to serve:

  • Patients who are being discharged after an inpatient stay at Rochester General Hospital. The General Apothecary can fill initial prescriptions only for these patients; refills must be obtained elsewhere (usually a neighborhood pharmacy near the patient's home)
  • Patients who are leaving the hospital after receiving outpatient care (e.g., in the Emergency Department, Cancer Center, Outpatient Department, Pediatric Care Center, Family Health Center, The Women's Center or Dental Clinic)
  • Employees, volunteers and retirees of Rochester General Health System

The General Apothecary will prepare compounds in suspension for pediatric patients. The pharmacy also stocks some over-the-counter medications as well as diabetic supplies and other items found at a neighborhood pharmacy.
