Dr. Arif Muslim, left, chair of St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, State Sen. William Larkin, Shrilekha Tolat, pharmacy director, Allan E. Atzrott, hospoital president and CEO, William Kaplan, and the Rev. Coleman Briggs gather in the new 2,500-square-foot pharmacy, which includes several advanced technologies, including IV admixture and chemotherapy equipped clean rooms, with monitored air quality and pressure. A glove box for compounding prescriptions is also available in the new pharmacy, allowing for less preparation time and eliminating direct contact between prescriptions and the pharmacist.
