    Orange Regional Medical Center
  • Overview

    Orange Regional Medical Center (ORMC), is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization. Formed by the merger of Arden Hill Hospital and Horton Medical Center, Orange Regional moved the two campuses into a new, single-site, state-of-the-art facility on August 5, 2011. At that time, it was the first new hospital built in New York State in over 20 years. Orange Regional features seven floors of state-of-the-art technology and provides 383 beds and employs over 2,400 healthcare professionals. Most recently, Orange Regional opened a new cancer center and a new five-story Outpatient Services building on the main campus, featuring Orange Regional Medical Group with primary care and specialty physicians, urgent care, outpatient surgical and diagnostic services and more. Orange Regional is a designated Magnet hospital recognizing excellence in Nursing. Only 6 percent of hospitals nation-wide are designated by the Magnet Recognition Program. Also, Orange Regional’s Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system has achieved Stage 7; the highest level on HIMSS Analytics’ EMR adoption model which is used to track EMR progress at hospitals and health systems. Only 4.2 percent of the more than 5,400 U.S. hospitals received the Stage 7 Award. Orange Regional has also been named among the 100 best Hospitals nationally for cardiac intervention by Healthgrades.



    In collaboration with physicians and other healthcare professionals the pharmacist is directly and indirectly involved in the care of the patient with regards to the prescribing, preparation, dispensing, administering and monitoring of medications. The pharmacist verifies, reviews, interprets, and processes physician orders, screening them for accuracy, allergies, food-drug interactions, drug-drug interactions, and monitors lab values as needed for potential interactions and for necessary dosing adjustments. The pharmacist also reviews, interprets, and processes patient assessment information, which includes past medical history, current medication history, pregnancy/lactation status, allergies, and any other information pertinent to the care of the patients. As regulatory standards change over time the pharmacist will meet the needs of these new requirements as they become the standard of the profession. Staff pharmacists supervise and direct support personnel.
