CHICAGO, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Hamilton Park Health Care Facility, a skilled nursing facility in Jersey City, New Jersey, has contracted with Millennium Pharmacy Systems for pharmacy services to both their Skilled Nursing and Assisted Living residents.
Traditional pharmacy services in the nursing homes environment require a time-consuming manual process of managing medications.

Additionally, Millennium provides unique 3- and 4-day packaging designed to reduce medication waste from frequently changed or discontinued prescriptions common to nursing facilities. Millennium will also install an on-site, secure, medication cabinet to give Hamilton Park nurses immediate access to medications needed for late night admissions and emergencies. Hamilton Park will implement Millennium's proprietary software system using laptops attached to medication carts and eliminate paper processing of documentation.

Millennium Pharmacy Systems services the entire state of
