A child’s growing body often responds to drug therapy differently than an adult’s would. At Dayton Children’s, our pediatric pharmacists have specialized training which allows them to work with your child’s doctor to help ensure the safe and effective use of medication in the tiniest babies all the way up to fully grown young adults.
Our team of pharmacists takes pride in making sure parents fully understand their child’s home medication regimen when they are discharged from the hospital.
We have pharmacies at our main campus and south campus, so you can fill your child's prescription while here for your visit. Families having prescriptions filled at the outpatient pharmacy need to bring an insurance card to have charges billed to their insurance company. Otherwise, payment is needed at the time of services. The pharmacy accepts cash, checks, VISA or MasterCard.

The Dayton Children’s specialty pharmacy is here to help our patients manage their chronic disease such as cancer, cystic fibrosis, growth hormone deficiences and seizure disorders. As a patient of Dayton Children’s specialty pharmacy, our priority is helping you live better and stay healthy.
Specialty pharmacies are different from traditional pharmacies because specialty medications are more complex and may not be available from your local pharmacy, or may require additional monitoring to provide the full benefit of their treatment.
