Pharmacy Services at Villa Maria Hospital are among the most innovative and comprehensive in greater Masaka (Uganda). Our pharmacy is trusted for delivering high-quality and authentic medicines. We have a robust team of highly qualified pharmacists and technicians who possess extensive knowledge about the medicines we dispense. Our pharmacists are trained to provide counseling to our patients, ensuring they receive the maximum therapeutic effect from their medicines, avoid any reactions or harmful effects, and clearly understand the potential side effects.
Our pharmacy program caters to patients visiting the hospital clinics and centers, as well as patients admitted into the hospital (inpatients). Our inpatient pharmacy service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our hospital pharmacy is a state-of-the-art facility equipped with a sterile intravenous solution preparation area and a separate cytotoxic drug preparation area. We are the leading hospital in Kalungu district providing centralized clinical services to our patients. This setup ensures that we have pharmacies located within the hospital premises, which helps in minimizing medication errors and streamlining our distribution process for greater efficiency.
Additionally, we have implemented various practices such as our computerized store data system and modified unit dose drug distribution to guarantee that medications delivered to our patients in the hospital wards are safe, correct, and administered at the right dosage.

In the pharmacy, we stock all essential medications necessary to fulfill our clients’ health needs, along with a variety of pharmaceutical supplies, including detergents, sundries, and other items. Medications are stored and controlled in the main drug store, from where they are retrieved and issued to user departments based on verified requisition forms.
