Hospice patients in need of more acute care are able to receive it there, with a skilled staff available to render aid and support anytime, day or night. The Cornerstone Hospice Care Center at Orlando Health can also assist with symptom management or special educational needs. Sometimes this additional attention may be necessary to ensure a smooth transition to another stage of care — home, long-term care or an assisted living facility. The Care Center has special accommodations for its patients’ family members and visitors, thanks to a dedicated family room — a comfortable place where they can relax and have a cup of coffee, share a meal or watch TV, and still be close to their loved one. Just down the hall, a reflection room with dim lighting and a beautiful stained-glass window is an intimate spot for quiet meditation or prayer should it be needed.

Olympia Compounding Pharmacy is a national leader in compounded medications. Olympia opened a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility in June 2014. This new facility is also registered as a Food and Drug Administration outsourcing facility. As one of only a few outsourcing facilities in the state, Olympia can provide patient-specific prescriptions as well as “office use” medications for physician offices, clinics and hospitals. The Compounding Quality Act, which was signed into law in November 2013, stipulates that only an FDA-registered outsourcing facility can provide “office use” medications. Outsourcing facilities are held to a much higher standard of operation than traditional compounding pharmacies. The pharmacists at Olympia have more than 30 years of experience in bringing patients high-quality medications and excellent customer service. Patients can call to receive a free, personal consultation about any of their specialty medications. Because one size does not always fit all, Olympia’s experts consult with patients every day and help develop personalized, custom regimens. Olympia is a national leader in women’s health and bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical means the hormones that are used are an exact molecular match to hormones produced by the body. This is a safe, effective way to bring a woman’s body back into hormonal balance. Balanced hormones help women of all ages look and feel younger, stay slimmer and have more energy. Men’s health is another Olympia specialty. As men grow older, they may experience one or more age-related symptoms, such as low testosterone or erectile dysfunction. These conditions are easily correctable with proper treatment, and Olympia’s staff has the necessary expertise. In addition, being overweight affects men and women of all ages, but there is hope. Medical weight loss is a safe, effective way to lose weight. With medications like HCG and Sermorelin, tremendous success is being enjoyed by many. Olympia has the largest lyophilization facility in the eastern U.S., allowing HCG and Sermorelin to be compounded on-site, making it very cost-effective and high-quality. The pharmacy compounds B-12, vitamin B complex and fat-burning injections; topical medications such as pain, wound and bleaching creams; and other dermatologic treatments. The pharmacy also compounds small-animal medications. These compounds offer a safe, effective, easy-to-administer, inexpensive way for pets to get the medications they need. Olympia Pharmacy is conveniently located at the intersection of Turkey Lake and Conroy-Windermere roads, and next-business-day shipping is offered throughout all of Central Florida.
