Since 2015, Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Pharmacy at the Parkview Center
has been open to the public. They are now expanding their outpatient services
with extended hours and the addition of a new manager. Pharmacist Melynni
Yarber recently joined the medical staff at OMC Outpatient Pharmacy, bringing
her over 17 years of experience to the OMC Pharmacy team.
Previously Yarber worked for the Walmart Pharmacy in West Plains for 17
years. A West Plains High School graduate, she went to work right out
of high school as a Pharmacy Tech with OMC. Yarber found that she enjoyed
the work, and at the encouragement of an OMC Pharmacist, she decided to
attend pharmacy school. She received both her undergraduate and pharmacy
degrees from St. Louis College of Pharmacy.
“We are very excited to welcome Melynni to OMC,” said Katie
Mahan, Pharmacist and Director, OMC Outpatient Pharmacy. “She brings
a great attitude of teamwork, a wealth of experience, and some great ideas
for further enhancements to better meet the needs of our community.”
A native of Caulfield, Yarber grew up on her parents’ dairy farm,
where they still reside. Currently, she lives in Moody with her husband
and their three children. With a large extended family nearby, they enjoy
family get-togethers, as well as fishing and camping.
“I enjoy the hometown atmosphere and the personalized service that
we can provide to our patients at OMC,” says Yarber. “I’m
excited about the opportunity to form better relationships with our patients
and the sense of community that comes from being a part of OMC.”
OMC Pharmacy, located at 1211 Porter Wagoner Blvd, in the Parkway Center,
Suite 18, offers complete prescription services as well as many over-the-counter
items. OMC Pharmacy accepts all major insurance plans and offers competitive
prices for non-insured patients. The OMC Pharmacy also helps patients
locate manufacturer coupons, or discount prescription program pricing,
to assist in brand-name prescription costs when available.
OMC pharmacists and technicians are available to answer medication questions
and provide over-the-counter medication recommendations. For patients
being discharged from the hospital, prescriptions can be delivered bedside.
With new extended hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday
from 8 a.m. to Noon, the OMC Pharmacy will be happy to fill new prescriptions
or transfer your prescriptions for you. Please visit them or call 417-256-1793.
