CUMMINGTON — Swift River, a member of the Addiction Campuses treatment centers, announced the opening of a new pharmacy. The construction project began in 2019 and is expected to be completed this month.
Swift River has teamed up with Keiter Builders Inc. based in Florence, and Kuhn Riddle Architects of Amherst to lead in the design and construction of a new, 1,690-square-foot addition. The addition is a B-use occupancy including a nurse’s station, patient-service portals, exam rooms, and a pharmacy for the storage and dispensing of narcotic addition-treatment substances. The project is regulated by the Drug Enforcement Agency and meets relevant standards, including an alarm system, security cameras, motion and sound detectors, and limited key-access entry points.
“It’s been fantastic working with Keiter Builders,” Swift River CEO Matt Love said. “The team from Keiter has been professional, accommodating, and responsive to our needs during the construction project. The pharmacy will allow Swift River to expand medication-assisted treatment options to patients in a safe, secure location as well as expand the nurses station for patients in our detox unit. We are excited about this addition of a new pharmacy as well as the new relationship we’re establishing with Keiter Builders.”
