Director of Pharmacy Operations Steve Armatas said the size of the staff and physical space haven't changed in 40 years.

"Although we've had some equipment upgrades, it hasn't kept up with demand."
Workload has increased significantly in the last five years because the average number of medications each patient takes has risen. "Pharmacists essentially became data entry personnel because the law requires them to enter all orders," Armatas said.
