Lab and Pharmacy Storage Cabinets

Hamilton Sorter has been in the business of manufacturing casework for over 45 years and Midwest Storage Solutions is a dealer of their fantastic Modular Casework for Pharmacy Applications. Hamilton Sorter introduced their robust Pharmacy casework system 15 years ago.  It consists of high-quality storage and healthcare grade free-standing cabinetry built specifically for the pharmaceutical environment.  Our pharmacy-specific line is based directly on numerous conversations with our pharmacy partners who thoroughly understand the challenges, work process pressures and regulations of today’s pharmacy setting. In addition to our best-in-class pharmacy line, Hamilton Sorter, as always, can design and manufacture custom items based on each specific department's needs.  Midwest Storage Solutions, Inc. will guide you every step of the way, providing 3D renderings and equipment planning at NO Cost!

In the unit dose fill station, flat and gravity feed drawers in base cabinets coupled with slanted wall shelves can put hundreds of medications and supplies at your fingertips. Gravity feed drawers need only be opened to refill..  Our modular partitions can be constructed to specific heights and pre-wired in the field if desired..  Our cabinet's doors and drawer fronts can be High Pressure Laminate (HPL) or seamlessly vinyl-wrapped with Thermofoil to eliminate crevices where bacteria might grow. Midwest Storage Solutions can also provide removable drawer inserts with adjustable dividers and custom configurations to organize supplies. 

Upper shelves can be adjusted to five different positions. The shelves house a built-in slot that holds an optional flat retainer to prevent product from slipping at extreme angles.  Our overhead cabinets and sloped storage shelves are completely modular and are supported by a leveled hanger-rail.   

Midwest Storage Solutions, Inc. understands that a functional pharmacy design requires detailed planning. We begin by establishing a preliminary design that comes from a clear understanding of your workplace needs. We can work with your direct input or in concert with architects or other consultants to help you think through and map-out a plan for optimal workflow efficiency and maximum storage and growth potential. 

Once a preliminary direction is agreed upon, our In-House CAD department can transform ideas into practical design. At this point we will determine which of hundreds of standard modules best fits your plans and identify where a special need requires custom design.

We plan for the quality, integrity and appropriateness of each individual component and ultimately; the completed project!  Our growing list of satisfied Pharmacy Clients include: Fremont Area Medical Center, The Buffett Cancer Center, Bellevue Medical Center, Mary Lanning Hospital, West Point Hospital, 



After extensive consultation with pharmacy directors and pharm design professionals, Hamilton Sorter has introduced a robust system of comprehensive storage and distribution modular and freestanding casework built specifically for the pharmaceutical environment. I couldn’t be more excited! Hamilton Sorter has been in the business of manufacturing casework for over 45 years and now we can offer that experience to pharmacy directors across the country. Our pharmacy-specific line is based directly on numerous conversations with our pharmacy partners who thoroughly understand the challenges, work process pressures and regulations of today’s pharmacy setting. In addition to our vast best-in-class pharmacy line, Hamilton Sorter, as always, can design and manufacture custom items.

Pharmacy casework, medication dispensing cabinets, and pharmacy storage shelving is pre-configured and shipped to you ready to install. Modular components allow you to reconfigure or reuse the casework at any time and requires no modifications or construction to your building.

Inpatient Pharmacy:

With Spacesaver pharmaceutical storage systems you can have all of your most important medications at your fingertips.  Spacesaver’s FrameWRX storage system features adjustable rails & shelves that will accommodate hanging bins of various sizes for storing anything from bulk IV fluids, to oral or injectable medications and unit-dose medication packages.

Flexible Spacesaver design options help even the tightest of pharmacy & lab work areas get the most out of their available floor space. Our FrameWRX-HD system features a modular floor & rail platform that sits on top of the existing floor. The shelving in the rear remains stationary while the modular shelving carriages in the front slide left-to-right to allow access to the rear pharmacy shelving cabinet sections.  FrameWRX-HD features all the same functionality but quickly doubles the storage capacity when compared to conventional stationary wire shelving or built-in casework shelving.  By accommodating various package sizes and allowing for color-coded labeling, our Spacesaver products can create a completely organized system of stocking & storing products.  Furthermore, look-alike drug names and packaging that are potentially problematic; are stored separately and segregated accordingly (e.g. not alphabetical).

Retail Pharmacy:

Our Spacesaver High-Density mobile shelving systems are the perfect solution for retail pharmacy spaces that are growing, short on space, or needing additional shelving space for over-the-counter medications & prescriptions.  Most retail pharmacy spaces are using conventional, stationary shelving or millwork shelves that are not flexible or adjustable.  More importantly, there is wasted aisle space between each row of stationary of pharmacy storage cabinets  that is highly valuable and underutilized.  Compact shelving will turn that wasted aisle space into productive shelving space and double-your storage capacity instantly.  For those pharmacy techs who are concerned about creating a “bottleneck” by installing Spacesaver shelving, our shelving healthcare solution specialists in Nebraska & Iowa can visit with you in person and discuss using features like our “Binfront” shelving design which allows the most commonly used medications to be stored in the front-face of the system so that staff doesn’t have to continuously move the shelving back & forth to access that drug.
