Medication Management Systems by Lionville 


The National Library of Medicine outlines five key stages in medication management. These are:

  1. Ordering/prescribing
  2. Transcribing and verifying
  3. Dispensing and delivering
  4. Administering
  5. Monitoring and reporting

It’s the stages of dispensing and delivering (3), and administering (4), along with storage that Forsyth Healthcare’s medication management product category is known for across Canada.  We’ve partnered with leading manufacturers of storage and productivity products that employ advanced materials and technology to ensure our clients and customers (you!) get the right equipment for your healthcare facility’s physicians, staff, and patients. When it comes to medication management systems, Metro and its Lionville series of medication carts are a standout. 

Below is a breakdown of why we believe Lionville carts are worthy of your consideration.

Why Hospitals, Clinics, and Healthcare Facilities in Canada Should Invest in Lionville Medication Management Carts for 2023-24 and Beyond

Lightweight Yet Tough Design

The lightweight aluminum construction of Lionville systems makes it easy for staff and handlers to effectively move and transport the carts safely and quickly, without sacrificing strength and stability. Lionville carts are finished with a scratch-resistant powder-coat finish, a polymer molded top, and a wrap-around base bumper with full-height corner bumpers.

Power-Packed Exchange System

Medication Management by Lionville

The Lionville cassette exchange system is a go-to for managing patient medications with ease. Cart drawers accommodate robotic clinic and pharmacy systems, a wide variety of unit dose packaging, multi-dose styles, bulk medications, and medical narcotics. Large patient drawers come in two widths (5-inches and 7.5-inches) and boast interchangeable clear face plates to hold identification tags. Meanwhile, divider channels permit drawers to be segmented. The distinguishing design has a  universal-fit, allowing clinics and hospitals to interchangeably use the cassettes throughout their entire fleet. 

Advanced Touchpad System

The Lionville touchpad system takes medication management to the next level through its three options: Basic, Advanced, and Advanced Wireless. The Advanced system is the most robust, featuring:

  • Up to 6,000 users
  • Backlit LCD screen
  • Controls up to 3 optional electronic-locking controlled substance drawers and auto-re-locking (more on security below)
  • Motion sensor to prevent cart from locking while in use
  • Proximity card reader capable
  • USB port for data exchange (PC)
  • Detailed activity reports
  • Optional software available for programming and audit reporting

Security is mission-critical in medication management systems. Lionville carts have security covered, with systems featuring a front access control panel with a key lock and a colour-coded re-lock handle. Lionville’s patented drawer grabber locking system provides peace of mind that patient drawers are locked even if they’re not closed completely. Optional security features include electronic keyless entry with or without Auto Relock in addition to keyed or keyless double lock for narcotics.

Custom Configurations

One size doesn’t fit all in the medical facility world, so cookie-cutter solutions for medication management simply won’t do. This is yet another reason why Lionville carts are an option to consider Systems come in a range of sizes, and each can be configured to account for patient requirements. Flexible design allows for a variety of user-defined options that can be integrated into the cart, like medical cup dispenser storage, glove box holders, wells, tilt outside bins, and concealed waste receptacles. Thanks to this great flexibility, Lionville carts are appropriate for all sorts of settings, from bedside application for just a few patients, all the way through to high-capacity scenarios to serve as the main medication storage hub.

Beyond their functional flexibility, Lionville medication management systems consider the small but important touches that private clinics often care about. For instance, drawer pulls come available in five colours to consider clinic decor, and to differentiate carts from others without having to read labels and tags.

Custom configuration is the final piece of the puzzle to build confidence that Lionville carts belong in your medical environment.
