Pharmacy services consolidated to satellite pharmacy
The main outpatient pharmacy at Mike O'Callaghan Federal Medical Center is undergoing reconstruction and has moved operations to the satellite pharmacy. Construction is expected to be completed in the spring of 2016. The new location, Bldg. 340, is located next to the Information, Tickets and Travel office, and across the parking lot from the base theater. Patients who see a provider at the medical center and have prescriptions entered at their appointment will still be able to check-in at the hospital pharmacy, but will need to pick up the completed prescriptions at the satellite pharmacy. To have prescriptions filled that aren't entered at the medical center from an appointment, visit the satellite pharmacy to have the prescription filled. The satellite pharmacy drive-thru will only be available for picking up new or refilled prescriptions. Checking in or dropping off prescriptions must be completed inside. The procedures for getting a refill will not change. To have prescriptions filled, call 702-652-5359.
