HILL AIR FORCE BASE – Hill Air Force Base personnel have an easier way to get the medication they need, thanks to a new pharmacy.
Earlier in July, the Hill Clinic started dispensing all prescription refills and process all off-base prescriptions (including those faxed in from off-base doctors) at the new 75th Medical Group Satellite Pharmacy, according to a release.
The satellite pharmacy is located in the Base Exchange, Bldg. 412, 5845 E Ave.
The Hill Clinic Pharmacy will remain open, but primarily serve patients seeing medical providers daily in the clinic.
"Our customers will see decreased wait times for new prescription refills, currently 22 minutes, and an improved overall customer experience with six additional service windows," said Maj. Dave Jarnot, the 75th Medical Group Pharmacy Flight commander. "Our satellite pharmacy will double our prescription processing capability to more than 600,000 prescriptions annually, all at zero out-of-pocket cost to the individual."
The satellite pharmacy is the result of a partnership agreement between the 75th Medical Group, which manages and staffs the Hill Clinic, and the Army and Air Force Exchange Service, which manages the Base Exchange, according to the release.
"Best of all, our customers win - with faster refill times and lower costs for prescriptions," Major Jarnot said in the release.
