Earlier this month, the new Womack Army Medical Center Pharmacy Annex located in front of the mini-mall on Reilly Road opened its doors to provide refill prescription services to the Fort Bragg community.

Last week, they opened up their drive-thru for refills that had already been called in or requested using TRICARE Online.

This week, the Pharmacy Annex began filling hard copy and electronic prescriptions.

The facility’s location was deliberately chosen to give patients the option of running errands or grabbing lunch while waiting for their prescriptions.

“The new pharmacy will improve efficiency by providing everything right there at one location,” said Col. Jorge Carrillo, chief, Department of Pharmacy, WAMC. “You can check-in for your electronic prescription or drop off your hard copy then go to the mini-mall for a cup of coffee or to the Iron Mike for lunch. When you come back, your prescription will be ready for you.”

WAMC will celebrate the official opening of the new facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, Feb. 9 at 10 a.m.
