The newly renovated Womack Army Medical Center North Post Exchange Pharmacy, also known as the PX Pharmacy, has reopened its doors for the processing of electronic and paper prescriptions from civilian providers.
Individuals may drop off their prescriptions while they shop in the PX or grab a quick meal at the food court.
Both long-time patrons of the PX Pharmacy and the WAMC Pharmacy staff are excited for the reopening and the return of the pharmacy that once was the only Womack satellite pharmacy on Fort Bragg.
The newly renovated pharmacy features state-of-the-art technology and is now the eighth pharmacy on Fort Bragg and the 11th pharmacy in the Womack network to service our military community.
Patrons of the North Post PX have been pleasantly surprised to find the pharmacy open again and extremely happy to see some familiar faces back at work in the PX Pharmacy.
David McKnight, who was a pharmacist at the PX Pharmacy when it closed in October 2015, is at work there again and is enjoying seeing both the former PX patrons and many new customers that have arrived at Fort Bragg since the pharmacy closed.
“Every day we see a familiar face that is excited to see that we are back and every day we meet a new face that is pleased with the service that we provide,” said McKnight. “It is rewarding as a pharmacist to make a difference in our patients’ lives.”
In the near future, the pharmacy will also be an option as a pickup site for mandatory call-in refills and will have the capability to notify patients by text alerts when their medications are ready for pick up, according to Col. Jorge Carrillo, the WAMC pharmacy chief.
Carrillo said he is equally excited to offer military families an additional option to meet their pharmacy needs and shift some of the workload away from the busier pharmacy sites.
The PX Pharmacy operates from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and closes for lunch from 1 to 2 p.m. daily.
