Powell Valley Healthcare would like to invite the community to a grand opening celebration for its new retail pharmacy. The event takes place on Thursday, September 19 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. in the front lobby of the hospital. PVHC volunteers will be serving hamburgers and hot dogs and there will be a drawing for a chance to win some fun prizes.

The new retail pharmacy, located in the front entrance of the hospital, opened August 12. It features convenient drop-off and pick-up windows in the lobby as well as a drive-up window just west of the front entrance. The drive-up provides a convenient and safe means of picking up medications, especially during winter months when it is bitter cold outside and there is snow and ice on the ground. Pharmacy hours are 8:30 am to 6:30 pm Monday through Friday and 8:30 am to 3:00 pm on Saturdays. “We look forward to making it as convenient as possible for patients to get needed medications,” said Steven Hultgren, pharmacy director.

The pharmacy is a 340B drug pricing program participant, which makes it eligible for providing significant discounts to patients who have no insurance for prescription medications. If you are struggling to afford needed medications, PVHC Pharmacy may be able to help you.
