Press release from Charles George VA Medical Center:
During the current conditions created by COVID-19, various Charles George VA Medical Center departments are finding innovative ways to safely meet the needs of the Veterans they serve.
Pharmacy employees recently implemented curbside service to make it easier for Veterans to obtain their medications without having to leave their vehicles and enter the medical center.
Pharmacy personnel first work with Veterans to determine if medications can be sent by overnight mail. If mail delivery is not an option, Veterans can drive to the facility and go to the designated pick-up area, which is the traffic circle between the main medical center and the Community Living Center.
From there, Veterans provide a Pharmacist with their information. They are then directed to a designated Pharmacy Curbside parking spot, where a Pharmacist or Pharmacy Technician delivers the medication.
Media interested in learning more about the Pharmacy Curbside Service, please contact Vance Janes, Charles George VA Medical Center Public Affairs Officer, at email@example.com.
