The Weed Army Community Hospital (WACH) Outpatient Pharmacy, located in the Dr. Mary E. Walker Clinic, provides pharmaceutical care services for Active Duty and Retired Service Members, their Dependants, and other authorized beneficiaries. Prescriptions may be picked up from 0830-1700 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday; 0830-1200 on Thursday. The pharmacy is closed on Thursday afternoons for training and administrative duties.
To be served, you must draw a number from the pharmacy ticket dispenser located at the far end of the waiting area. Please wait in the waiting area, until your number is called. The area in front of the pharmacy is a safety and patient confidentiality zone. Waiting for prescriptions in front of the pharmacy is not authorized. Active Duty Service Members in uniform always have priority.
Due to new software upgrades resulting in safer dispensing practices of prescriptions, patients are encouraged to utilize the automated prescription refill line (760-380-3127). Note: Walk-up refills wait time has increased due to new software parameters.
Prescription refills called in prior to 0600 will be ready for pick-up at 1000 the same business day. Prescription refills not picked-up after 14 days from the scheduled pick-up date will be returned to stock and need to be reordered. If you have difficulties calling-in your refills due to a misplaced prescription number or the system tells you that you are calling in too early, contact the pharmacy we will assist you.
Thank you for you cooperation. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Drugs Carried by the Pharmacy
The Outpatient Pharmacy has a limited formulary (medications the pharmacy carries). Due to cost restraints and the small size of the pharmacy, the pharmacy cannot carry every drug available on the market. The WACH Outpatient Pharmacy Formulary is available to yourself and your provider so to better plan your care with our pharmacy.
A prescription written by Providers Outside of WACH
The pharmacy honors written prescriptions from outside provides, if the drug is on the WACH formulary. Prescriptions may NOT be called in or faxed to the pharmacy. The pharmacy reserves the right to modify your prescription to meet, Department of the Army and WACH regulations and policies.
