Huntington, W.Va. – Marshall Health will officially open the doors to a new retail pharmacy in the Erma Ora Byrd Clinical Center (BCC), 1249 15th St., on the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine’s health sciences campus during a grand opening celebration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday, July 1.
In addition to prescription services, Marshall Pharmacy offers injectables, over-the-counter items, diabetic supplies and limited compounded products. Services also include online prescription refills and transfers, medications delivered by mail and a smartphone app.
The BCC pharmacy, located on the second floor of the facility, is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. To contact the pharmacy, call 304-696-5000.
“Marshall Health is dedicated to providing comprehensive health care services to our patients, employees and community as a whole,” said Beth Hammers, executive director of Marshall Health. “We are extremely pleased to offer this new location.”
“It’s one-stop shopping,” said Brian Gallagher, director of pharmacy services for Marshall Health. “In one visit, patients can see their physician, get their prescriptions filled, and have their refill prescriptions from other pharmacies filled. Plus, they can speak in person with a Marshall pharmacist about their medicine in the same visit.”
Parking for the pharmacy is available at both locations for picking up your prescriptions quickly and easily. Marshall’s retail pharmacies are a joint effort among Marshall Health and the Schools of Medicine and Pharmacy at Marshall University. The new BCC pharmacy is the second Marshall Pharmacy location. Marshall Health opened the first pharmacy in the Marshall University Medical Center in August 2014.
