NRMC opened its first retail Pharmacy April 4 in the Multispecialty Clinic on the corner of Keyser Avenue and Bienville.

The drive-through pharmacy now has hours matching the NRMC Walk-in Clinic, 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Especially beneficial for NRMC patients, the on site service will ensure prescriptions are filled quickly. Whether leaving a doctor’s office, discharging from the hospital or Emergency Department and need a prescription filled, or just in the area and need over-the-counter medications, this service is available. Offered to the entire community, not just NRMC patients and Associates, the Pharmacy is a full retail pharmacy that is well stocked, focused on customer service and offers convenience.
