On Mon., Aug. 9 at 8 a.m., the University’s Health Services and Pharmacy Care Center opened their doors to the Belmont community. The faculty and staff of the School of Pharmacy gathered in celebration of this long-anticipated moment. After a visit to the Health Services Center, Belmont staff member Lougan Bishop, information systems assistant/web specialist in enrollment services, became the pharmacy’s first customer. Bishop said, “Having Health Services and the Pharmacy in one place is so incredibly convenient. I could go to Health Services and get a refill on my prescription then walk right next door and get that prescription filled. Not only that, the staff of the new Pharmacy are great. Not only did they fill my prescription, they worked with Humana to get me an even better discount than I was already getting.”
The Pharmacy Care Center, a functioning classroom and business, is ready for customers to bring their prescriptions to be transferred from other pharmacies. Dr. Ronda Bryant, the pharmacy manager, invites the Belmont community to stop by for a visit anytime and is open to suggestions for new products and services.
