ATTENTION VETERANS!!!   If you utilize your urgent care benefit, and the urgent care clinic provides a prescription, please download this Urgent Care Prescription Card, or print it and keep it with you at all times. You will need to present this information to the retail pharmacist.

VETERANS: Due to the ongoing pandemic, and out of a concern for your safety, this Friday's New Patient Orientation has been cancelled. Check the calendar for future orientations.
