Fort Campbell, KY – The Town Center Pharmacy will be closed Saturday, April 29th, for scheduled upgrades to the Blanchfield Army Community Hospital network that will make the pharmacy’s information technology applications unavailable.
BACH’s information technology team is slated to upgrade network applications throughout the spring. Although these upgrades are taking place during dates and times that have the least amount of impact on patient care, it is impossible to make all upgrades without impacting the hospital’s busiest pharmacy, the Town Center.
