Blanchfield Army Community Hospital’s Town Center Pharmacy hosts Drug Take Back Day and Open House

Blanchfield Army Hospital - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – Blanchfield Army Community Hospital’s Town Center Pharmacy’s team invites you to participate in their Open House April 28th from 10:00am to noon.

The event coincides with the Drug Take Back Day Event, where community members may drop off unused or expired medications lying around the house April 28th from 10:00am to 2:00pm outside the Town Center Pharmacy.

This is the third year the Town Center Pharmacy has partnered with the Army Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to offer the community an opportunity to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

”We are excited to partner with both ASAP and DEA to offer opportunities for the community to dispose of their unused drugs safely and anonymously,” said Chief of BACH’s Pharmacy Maj. Kevin Ridderhoff.

Medications may be brought to the Town Center Pharmacy parking lot on Michigan Avenue for safe disposal. Tablets, capsules liquids and all other solid medication will be collected. For safety reasons, intravenous solutions, injectables, and syringes will not be accepted.

“BACH Pharmacy team will have information onsite on how to properly dispose of medications that cannot be accepted on Drug Take Back Day.”

The Town Center Pharmacy completed a renovation April 9th. The upgrades included a new prescription dispensing robot, which will assist the pharmacy team to work more efficiently while continuing to offer safe and accurate prescription services.

Children are also invited to enter the Robot Coloring and Naming Contest. Entry forms may be printed from http://tiny.cc/robotname and completed entries may be turned in to any BACH pharmacy by 3:00pm Friday, April 20th. The winning contestant will be invited to participate in a robot naming ceremony during the April 28th Open House.
