FORT IRWIN, Calif. – Department of Defense beneficiaries on Fort Irwin can now pick up their refill medications using the ScriptCenter kiosk locker system located inside the main entrance of Weed Army Community Hospital.

The ScriptCenter Kiosk is a free, convenient and secure way to pick up prescription refills during regular hospital hours, including hours when the pharmacy may be closed.

Maj. Lucas Poon, the chief of pharmacy for Weed ACH, said the kiosk will benefit those who need to pick up medications outside of normal pharmacy hours.

“I think it’s a fabulous resource, especially for the rotation schedule here,” she said. “I think it’s great for the Soldiers to be able to just quickly come in and pick up their prescriptions, even if the pharmacy’s not open.”

Samples said she first heard about the new kiosk from her husband and then during a recent visit to the hospital to pick up prescriptions, a pharmacy technician encouraged her to create a profile at the kiosk.

The kiosk provides a more timely process for beneficiaries picking up prescriptions.

“Since [the medication is] prefilled and stored in the kiosk, patients won’t have to wait at all, they’ll just have to come in and pick it up at the kiosk,” Poon said. “It gives you the flexibility to pick up your medications without having to wait, especially on really busy days.”
