5/7/2013 11:01:00 AM Tuba City Regional Health Care opens new pharmacy in LeChee
LECHEE, Ariz. - Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation (TCRHCC) Pharmacy opened a third pharmacy, the LeChee Pharmacy, at the LeChee Health Facility in LeChee, Ariz. April 15.
The LeChee pharmacy is located three miles south of Page, Ariz. on Coppermine Road next to the LeChee Chapter House. It will provide pharmacy services to Native American beneficiaries living in the area.
"This is all for our patients and better quality care," said Amelia Kelly, TCRHCC Board of Directors member from LeChee. "The LeChee Health Facility's Pharmacy will make things more convenient for our patients and community, but mainly it will help them with better access to their medications to get well."
Services will include accepting new prescriptions from a licensed doctor from any of the Page Health Facilities, as well as refilling prescriptions and mailing prescriptions to patients who choose this option.
"If we can make it easier for patients to get their medications their doctor prescribes them, they'll get well sooner and be more likely to stay well," said Esther Tsingine, TCRHCC Board of Director member from Coppermine.
The Lechee Pharmacy is making it easier for patients to pick up their medications after visiting with their doctors in Tuba City. The two pharmacies in LeChee and Tuba City are able to communicate and coordinate to have prescriptions ready for their patients. This reduces wait times for patients while they travel home to Coppermine, LeChee or anywhere in Page.
The LeChee Pharmacy is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Prescriptions can be ordered by phone or in-person. LeChee Pharmacy representatives are available at (928) 698-4911. Prescriptions can be ordered from the LeChee Pharmacy Refill Line at (928) 698-4914.
The LeChee pharmacy also accepts new prescriptions from licensed doctors from any of the Page Health Facilities.
The LeChee Pharmacy saves Native American beneficiaries from paying a co-payment to get their medications.
"Prescriptions filled right at the LeChee Health Facility for our TCRHCC patients living in Coppermine, Kaibeto, LeChee or anywhere in Page saves them money and time," said James Brant Young, TCRHCC director of pharmacy services. "We are also making the process of leaving the Tuba City hospital and heading home simpler and quicker by sending our patients' prescription to LeChee if they live in the area."
