Muscogee (Creek) Nation Department of Health Opens New Pharmacy Refill Center
Okmulgee, Okla. – The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Department of Health is adding a new 3,400 square-foot pharmacy refill center to its pharmacy operations on June 15, 2020. The new facility will add capacity and allow for faster processing of refilled prescriptions.
Patients will not pickup prescriptions at this location. The center will process and mail an estimated 55,000 prescriptions per month. In March, the MCNDH pharmacy program expanded the mailing of refillable prescriptions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We will continue the new automated process of sending prescriptions directly to homes,” Dusty Allen, Director of Pharmacy Operations. “This new center will increase our capacity to process more orders so that providers and pharmacist-managed clinics will have more time to spend with patients to address their health needs.”
New prescriptions pickups will still be available at all clinic locations. Patients are urged to contact the pharmacy at 855-771-4321, online at creekhealth.org, or via the Muscogee (Creek) Pharmacy app to confirm their contact information and address is correct.
The Muscogee (Creek) Nation is the fourth-largest federally recognized tribe in the United States, headquartered in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. MCN has more than 87,000 citizens, 75 percent of which live in Oklahoma.
