PRMC Home Scripts

PRMC Home Scripts provides patients with their first fills of medications prescribed at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. As a transition-of-care pharmacy, we want to ensure that patients are being discharged with all of the medications they need to stay healthy. PRMC Home Scripts will work with your preferred pharmacy to ensure that subsequent refills are available.

Some areas of Peninsula Regional Medical Center even offer concierge service – the patient’s prescription is sent to the pharmacy, if he or she wishes, and the prescription is delivered right to the bedside before the patient is discharged. In other areas, or at times when concierge service isn’t available, family members and friends of the patient often help to get the prescription filled.

PRMC Home Scripts only serves PRMC patients and employees - walk-in customers are not permitted. To reach the PRMC Home Scripts pharmacy, call 410-543-4798.
