For patients who are asked to pick up drugs inside the hospital
Patients who are asked to receive prescription drugs inside the hospital receive their medicine at the Pharmacy Window on the first basement floor at the Center for Outpatient Health. Those holding a medicine notebook or a narcotics prescription are requested to present it at the window as soon as possible upon your arrival because pharmacy staff must fill in the necessary information or carry out required checking, etc.
