The Main Campus Pharmacy at The University of Toledo is updating its hours of operation.
The pharmacy located in the Main Campus Medical Center on the southwest side of campus will continue to serve customers Monday through Saturday, but will no longer be open on Sundays.
“During a time of limited resources, we analyzed our traffic and because Sunday by far has the fewest customers, we decided eliminating Sunday hours would have the least impact on those who use the pharmacy,” said Karen Gallo-Willard, head pharmacist.
The pharmacy will continue to be open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for those who prefer to get their prescriptions filled during the weekend.
Thursday hours during the summer also will be extended an hour in the morning and half-hour in the evening from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
During the summer, the Main Campus Pharmacy operates from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, and from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
Fall semester, the hours will return to the academic year schedule of Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday hours will remain from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. throughout the year.
In addition to its convenient location, the Main Campus Pharmacy offers prescription refills via an automated phone system at 419.530.3471 or online through its website. Email, call or text messaging services are available to inform patients when their prescriptions are ready to be picked up. A secured drop box outside the entrance also is available for prescription drop off when the pharmacy is closed.
The extended summer hours on Thursdays will begin July 11 as the pharmacy will be closed Thursday, July 4, for the Independence Day holiday.
“The Main Campus Outpatient Pharmacy will continue to provide students and faculty with a convenient location to get prescriptions filled and where they can receive counseling on all new, refill and transfer prescriptions from our highly trained pharmacists,” Gallo-Willard said.
