About the Pharmacy Team
Irwin Army Community Hospital’s Department of Pharmacy is made up of a team of dedicated healthcare workers composed of Registered Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, Administrative and Supply Management personnel, and Red Cross volunteers. This cohesive team is dispersed throughout IACH’s patient care areas rendering pharmaceutical services to both inpatient and ambulatory patients.
IACH’s pharmacy has a broad array of available pharmaceuticals called a formulary. Our formulary is routinely reviewed and updated to add and remove drugs so as to better serve our patients for their treatment needs. If you have a special medication need that is not covered by the formulary, please inquire about your available options.

- the purpose of your prescription
- making sure you know how to take or use your medication
- explaining common side effects
The pharmacy team is dedicated to work with you to ensure your best possible health.
