The Sentara RMH Outpatient Pharmacy fills prescription medications for patients who have been discharged, Sentara Home Care Services patients, patients of the Sentara RMH Hahn Cancer Center, Emergency Department patients and hospital staff. Located on the second floor of the hospital, the non-profit retail pharmacy is open Monday-Friday, 7am-2am and Saturday-Sunday, 8am-2am.

For patients and employees alike, the Outpatient Pharmacy offers the convenience of having your prescriptions filled onsite before you leave the facility. Patients or family members may stop by the Pharmacy to drop off prescriptions or pick up medications prior to discharge. Because of the Pharmacy’s non-profit status, subsequent refills for discharged patients' prescription medications must be obtained from another pharmacy.
Payment for prescriptions, including all co-pays, is expected at the time of service. The Outpatient Pharmacy accepts cash, checks, Visa and Mastercard.
