June 2017: Wright-Patt breaks ground on satellite pharmacy

A groundbreaking held June 8 for a stand-alone satellite pharmacy at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base will enhance the trusted care provided to Airmen and their families as well as retirees, the base commander said.

“They deserve that,” said Col. Bradley McDonald, 88th Air Base Wing commander, who added that ensuring Airmen are well prepared and mission-capable is extremely important.

The 10,000-square-foot facility, to be constructed near the AAFES Express in Kittyhawk Center, Area A, more than doubles the space of the one currently attached to the base commissary in Bldg. 1250.

It will offer customers ease of use and desired patient-focused amenities, such as a covered drive-thru, larger waiting and processing area, Wi-Fi connectivity and electronic recharging stations, said Col. Shari Silverman, 88th Medical Group commander.

The $10 million contract allows $6.6 million for construction, with another $3.4 million allowed for state-of-the-art robotic equipment and furnishings. Butt Construction Co. of Dayton will build the new pharmacy, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Louisville District acting as construction agent. Leo A. Daly is serving as the architecture and engineering firm.

All work is scheduled to be complete by spring 2019.
