Marshfield Medical Center Beaver Dam Closes Pharmacy To Walk-Up Customers

(Beaver Dam) Starting Friday, Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam Pharmacy will no longer be accepting walk-up customers until further notice. The pharmacy at 705 S. University Avenue will continue to refill prescriptions. In lieu of counter pickup, the pharmacy will be offering delivery, mail-out and curbside pickup services.

Curbside pick-up services will be reserved for acute and immediate needs. Dedicated parking spaces are located in the physician parking lot to the north of the Vita Park Medical Building, and those picking up prescriptions will be prompted to call the pharmacy at 920-356-0040 when they arrive. A pharmacy employee will then deliver the prescriptions.

For delivery service, MMC-BD will be expanding its delivery radius beyond Beaver Dam to include the surrounding areas. Please call the pharmacy at 920-356-0040 with any questions or concerns regarding these new services.

The Beaver Dam hospital has also suspended all elective ambulatory and inpatient procedures, and non-urgent ambulatory visits until further notice. Each patient who will be impacted by this change is being called to reschedule their appointment.

Elective is defined as any procedure that, if delayed 30 to 60 days, would not jeopardize a patient’s health. Similarly, non-urgent ambulatory visits are those where delay would not negatively affect a patient’s health, such as annual wellness/routine physical exams, follow-up visits for stable medical conditions and office procedures.

If you are a patient with an elective procedure coming up that is critical to your health and quality-of-life, the hospital will still see you.

By delaying care for those patients whose health will not be negatively affected by postponing their appointment, the hospital can ensure the resources and staff needed to handle the novel coronavirus, and limit potential exposure of staff and patients.
