Air Force Base Pharmacy

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

A major military base recently constructed a new Base Exchange with an on-site pharmacy where military personnel and their families are able to easily fulfill their prescription needs.

Pharmacy Workstations with Mobile Work Tables


The design objective was to create an efficient workspace that offered plenty of storage and “quick-pick” accessibility to prescriptions and supplies.   It was important to consider the pharmacist’s workflow requirements in order to provide the shelving, mobile workstations, and proper storage needed to optimize productivity.  

Angled Gravity-Fed Work Drawers with Organizational Dividers


With workflow being vital, we provided mobile work tables giving the pharmacy ultimate flexibility in their day to day tasks.  Our Multi-Frame System integrates traditional wall-shelving with our Modular Millwork cabinets.  The adjustable shelving allows the pharmacists to keep all prescriptions and supplies in clear view and within ergonomic reach improving concentrated productivity.  Dimmable task lights were installed beneath each of the bottom shelves to ensure sufficient lighting on top of the entire work surface.  Each of the island workstation base cabinets were designed with angled gravity fed drawers to enhance workflow and reduce fatigue by keeping the prescription dispensers organized, visible and conveniently accessible. 

Personal/Staff Lockers


In addition to the workstations, we provided two-tier personal lockers for the pharmacist’s and staff with hasp cam locks.  Four-post shelving along the exterior wall of the room will provide improved organizational storage of medication and supplies. A customized bottle dispenser was designed for the pharmacy with an acrylic front panel for easy picking and refilling of prescription containers.

Custom Bottle Dispenser for "Quick-Pick" Accessibility and Refilling


The in-depth field analysis, unmatched flexibility of the Modular Millwork product and successful installation ensure the military base has the pharmacy they need for their new Base Exchange.
