National Jewish Health has an onsite pharmacy to provide prescription services for medications your physician may prescribe during your stay. The pharmacy can process most prescription insurance claims electronically as prescriptions are filled. However, it is the patient’s responsibility to verify prescription benefits with their insurance carriers; and payment can be made using cash, check or major credit cards. Payment is required when prescriptions are filled. The pharmacy staff will be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding your medication or prescription charges by calling 303.398.1582 or visiting the pharmacy located in the main lobby. The pharmacy hours are Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The Tucker Medical Library on the first floor of the Goodman building is open to patients and their families. Although the emphasis of the Library collection is scientific and medical, the Helen L. Rider Health Information Center located within the Library contains health consumer-oriented information related to the disorders treated at National Jewish.

The Library computer center provides Internet access and can be used to research health topics, as well as accessing e-mail and printing boarding passes. For those with WiFi enabled laptops, WiFi is available in the library as well as the clinic areas. Be sure to ask the library staff for assistance with accessing information or using the computers.
