Behind the Pharmacy Window

Santo Domingo Health Center Pharmacy is not like your typical retail pharmacy. Here's why:


  • We check every new prescription with your lab results and other medications to make sure you're getting the right dose the first time.

  • We can also dispense medical supplies for certain conditions such as diabetes meters and testing strips, nebulizers, syringes, sharps containers, pillboxes etc., making our pharmacy truly a "one-stop shop."

  • Our pharmacists take the time to educate you about your medicines: how and when to take them, how to manage side effects, what they're for.

  • We stock one of the largest varieties of medicines of any tribal health center, and we keep up with new drugs on the market.

Patients with outside prescriptions for Controlled Substances that have been filled at another pharmacy will not be filled until the days? supply has lapsed. If a patient has violated our SDHC Controlled Substance Usage Agreement contract or any other Health Center/Provider Pain contracts the SDHC Pharmacy reserves the right to refuse to fill any outside prescriptions for Controlled Substances.

If a patient is filling multiple outside Controlled Substances at other pharmacies, per the New Mexico Prescription Monitoring Program (NM-PMP) report, the pharmacy will notify your Designated Primary Care Provider and the outside proscription will have to be approved by your Provider.
