Guthrie Health First to Offer OTC Products at ScriptCenter® Kiosk

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Asteres Inc., the industry’s leading provider of 24/7 automated pharmacy kiosks, announced today that Guthrie Health is the first hospital pharmacy to offer Over-The-Counter (OTC) products in addition to prescriptions at their ScriptCenter kiosk. Hospitals are installing ScriptCenter to provide a quick and convenient prescription drop-off and pick-up service to hospital employees, especially those who work when the pharmacy is closed. Now, with a selection of top selling OTC items in ScriptCenter, Guthrie employees and patients have 24/7 access to purchase a wide variety of healthcare products.

“Adding our Leader brand OTC's is a big benefit to our employees and clinic patients. Our employees really appreciate the convenience of picking up their prescriptions and OTC’s on all shifts. The ER can now send patients to ScriptCenter saving them an extra trip to the store. Making OTC items available 24/7 for our staff and clinic patients just makes sense,” said Robert Schmidt, System Director of Pharmacy.

For prescription pick up, users enroll at ScriptCenter or ScriptCenter.com to create their log in ID and PIN. For OTC products, no log in is required, so anyone can shop ScriptCenter for the healthcare items they need. ScriptCenter accepts debit, credit and flexible spending cards.
