Northern Maine Medical to add meds-to-beds program

Northern Maine (Fort Kent) Medical Center is adding a program to give patients their prescriptions before being discharged, WAGM, a local CBS affiliate, reported. 

The meds-to-beds program eliminates the need for patients to go to a pharmacy to pick up their prescription and the possibility that the pharmacy is closed.

The program should be up and running by early February, WAGM reported.
