Fort Campbell's hospital will be cutting a popular medication service and reducing hours at its pharmacy as the hospital prepares for looming military budget cuts.

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital said in a news release on Wednesday that to meet mandatory budget reductions, they had to make changes to extra services that were previously provided to soldiers and their families.

One popular program that is being cut is a self-care program that allowed patients to get free over-the-counter medications, like cold and flu medications or aspirin, from pharmacies at the hospital. Effective immediately, those medications will have to be purchased at local drug stores.

The main hospital pharmacy will also close one hour early at 5 p.m. instead of 6 p.m. starting next week.
