LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 6, 2020) – UK Chandler Retail Pharmacy recently became the only 24-hour pharmacy inside New Circle Road in Lexington and one of only two all-night pharmacies in all of Lexington, as other area pharmacies have shortened their hours.

Chandler Pharmacy, located on the first floor UK Chandler Hospital Pavilion A behind the gift shop, moved to overnight service in January 2019 in an effort to provide better service for patients in our emergency department and others with late-night medication needs. The pharmacy, which is open to the public, never closes.

Parking at UK Chandler Pharmacy is easy. A designated short-term parking spot on the front loop of the hospital offers a convenient way to park and run into the pharmacy for prescription pickup. Thirty minutes of free parking is also available in the UK HealthCare Garage at 110 Transcript Ave., directly across S. Limestone from the hospital. The concourse bridge at Level C of the garage offers safe passage across S. Limestone and ends just steps from the pharmacy. Security is onsite at all times.

UK Chandler is one of five convenient UK Retail Pharmacy locations. All locations are open to everyone and accept most insurance plans. The other locations are:

  • Kentucky Clinic Retail Pharmacy, first floor of the Kentucky Clinic building, near the information desk.
  • Turfland Retail Pharmacy, inside the UK Turfland Outpatient Services Center on Harrodsburg Road.
  • UK Good Samaritan Retail Pharmacy, just inside the main hospital entrance.
  • University Health Service Retail Pharmacy, first floor of the UHS building.
