Big Bend Regional Hospital District
Marfa Meds is a medication distribution service operated by the BBRHD for residents living in Presidio County. Prescriptions are transported from pharmacies in Alpine to our Marfa Meds location at Porters in Marfa.
Individuals may call their prescription refills into their Alpine pharmacy or have your medical provider send new prescriptions into their Alpine pharmacy. Each morning the Marfa Meds pharmacy technician picks up any prescriptions that are available and transports them to Marfa. These prescriptions can then be picked up by the individual between 2:00 PM and 6:00 PM from the Marfa Meds pharmacy technician.
Marfa Meds is open Monday through Friday, except holidays.
BBRHD provides grant opportunities for nonprofit entities or for profit business which provide healthcare related services to needy, or other services consistent with the healthcare objectives of the District, for residents of Brewster or Presidio Counties.
