would be provided right in the doctor's office or would be waiting for
immediate pick-up at the HealthCare Village® drive-through pharmacy.

Village Cafe. There are people milling around and you can hear children's
laughter from the daycare play area. When you pull up to the childcare
center curb, a valet asks you if you need assistance. He directs you to a
specially designated parking area for arriving and departing moms and dads.
You can't help but marvel at the convenience and courtesy found at
neighbor drives by as you exit your car. She pulls over and tells you she
is on her way to the HealthCare Village® Healthy Kitchen for a cooking
class. Inside the childcare center, you notice a kiosk with links to
children's activities, resources and information about taking care of
children. The Village looks and feels like a place that you would come to
when you felt good, but wanted to feel even better.
