They have a diagnostics center. A pharmacy in the rear. The 2nd floor caters to those who need food, clothes washed, or a shower; all for free. But, you must be there early in the morning for certain things, and 12:30pm for other things!!

Fast service; however the staff I saw was rude. I don't know how you can be rude to a person you've never met or who hasn't given you any reason to be rude.
