Starting January 1, 2024, Lakewood Health System added a group of three retail pharmacies to the organization by purchasing Longbella Drug. Longbella Drug by Lakewood will continue to provide the same great care, service and products customers came to expect from Longbella Drug over the course of it’s 60-year legacy and commitment to the Staples community.
In addition to the established Longbella Drug by Lakewood locations at Lakewood’s Pillager and Staples clinics, a new location has been added at The Plaza on the east side of Staples. This takes the place of the Longbella Drug previously located downtown.
We continue to work through the ownership transition and have plans in place to minimize any interruption for patients. Longbella Drug’s current pharmacy network/prescription insurance contracts will be extended for 2024 and we are setting up new pharmacy network/prescription insurance contracts to continue all current coverage and expand once we have all the contracting complete.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this transition. We look forward to continuing to serve the community in 2024!
