Longbella Drug by Lakewood Health System Transition Timeline

Dec. 11, 2023: Starting January 1, 2024, Longbella Drug will be under new ownership, becoming Longbella Drug by Lakewood Health System. As the transition deadlines approaches, representatives from Lakewood and the current Longbella Drug have put together some important timeline and insurance information to share with customers and the community.

All Longbella Drug locations will be closed from Saturday, December 30, 2023 through January 1, 2024. The Longbella Drug location downtown will close permanently after Friday, December 29, 2023, while the pharmacies located at the Lakewood Pillager and Staples clinics will reopen on Tuesday, January 2, 2024. The new Longbella Drug location at The Plaza will open on Wednesday, January 3, 2024.

We are asking all current customers to plan ahead and order prescriptions accordingly, based on the above dates. Please pick up all prescriptions by Friday, December 29, 2023 to avoid running out of medications during the temporary closures.

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!
