“Our new pharmacy is located within the Essentia Health-Pine River Clinic, allowing for more direct access when picking up your prescriptions or over-the-counter products. We will also have a drive-thru, which offers new convenience for our patients,” Amy Marchus, pharmacy operations senior manager, said in a news release.

The pharmacy will be the first area to open in the new building. The clinic is currently under construction and plans to open in late November.
