Our Business

Lloydminster's only compounding pharmacy isn't the only thing we have to brag about.

Established in 1987, Sprucewood Pharmacy offers a range of products and services including prescription medications, customized patient care services, health and wellness products, and confidential consultation services. In 2017, Sprucewood introduced a new facet to their business: The Compounding Corner Pharmacy Lab. The first pharmacy in Lloydminster to offer this highly specialized service, the Compounding Corner provides personalized medications and prescriptions made in the specific strength and dosage form required by each patient.
