Essentia Health offering drive-thru pharmacy service on downtown Duluth campus

To better meet the needs of our patients, Essentia Health is excited to launch a new drive-thru service at our Essentia Health Third Street Pharmacy.

Located in the Duluth Clinic Third Street Building (400 E 3rd St), this is Essentia’s largest and busiest retail pharmacy, serving 4,000 patients a month. The drive-thru is situated inside the Green Parking Ramp. Signs will direct patients where to go.

“Our new drive-thru offers another socially distanced option for prescription dispensing for our patients,” said Amy Marchus, Essentia’s ambulatory pharmacy operations senior manager. “Our Third Street Pharmacy currently offers prescription pick-up, curbside delivery and meds-to-beds hospital discharge delivery services. Now, we’ll have another added convenience.”

The drive-thru service is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. It’s a tube system, similar to what you would find at a bank.

Essentia also has drive-thru pharmacies in Detroit Lakes, Grand Rapids, Pine River, Superior’s East End and Two Harbors.

“We are excited to offer this service, which provides a safe alternative to picking up medications during the COVID-19 pandemic and into the future,” said Third Street Pharmacy site supervisor Michael Kozlovski.
