Lewis Drug Awarded Exemplary Provider® Accreditation

SPRING HOUSE, PA (April 2018) – Lewis Drug, Inc., with 52 stores located throughout South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota, was recently awarded Exemplary Provider® accredited status by The Compliance Team, Inc., the nationally recognized independent healthcare accreditation organization based in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Lewis Drug’s locations were accredited for Community Pharmacy, Long-term Care, DMEPOS Part B (Durable Medical Equipment Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies) and Telepharmacy. Recipients of Exemplary Provider accredited status must demonstrate outstanding healthcare delivery practices during a rigorous on-site facility evaluation. The Compliance Team’s accreditation programs streamline day-to-day operations, benchmark patients’ satisfaction, improve the patient/pharmacy experience and position the provider organization for long-term growth. “The Compliance Team is delighted to welcome Lewis Drug’s 52 locations as Exemplary Providers,” said Sandra C. Canally, RN, The Compliance Team’s Founder and CEO. “Exemplary Providers are true leaders in their home communities as well as in the pharmacy community. What is especially noteworthy is that Lewis Drug chose to become accredited for programs that are not required by CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.) This emphasizes Lewis Drugs’s commitment to their patients and clients for continual service and process improvement.” Bill Ladwig, Lewis Drug’s Senior Vice President of Professional Services, said, “We are proud to be recognized as an Exemplary Provider by The Compliance Team. We have strived to deliver the highest quality pharmacy services to our patients for over 75 years. Lewis Drug remains committed to its role as a regional leader in the evolution of pharmacy and other health care services.” In 1942, Lewis Drug opened South Dakota’s first self-service drugstore. Since 1942, shoppers have trusted family-owned Lewis as their neighborhood store and pharmacy and the company has grown to 52 stores conveniently located throughout South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota. Lewis Drugs is committed to providing their communities with exceptional prices and services. Formed in 1994, The Compliance Team, Inc. is the first and only nationally recognized, privately held, woman owned healthcare accreditation organization granted deeming authority by CMS Part B DMEPOS and Part A Rural Health Clinics. It is the only accreditation organization that offers Exemplary Provider® status. The Compliance Team’s operations-based accreditation program for pharmacy services includes Community plus DMEPOS, Long-Term Care, Infusion, Specialty Drug, Compounding, Telepharmacy and Patient-Centered Pharmacy Home™ (PCPH). Each year, The Compliance Team accredits thousands of provider organizations based in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
