The story of Alaska Family Pharmacy begins in November, 1987. Founding pharmacist Richard “Dick” Holm started North Pole Prescription Laboratory Inc in North Pole, Alaska. Over the years, the pharmacy has seen many changes, beginning as a small retail pharmacy renting a space in a professional building, to a stand alone 5000 square foot building. The extra space has given them room to grow into specialties such as compounding and specialized medication/health consultations.
Dick and his son Leif, current President/CEO, expanded their practice to include two Fairbanks pharmacies with long running histories in the Fairbanks community – Professional Pharmacy and Prescription Center. Through this merger, the pharmacies expanded the Good Neighbor Pharmacy brand into the community, offering a host of programs including Medication Synchronization, Unit Dose Bubble packing, Savings Cards, Medication Take-Back’s, and Medicare part D assistance. We are also the only group of pharmacies in the area that offer home delivery!
Now, with continued growth on the horizon, North Pole Prescription Lab, Prescription Center, and Professional Pharmacy have combined under the same name to form Alaska Family Pharmacy, a Good Neighbor Pharmacy. Here at Alaska Family Pharmacy, your health and wellness is our first priority, and helping you achieve those with outstanding customer service is our number one goal. We may have changed the name, but we haven’t changed who we are.
Same owner, same great staff, same great service, great new name!
