Lifespark and Consonus Healthcare Partner to Bring Elevated Pharmacy Services to Minnesota Seniors

Consonus Pharmacy, a leading independent, long term care pharmacy, is partnering with Lifespark™, a complete senior health company in Minnesota. The two industry leaders have joined forces to enhance pharmaceutical services for seniors in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

As of October 1, 2023, Consonus Pharmacy is supplying and supporting all pharmaceutical services for Lifespark Senior Living communities. The partnership spans 34 campuses in Minnesota, and five in Wisconsin. Additionally, the Consonus team provides clinical pharmacological consultancy within Lifespark’s value-based care services to Lifespark COMPLETE members.

Consonus will enhance the pharmacy services available to seniors in Minnesota, while complementing Lifespark’s exceptional work and stellar reputation in senior services,” said president of Consonus Pharmacy, Jessica Androff, PharmD, BCGP. “This is what we do best – delivering high-touch, precise pharmaceutical services that are critical for safe, effective distribution of medications to seniors. Our unique, proactive approach ensures seniors live the best, rest of their lives.”

In addition, Consonus pharmacists will consult with Lifespark’s nurses and physicians to ensure accuracy and precision of medications prescribed to all Lifespark’s senior living and members in both senior living and community settings. These consulting services will streamline the medication process, which is critical when there are multiple health providers prescribing different medications.

Two Innovative Leaders, One Vision

Lifespark and Marquis Companies, Consonus’ parent company are both steadfast in their ideologies – helping seniors live their very best lives.

“Lifespark partnered with Consonus to bring an elevated pharmacy service — not only to Lifespark’s ecosystem but to the Minnesota market,” said Joel Theisen, BSN, RN, CEO of Lifespark. “We were impressed by their specific focus on the senior population. As boardcertified geriatric pharmacists, Consonus brings expertise in the complexity of medications and a unique understanding of how medications impact the aging body. This is critical to a person’s complete senior health experience, and it’s rare to have this level of clinical pharmacology consultancy as an interdisciplinary member of our team.”
