medical profession. Currently, he is serving as vice-chairperson of the Pharmacists’ Association of Saskatchewan. He has also been a member of the Board of Directors for PharmaChoice Western and United Pharmacists Enterprise, as well as a councillor with the Saskatchewan College of Pharmacists. Locally, he contributes his time to being on committees with the Sunrise Health Region. Curtis’ participation in so many associations, both provincially and locally, is just another way in which he works to improve the quality of health care for his clients and the people of Saskatchewan. Curtis has spent a lot of time developing new policies and procedures to streamline medication and review processes in longterm care facilities. His efforts have created

a network of professionals that work well together to provide quality resident care. The compliance packaging for medications that is now standard practice in care homes and long term care facilities is also offered by the staff at Loucks Pharmacy to clients still residing in their own homes. The store has also installed new technology to provide higher quality service to the longterm care facilities they serve. When Curtis and Tracy opened Loucks Pharmacy, it was just the two of them. Today, they have a staff of 15 and have expanded their store from 600 square feet to 2,200 square feet. Loucks Pharmacy also sells Sigvaris compression stockings and has three certified fitters on staff. They also provide education and supplies for those with sports-related injuries. In July, Curtis

and Tracy made the decision to merge with Rubicon Pharmacies, believing that by doing so it would help them to further their commitment to providing the best possible health care for their clients. Relationships are the core of Loucks Pharmacy and the cornerstone for how Curtis, Tracy and their team make a difference for their clients. “We wanted to bring in a level of care that would make a difference in people’s lives. We have been so grateful for the support and encouragement of the whole community,” says Tracy.
