Guardian Pharmacy of Atlanta has acquired two long-term care pharmacies.

The company picked up the long-term care division of Moye's Pharmacy in Stockbridge, Georgia, and Wedner & Roberts Assisted Living Pharmacy in Roswell, Georgia.

The expansion allows Atlanta-based Guardian to serve group homes, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities in Georgia. The deal also gives Guardian a bump in prescription volume by more than 70 percent.

In another recent specialty pharmacy deal, Modern Healthcare's acquired Total Life Care RX Pharmacy LLC and Legacy RX Holdings LLC in March. Deals like these leverage a growing aging U.S. population, and are expected to continue.
