Owens has been serving the North State's medical equipment needs since 1981.
We maintain a strong commitment to the local community and the belief that small-town service is always in style. Owens is the provider of choice for most customers that need respiratory equipment set up by a company with best-in-class employees and service they can trust.
Owens Healthcare, a family-led and locally owned company serving Northern California since 1957, has changed its name to the Friesen Group.
Our medical equipment and respiratory services business, long-term care pharmacy, infusion services, and commercial real estate business are established as separate brands under the business names Owens, Lifemed, Wellscript, and J3, respectively. These businesses remain under the same ownership and remain a part of the Friesen Group of companies. There are no staff changes as a result of the rebranding.
Our team hasn’t changed. Our locations haven’t changed. The only thing that’s changed is our name. We’re as committed as ever to serving our local communities, just as we have been since 1957.
Long-Term Care Pharmacy
Lifemed is the new name for Owens long-term care pharmacy. We provide a range of clinical services to skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, senior living communities, congregate care settings, and mental health facilities north of Sacramento.
Serving the North State under the name Owens since 1985, Wellscript was renamed in 2023 to better reflect our commitment to specialized care. Through our clinical expertise and community support, Wellscript is reimagining the infusion care experience.
