-- Grand Rapids, Michigan, May 16, 2012 – Keystone Pharmacy is proud to announce that it has been approved for reaccreditation by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board, or PCAB, for sterile and non-sterile compounding through Feb. 1, 2015.
Keystone Pharmacy is one of only five pharmacies in Michigan that has received this accreditation and is the first to go through reaccreditation. It was also among the original 50 pharmacies in the nation to receive the accreditation;
today there are approximately 140 pharmacies that are PCAB accredited.
PCAB was created by eight of the leading organizations in the pharmacy profession for the purpose of recognizing those compounding pharmacies that have demonstrated their outstanding commitment to quality. Accreditation means that the pharmacy ranks among the best in the nation for compliance with quality standards.
“We are exceptionally pleased to receive re-accreditation from the PCAB," said Dave Miller, chief formulation scientist and co-owner. “Demand for compounded medications continues to increase and quality remains of the utmost importance. We are committed to providing the highest quality compounding services to our patients and are proud to be acknowledged for our efforts once again.”
