Pet Health Pharmacy Renews PCAB Accreditation

pcab accreditationYoungtown, AZ, Pet Health Pharmacy proudly announces its continued achievement of PCAB Accreditation, a service of the ACHC, for the services of patient-specific prescriptions of non-sterile compounds. The accreditation is awarded in recognition of the pharmacy’s commitment to meeting and/or exceeding national quality standards.

Accreditation is a process through which healthcare organizations demonstrate compliance with national standards. PCAB Accreditation reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.

“Pet Health Pharmacy is committed to delivering the highest quality compounded medications,” said PHP president Wally Simons. “By achieving PCAB Accreditation, our customers can be assured that our organization follows industry best practices and is in compliance with the most stringent national standards.”

Compounding is an integral part of the practice of pharmacy, and the demand for these customized medications increases every year. Compounded medications are prescribed by physicians, veterinarians, and other legally-authorized healthcare providers and prepared for an individual patient by a specially-trained pharmacist.

Established in 2007, PCAB was founded by eight of the nation’s leading pharmacy organizations to create voluntary quality accreditation designation for the compounding industry. The organization promotes, develops, and maintains principles, policies, and standards for improving the quality of pharmacy compounding nationwide. In 2014, PCAB accreditation became a service of the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC), whereby the ACHC administers the PCAB Accreditation program.

Pet Health Pharmacy was founded with the passion to find unique solutions to difficult problems that traditional medicine could not treat, and has focused on custom-compounded medications for animals.
