  • Institutional Pharmacy - Hospital pharmacy operations are constantly evolving. The shift from delivery of medications to the delivery of pharmacy services is accelerating. Hospital administrators and directors are now requiring pharmacy services to more actively support patient outcomes and transition of care. The realignment of pharmacy services means that traditional pharmacy operations must run more streamlined and efficient. In addition, many hospital pharmacy directors are unsure if their sterile compounding facilities and operations are compliant with the State's rapidly evolving rules. HCC's hospital pharmacy consultants are experts in this field, most having been department heads themselves, and can provide the guidance you need to evolve and succeed.

We will then present our findings and recommendations to you so that there will be no surprises during the actual inspection.
