High marks on quality and safety!

Ladd Family Pharmacy holds the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board’s Seal of Accreditation – a system of standards created by some of the leading organizations in the compounding pharmacy profession. The accreditation was granted to Ladd Family Pharmacy for it's incredible performance with Non-Sterile Compounding activities.

To earn PCAB® Accreditation, Ladd Family Pharmacy had to complete an extensive application, document its written policies and provide an analysis of its quality procedures that was reviewed by the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board and some of the leading figures in the field of compounding.

Next, the pharmacy opened its doors for an extensive on-site inspection led by compounding experts. Only when these stringent evaluations were completed did the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board officially grant Ladd Family Pharmacy the PCAB® Seal of Accreditation and the right to use the designation “PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacy.”
