“Life. The reason we do what we do.” – PharMEDium®
For a company like PharMEDium, making a superior quality product isn’t just an objective: Life and death literally hang in the balance.
As the nation’s largest provider of outsourced compounded sterile preparations (CSPs), PharMEDium, which is based in Lake Forest, IL, performs the mixing and packaging of ready-to-use, pre-measured dosages of drugs that are administered every day by doctors and nurses to patients in hospitals and intensive care units to manage pain, undergo surgery, and treat numerous medical conditions and illnesses. Now a subsidiary of AmerisourceBergen, PharMEDium operates four state-of-the-art, FDA-registered facilities across the US where its highly trained workforce mixes and packages more than 2,800 types of drug preparations that meet the highest quality standards and federal requirements. Its packaging provides a unique system of color-coded labeling that not only ensures healthcare providers administer the correct drug at the precise dosage but also mitigates the risk of error that might occur with “look alike” drugs or misread instructions.
