“Our new PCAB® Accreditation status and our designation as a PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacy lets the public know that La Vita Compounding Pharmacy ranks among the best for quality and safety,” said Chris Givant, RPh. “The PCAB® Seal of Accreditation shows our dedication to protecting our patients by practicing safe, high-quality compounding.”

With the high volume of prescriptions that are compounded each year, there has been a need for an enhanced, profession-wide system of standards by which each compounding pharmacy can test its quality processes. While compounding pharmacies are regulated by the state, PCAB® Accreditation is an even more comprehensive way to ensure a compounding pharmacy is meeting quality and safety standards.

To earn PCAB® Accreditation, La Vita Compounding 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 La Vita Compounding Pharmacy the PCAB® Seal of Accreditation and the right to use the designation “PCAB Accredited® compounding pharmacy.”

“We are honored by this new accreditation. It confirms our commitment to providing safe, personalized solutions that meet the medical needs of our patients – and the needs of the healthcare providers in our community who rely on us for these specialized medicines,” said Deb Hubers, Co-Founder of La Vita. “We believe this will further strengthen the bond of trust between our pharmacy and the San Diego community.”
