P. Agnes was recently awarded two pharmacy renovation projects; one for Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, PA, and one for AtlantiCare in Atlantic City, NJ. These projects represent just the latest in a series of pharmacy renovation projects awarded to P. Agnes throughout the mid-Atlantic area.
Following concerns raised earlier this decade, United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) worked to update guidelines to help protect not only practitioners handling pharmaceutical products, but also the patients themselves. The resulting regulations, known as USP 800, call for a higher compliance standard when it comes to the construction and operation of compounding pharmacies.
The need to conform to USP 800 by the upcoming implementation deadline is forcing many hospitals to undergo extensive renovations of their facilities. Having extensive experience in this type of project, P. Agnes has been able to assist our clients in achieving these standards that will keep their pharmacies safe for clients and practitioners alike, while also increasing operational efficiency and aesthetic.
