Who is Peninsula Compounding (peninsulacompoundingpharmacy.com)

Peninsula Compounding is known for its game changing service to customers, affordable pricing, and fast turnaround. Providers view us as an invaluable member of their Clinical Team.  We not only provide high quality compounds at an affordable price but what is a game changer for providers is our ability to provide clinical expertise in teaching progressive protocols, sharing of proven formulations, educating on multimodal dosing protocols to improve outcomes coupled with sharing the most recent clinical findings and research.  Our goal is to do everything we can to make it easy for providers to do business with us.  We take the guess work out of compounding. We are seen as trusted partners in improving clinical outcomes!

In just a short amount of time we have grown the business exponentially. We just built a new 3,500 sqft state of the art compounding lab with an impressive educational conference room. We realize we need to bring in some outside expertise to help us take our game to the next level.  We need to refine our operations, dial in our processes, and reevaluate how we approach filling scripts with a focus on maximizing efficiencies.  We realize there must be better ways to get things done than how we have organically operated over the last 5 years.  If we want to truly expand as planned, we need a process driven leader who can help us maximize our processes / staffing and to facilitate our integration of technology to enable us to scale accordingly. 

Growth has been great for us, but we realize we need to reengineer and want to bring in someone with the expertise to lead the charge.
