Profiles of today's local/global innovators and industry leaders.
KemPound Compounding and Repackaging Pharmacy is unique among other compounding and repackaging pharmacies, putting a premium on serving populations that need special care at the most affordable prices. KemPound's vision is elegantly simple: meet the needs of price-sensitive seniors and other income-sensitive or socially-marginalized patients with quality and 24-hour delivery. It's a formula that has helped KemPound become the go-to compounding partner for a growing list of pharmacies and pharmacists across Alberta. KemPound focuses on providing combination therapy to seniors for medication adherence and improved chronic disease management; low-cost drug alternatives for marginalized populations; low-cost drug alternatives for Indigenous populations; and the unique needs of gender and sexual diverse people. KemPound assures the highest quality with the lowest prices, which gives them a distinct competitive advantage in a price-conscious category.
Licensed by the Alberta College of Pharmacy, KemPound Compounding and Repackaging Pharmacy is a 1000 sq ft, Level B standalone, nonsterile laboratory in Edmonton that supplies every non-sterile, non-hazardous, compounding fomulation, including formulations for creams, capsules, gummies, ointments, suppositories, suspensions, and troches/lozenges. Orders can be taken by phone and fax.
