The Importance of Community

At Island Pharmacy, we have locations all across Vancouver Island in order to serve you and your community– but our dedicated compounding pharmacy here in View Royal is the one that started our dedication to our community.

Why? Because, as the best place to receive compounded medications for yourself, your loved ones, and even your pets, our View Royal store embodies what we do best: caring for you.

Firstly, What is a Compounding Pharmacy?

The role of a compounding pharmacy in a community is to create customized medications to better match the needs of their patients– whether that be certain dosages, certain textures, or even certain ingredients. Compounding encompasses both combining medications and altering them.

More specifically, compounding is the process of combining, mixing, or altering ingredients to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient– person or animal. Compounding facilities are inspected in accordance with the safety and quality standards of each province.

The Difference Community Care Makes

Here at Island Pharmacy, we compound medications with community care.

Community care includes:

  • Ensuring that the staff who work at each of our nine Vancouver Island locations also live in that specific area, meaning that your pharmacist is also your neighbor
  • Offering medication delivery and nurse-assisted home care
  • Providing education alongside prescription refills
  • And offering routine vaccinations to keep our community safe

No matter where on the island you live, you can rest easy knowing that we here at Island Pharmacy aren’t simply professionals: we’re also genuinely invested in you and your long-term health.
