Our new Specialty Pharmacy is now open on-site for added convenience, quick turn-around and personalized care.
The experienced and highly-skilled admixture technicians at Compass Oncology work closely with our clinical staff to make sure each injectable dosage is precise and secure. All of the drugs administered at Compass Oncology are obtained through a state-of-the-art distribution center utilizing sophisticated e-pedigree technology to securely track and ensure their quality and safety. This distribution system has been recognized by the National Association of the Board of Pharmacy for its safety, innovation and sophistication. It was also one of the first to earn the coveted Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors (VAWD) accreditation.
And in Fall 2016 Compass Oncology opened our new Specialty Pharmacy.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are you offering in-office oral medication therapy?
Providing you with the most comprehensive treatment is our priority. Oral oncology drugs are different and require a level of specialization you may not find at your local pharmacy. Working closely with your doctor, we have the insight and expertise to know how your oral medications fit in with your treatment plan and how to manage side effects. In order for you to receive the most comprehensive, personalized care, it is to your benefit that your doctor can closely monitor your treatment and you can get all of your drugs as quickly and conveniently as possible. We are here to help!
What type of products do you fill?
We provide you with any self-administered or oral medications that you may need during the course of your chemotherapy and supportive therarpy.

We will also provide any additional oral medications that you can take at home, self-administered as directed by your doctor.
