Addition of Ashburn pharmacy’s established customer base will enable Leesburg-based
PCAB™-accredited compounding pharmacy to broaden its presence in Northern Virginia
On October 22, The Compounding Center will acquire Medicap Pharmacy, allowing it to grow its local customer base while providing Medicap clients with the same level of caring, personalized service that it has extended to its own patients for more than 40 years.
Ten years after opening their integrative wellness and compounding pharmacy in Ashburn, Medicap Pharmacy founders Tom and Lori Ziegler will be relocating out of state to be closer to family. When deciding what to do with their business, their choice was easy.
“When we decided to make this move, we knew that The Compounding Center would take care of our customers in the same way we had,” explained Tom. “Since their pharmacy is very similar to ours, we’re confident that they’ll provide uninterrupted service to our patients so that they can have a very seamless transition.”
“While we’re sad that Tom and Lori are moving out of the area and closing Medicap Pharmacy, we’re honored that they’ve entrusted us with their clients’ care,” added Jay Gill, Pharm D and co-owner/director of business development of The Compounding Center. “We’ve had a wonderful relationship with their staff over the years, and will provide their customers with the same quality products and personalized attention that they enjoyed in Ashburn.”
Medicap Pharmacy’s last day of operation will be Saturday, Oct. 22. Over the weekend, all patient records will be securely transferred over to The Compounding Center so that they can begin servicing those customers on Oct. 24.
