Kantonsapotheke Zürich as the 2019 Facility of the Year Awards (FOYA) Overall Winner

Kantonsapotheke Zürich (KAZ) was awarded the Operational Excellence Award Category for its new compounding pharmacy for Canton Zürich Hospitals—a leap forward for hospital pharmacy compounding operations. The project demonstrates a transformational step in hospital compounding operations and establishes a new norm for future facilities in this important step of patient therapy.

The KAZ project replaced and integrated two outdated hospital pharmacies that had been unable to continue serving the progressive needs of the community and were occupying valuable and desirable space in the medical facility. The facility is highly flexible, adaptable and expandable to easily and quickly accommodate new functions, especially the rapidly emerging field of personalized medicine.

KAZ excels financially, technically, and operationally aiming to improve patient health by outlining crucial steps towards advancing pharmaceutical science and production especially regarding patient therapies. The project features training that will support the next generation of modern pharmaceutical professionals to incorporate GMP knowledge into systems and procedures daily.
