Welcome to The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy & Compounding Centre, Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Hours: Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm CLOSED Weekends & Stat Holidays

The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy & Compounding Centre was opened in 2003. We are a full service retail pharmacy located in the main mall of Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

At The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy & Compounding Centre, we offer the services of a traditional dispensary along with the unique services of our prescription compounding centre.

Prescription Compounding is the art and science of preparing custom medications from raw ingredients. This allows us to provide medications which are not currently commercially available in order to meet the unique needs of our patients and their physicians.

Our pharmacy is a member of the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA), an association which provides us with education and a wealth of knowledge and research in the area of compounding.

Our staff members have received extensive training in the preparation of our products through PCCA and we believe in providing consistent, quality products and services to all of our patients. We work closely with other Health Care Professionals to ensure that the needs of our patients are being met.
