Please call us to arrange a site visit to see for yourself these reasons that make us different:
Hartley Medical was founded in 1979 by Charles B. Stuart. In 1985, William Stuart introduced sterile compounding of high-quality pharmaceuticals for infusion therapy clients. In the ensuing years, we established ourselves as among the most successful and professionally distinguished pharmacies in the state of California and in the Western United States. We now serve hundreds of leading pain physicians and premier health care institutions across the nation with a 30+ year tradition of excellence.
With over 30 years of experience serving patients, clinics, and sub-acute hospitals, William is among the leading national experts in the field of intra-spinal therapies. Trained as a pharmacist at the University of Arizona, William spent the early part of his career as a specialist in parenteral therapy. In 1996, he observed significant deficiencies in the traditional treatment of pain management with oral medication. He was inspired to create truly unique "leading edge" pain management programs for the optimization of patient treatments. William has led Hartley from a western regional pharmacy covering seven states to a national pharmacy.
Our staff is composed of dedicated, extraordinary individuals who understand our mission to provide the highest quality pharmaceuticals with scientific innovation, exemplary service and authentic compassion. Everyone operates under clearly defined policies and procedures.
All compounding personnel are fully trained and are certified bi-annually in aseptic technique as well as emphasis on accurate compounding of medications. Personnel are required to adhere to proper gowning as well as hand sanitation, gloving policies and procedures immediately prior to entering the sterile preparation area and during the compounding process.
