South Miami Pharmacy was honored to be nominated as a finalist in the Showcase of Success at the annual Pharmacy Development Service (PDS) Conference in Orlando. The Showcase of Success highlights pharmacy entrepreneurs who have made great strides in growing their business in the past year.The following is South Miami Pharmacy’s entry in the showcase. This letter, written by CEO Armando Bardisa, delineates several of the new and successful developments that the company implemented in 2014. Using the tools acquired at last year’s Pharmacy Development Service conference, Mr. Bardisa and his staff learned new ways to develop both personally and professionally. These new skills also made it easier to track and measure the company’s progress, which is vitally important for a rapidly-growing business.
In 2014, the company expanded immensely, adding a 45% increase in new hires and developing a specialty division focused on HIV and RA. The pharmacy even outgrew its current location, and will be moving to a newer, larger facility this year.
