I work at the Pharmacy Drug Distribution Centre in Langley as a Pharmacy Production Services Manager, leading a dynamic team dedicated to the seamless provision of oral and intravenous (IV) medications across 13 hospital sites. Together, we navigate challenges that may come from the pharmaceutical landscape, ensuring the reliable delivery of approximately 50,000 doses daily.

I am immensely proud to lead such a capable and dedicated team of pharmacy technicians and assistants. Together, we have not only met but exceeded expectations in the fast-paced and demanding field of production-based pharmacy. The unwavering commitment, exceptional teamwork, and adaptability of each team member have played a pivotal role in our success. I look forward to continuing this journey with a team that consistently raises the bar.

The use of cutting-edge automation technology has been a game-changer for us. Despite the ever-evolving landscape of pharmacy practices, our team has embraced and mastered these technologies to enhance our production capabilities. This proficiency has not only increased our productivity but has also positioned us as a highly skilled and adaptable group within the realm of production-based pharmacy work.

Our dedication to excellence is evident in the seamless coordination and execution of our responsibilities. From packaging to dispatch, each team member plays a crucial role in maintaining the precision and accuracy required in our line of work. The level of professionalism and skill exhibited by the team has undoubtedly contributed to the overall success of our operations.

In times of adversity, our team shines. Whether overcoming transportation challenges as seen during the recent snow fall, navigating staffing shortages, or troubleshooting automation issues, our collective determination and problem-solving abilities have proven to be invaluable. We tackle each obstacle as an opportunity to learn and grow, further solidifying our reputation as a resilient and effective unit.

We have an exceptional team. One of the primary pillars of our success is our unwavering commitment to teamwork. In the face of transportation obstacles, staffing shortages, and automation issues, our team has consistently demonstrated exceptional collaboration and resilience. Each member brings a unique set of skills to the table, contributing to a harmonious and efficient work environment.
