Because patients should have the essential medicines they need when they need them. As a rapidly growing, entrepreneurial, nonprofit generic drug company created by hospital systems and philanthropies, Civica's mission is to reduce and prevent drug shortages while assuring quality generic medicines are accessible and affordable to everyone.

And recently, Civica contributed more than 2-million vials of essential medications to the strategic national stockpile.

Company Description:
Over the past two decades, shortages of generic, injectable drugs critical to the lifesaving work of hospitals in the United States have become commonplace. These drug shortages are so ubiquitous that hospitals and health care systems now maintain permanent drug shortage response teams that seek alternatives to unavailable drugs. As a result, time that hospital pharmacists, technicians, nurses and others would prefer to spend caring for patients is spent ensuring that the patients who most need short-supply drugs get whatever supply is available. Civica was created to reduce and prevent drug shortages and the price spikes that can accompany them. Its mission is to make quality generic medicines accessible and affordable to everyone.
