Institutional Pharmacies of Louisiana (IPL) is focused on providing the lowest priced, real-world solutions for a variety of facilities within the long-term care industry. We are a single-source solution that supplies acute care institutions with high quality pharmaceuticals, intravenous (IV) drugs and medical supplies. And just as importantly, we offer superior customer service, the convenience of on-demand delivery, registered pharmacists on call 24/7 and much more.
Located in Scott, Louisiana, IPL was founded in 2003 by owner Robert Sonnier and Eric Vidrine – who both gained many years of invaluable experience at several national pharmaceutical companies before establishing their own business. From the very beginning, IPL was dedicated to creating new, better and more cost-efficient ways to meet the unique pharmaceutical, and medical supply needs of medical institutions. Since its founding, IPL has grown from a small three-person operation to become a thriving regional pharmacy with more than 25 dedicated professionals on staff.
IPL serves medical institutions throughout Louisiana – ranging from nursing homes to long-term acute care facilities(LTAC), psychiatric hospitals, physical rehabilitation hospitals and correctional facilities. We are dedicated to partnering with our customers to provide customized solutions, one-on-one service and hands-on attention to doctors, nurses and administrative personnel. Our team has also earned an outstanding reputation for being easy to work with, reliable and professional.
As a closed-door pharmacy, IPL focuses solely on serving medical institutions – so we understand the specialized needs and challenges of these facilities. Our total commitment to service and focus on cost containment are two of the main factors that make IPL stand out from our competitors. Other advantages include same-day delivery six days a week, twice-daily delivery when appropriate, and a pharmacy that is staffed seven days a week. In addition, we are one of the few pharmacies in the region that offers automated Omnicel™ medication cabinets – and we also feature the latest in software technology including FrameworkLinkTM software for absolute efficiency in real-time patient care.
It all adds up to the most cost-effective, secure and reliable pharmaceutical services in the long-term care industry. We invite you to contact us today to learn more about how IPL can provide customizable solutions for your unique needs.
