SCA Pharma Partners With Bausch Advanced Technologies to Provide Free Hand Sanitizer to First Responders and Front-Line Healthcare Workers in Connecticut

SCA Pharma partners with Bausch Advanced Technologies to provide free hand sanitizer to first responders and front-line healthcare workers in Connecticut


SCA Pharma, partnering with Bausch Advanced Technologies, has compounded more than 2,500 containers of alcohol-based hand sanitizer now being distributed at no cost to first responders and front-line healthcare workers in Connecticut fighting the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Hundreds of 100ml-sized containers already have been distributed to first response units located in Windsor, Simsbury, and Bloomfield. The rest of the 2,500 containers will be distributed to several COVID-19 field hospitals with the help of the state Department of Consumer Protection (DCP) and the National Guard.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently allowed for the temporary compounding of alcohol-based hand sanitizer products in response to the shortage caused by the nation’s COVID-19 public health emergency. SCA Pharma, based in Windsor, teamed with Bausch Advanced Technologies in Clinton to do what both companies do best to support the community.

“Our community’s first responders and front-line medical personnel literally are risking their lives daily to save patients and to try to contain a virus that threatens all of us,” said Milton Boyer, CEO of SCA Pharma. “SCA Pharma greatly appreciates their brave efforts, and hope these needed supplies help them continue to fight the good fight.”

SCA Pharma is an FDA 503B outsourcing facility providing the highest quality sterile admixtures and pre-filled syringes. Licensed in all 50 states, SCA Pharma specializes in preparing sterile pharmaceuticals customized for hospital pharmacies and healthcare facilities nationwide.

Headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas, SCA Pharma has two state-of-the-art production facilities in both Arkansas and Connecticut.
