Cesar Benavidez, Pharmacy Technician at Hartley Medical, has been a crucial part of Hartley’s pharmaceutical compounding team for over four years. With vast training from the Pharmacy Technician Training Institute, Cesar has invaluable knowledge of both sterile and non-sterile compounding.

At Hartley Medical, Cesar uses optimal sterilization and compounding techniques to produce the highest-quality compounded product and, under the supervision of the pharmacist in charge, contributes to batch production and performs quality assurance activities.

“Hartley always asks, “˜How can we improve?'” says Cesar. “The company desires to explore new ideas and evolving techniques and methods to provide the best products for patients.”

Cesar is originally from Modesto, California, but lived in New York for 9 years and was a full-time minister who was involved with production of Bibles and spiritual literature. Cesar’s genuine care for people is a major contributor to his scrutinizing focus on patient-safety.
