Samuel M. Costello, RPh, Owner at Legacy Compounding, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in pharmacy and compounding.

For nearly 50 years, Mr. Costello has provided superior service as a pharmacist. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in pharmacy from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama in 1967, he served his country with the United States Army for the next seven years, where he advanced to the rank of sergeant and served as an instructor in medical technology at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.

Mr. Costello founded the Austin Drug Company in 1973. After purchasing the Decatur Diagnostic Lab in 1992, he subsequently founded the Pill Box Pharmacy in 1994 and later opened a second location in Priceville. Mr. Costello was appointed as a member of the Alabama Board of Pharmacy from 1998 through 2002, for which he was appointed as the president in the latter year, and he has been named Pharmacist of the Year Award by the Alabama Pharmacy Association.

Mr. Costello has further prospered in compounding, the science of customizing medications to meet each patient’s specific needs, a standard means of providing prescription medications prior to the mass production of drugs. He has found success as the owner and operator of Legacy Compounding since 2018 and the co-owner of Premium Compounding for Veterinary Use since 2019.

Particularly proud of his compounding efforts, Mr. Costello cites the growth of his pharmacy business from one location to four among the greatest achievements of his career. In the coming years, he is hoping for the continued success of his retail and production firms and is looking forward to doing some traveling with his wife, Lee.
