The pharmacists at The Pharmacy at HOPE got goody bags from the pharmacy tech staff during HOPE's staff appreciation recognition time this week. Pictured left to right are McKenzie Owens, clinical pharmacist; Richard Cox, Director of Pharmacy Services; Lindsey Watson, clinical pharmacist; and Kelsey White, staff pharmacist. HOPE loves our "Pharmily!"
The staff of the Pharmacy at HOPE honored our staff pharmacists this week in honor of National Pharmacist Day on Friday, January 12. The close-knit staff, which refers to itself as “the Pharmily,” used HOPE’s monthly staff appreciation time to give each pharmacist a gift bag and a Pharmacist’s Word Search Book.
The Pharmacy at HOPE opened in 2016 and has grown to ten staff members, consisting four pharmacists and six pharmacy technicians. It soon outgrew its original location in the building and moved across the lobby to a larger space. While HOPE patients enjoy the benefits of having pharmacy staff involved in their care plans, the Pharmacy at HOPE is available to everyone in the community, whether or not they are established patients at HOPE.
