Women Pharmacist Day Kathy, Kemi, Cindy 

Women Pharmacist Day, October 12th - Executive Pharmacy Leadership Spotlights

Cindy Williams, Chief Pharmacy Officer, Kathy Koehl, System Director for Pharmacy Clinical Services, and Kemi Olatunji, System Director for Acute Care Pharmacy Services.

On Women Pharmacist Day, we celebrate three influential pharmacist leaders following in the footsteps of Dr. Gloria Niemeyer Francke, the first CEO of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (who this day honors because of her advancements in pharmacy practice and improved patient outcomes). They have individually and collectively contributed to pharmacy practice advancement through participation in local and national pharmacy organizations, community health events, creation of a pharmacy technician ladder and recently leading the COVID-19 vaccination response. Riverside Health System benefits from their expertise as evidenced by development and promotion of clinical and operational pharmacy services contributing to the patient-centered Riverside Care Difference the pharmacy service lines provide daily.

Happy Pharmacy Week! Did you know that the inpatient pharmacy has a clean room where your patient’s sterile products are individually prepared by highly trained pharmacy technicians and pharmacists? This newly renovated space requires specific garbing, cleaning, and disinfection procedures to prevent bacterial growth and maintain safety for patients receiving medications.

It’s National Pharmacy Technician Day! Pharmacy technicians provide invaluable contributions to patient health, safety and are an integral part of our health care team. Pharmacy technicians are typically found delivering much needed medications throughout the hospital, keeping our drug supply intact, ensuring our automated dispensing machines are functioning, or helping troubleshoot medication discrepancies. We are fortunate to have specialized technicians within our workforce at RRMC who help lead pharmacy enterprise initiatives. Thank you, technicians, for all you do!
