Thanh Pham, New Pharmacy Team Leader-Clinical Operations

Thanh-PhamCongratulations to Thanh Pham, MBA, BS, RPh, who was promoted to the Pharmacy Team Leader-Clinical Operations position at PAH. Thanh first joined Pennsylvania Hospital in 2004 as a clinical pharmacist. His prior and diverse experience includes working as a clinical pharmacist at a large commercial health plan, a national retail drug chain, as well as a local university-based health system. 

“During his time with us, Thanh has been an integral team member participating in many initiatives including the BOOST program to reduce congestive heart failure readmissions and pharmacist-managed Core Measure compliance,” said Suzanne Y. Brown, MS, RPh, director of Pharmacy Services.

Thanh has demonstrated a record of leadership both interdepartmentally as well as across disciplines, as he was instrumental in the development of the hospital’s Alaris pump library and most recently was selected as one of the Educational Leads for the Knowledge Based Charting enterprise-wide implementation. “Thanh’s firm understanding of inpatient and outpatient operations, coupled with his depth of knowledge in clinical, technical and operational initiatives, enhance the Pharmacy leadership team as the department continues to offer expanded services to our patients and the hospital,” added Brown. 

Thanh’s responsibilities will include coordinating clinical and operational support for the department; ensuring daily operational services meet expectations; facilitating communication and education within the department; and participating in performance improvement initiatives related to medication management.

Thanh received his Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from Temple University and his MBA from Rosemont College.
