Pharmacy Careers at Memorial Healthcare System
Talk to Dorinda Segovia, Vice President of Pharmacy Services, and you will hear a story of career growth that is repeated time and time again within Memorial. It’s a story about opportunity, technology and the confidence to create the career you want.
Moving Pharmacy forward.
Segovia first moved to Memorial Healthcare System for the convenience of a shorter drive. Little did she know that this phase of her career journey would take her farther than she ever imagined.
“I had heard that Memorial was a great institution, full of potential,” she says. “It’s here that I was able to build upon an already existing state-of-the-art Pharmacy department with the full support of the hospital leadership”. “Together, we developed a post graduate pharmacy residency program, invested in the most innovative new technologies, decentralized some key clinical services, like anticoagulation and kinetics and implemented non-traditional roles for pharmacy technicians.”
“One of the things that stood out for me from the beginning, and still makes a difference today, is the level of collaboration at Memorial,” Segovia continues. “Our pharmacists are an integral part of the care team, participating in rounds, resuscitation codes and patient treatment plans. We work alongside physicians in critical care, internal medicine, oncology and transplant, and serve as a valuable resource in transitioning patients into other settings, including their home.”
Doing what we love.
Memorial hires Clinical Pharmacists, Specialists and Pharmacy Techs for both inpatient and outpatient roles in our decentralized hospital pharmacy, retail pharmacy sites, specialty and infusion pharmacy. Our automated IV and dispensing technologies ensure accurate and timely care, in alignment with our integrated health delivery system powered by Epic.
“Our advanced and integrated clinical practice model within Pharmacy offers advantages not easily found in all settings” states Segovia. “If you want to be an integral part of multi-disciplinary healthcare team, Memorial can give you that opportunity. In addition to competitive benefits, the pharmacy team members also enjoy ongoing continuing education and support for professional advancement. But, for me, what I love most of all is the place, the people, and the patient care we provide as South Florida’s go-to healthcare system.”
