Facility and Department Overview
The Brooklyn Hospital Center, Brooklyn’s oldest hospital, is a clinical affiliate of The Mount Sinai Hospital. A prestigious teaching hospital that is dedicated to providing outstanding acute care in a state-of-the-art delivery environment, the hospital is located in Downtown Brooklyn, merely minutes from Manhattan. A major transportation hub makes the hospital easily accessible by car, bus, railroad, and subway. The hospital is full accredited from The Joint Commission.
The Department of Pharmacy Services is a dynamic department with a progressive clinical focus. The 300 bed facility is staffed by sixteen pharmacists, ten pharmacy residents, six interns, eight pharmacotherapy specialists, four clinical pharmacy educators, technicians, messengers, and a dedicated management team, the department participates in all aspects of medication safety and dispensing using state of the art electronic medical records, CPOE, and other clinical software. Dispensing services are achieved with a balance of professional, technical, and automated services, including a complete intravenous admixture service, TPN compounder, and robotics.
The department maintains around-the-clock drug information and consultative services, including: pharmacokinetic dosing, ambulatory care clinics, nutritional support service, IV to PO substitution, automatic therapeutic substitution under protocol, antimicrobial stewardship program, and response to all cardiac arrest and rapid response calls. We are affiliated with neighboring Long Island University’s Arnold & Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and Touro College of Pharmacy. Our accredited Pharmacy Residency Program includes five PGY-1 residents, a PGY-2 resident in Infectious Diseases, a PGY-2 resident in Emergency Medicine, and three PGY-2 residents in Ambulatory Care. The overall mission of these programs is to afford residents the opportunity to gain experience and knowledge in a pharmacotherapy model that functions as a think tank and proving ground for new programs and services. This model promotes the concept of collaborative drug therapy management in a direct patient care setting within the hospital and outpatient clinics; a model that has been recognized throughout New York State and by national surveyors and as being “ahead of the curve”.
For consideration, interested candidates should contact Robert DiGregorio, PharmD, Sr. Director of Pharmacotherapy Services at (718) 250-8182 or via email address email@example.com.
