Beaufort Memorial Hospital has named Khang H. Pham, Pharm.D. as its new Director of Pharmacy Services following a national search to fill the position left open by the passing of the former head of the department. In his new position, Pham is responsible for the operation of the hospital’s pharmacy services, including strategic planning, day-to-day operations, pharmaceutical care, clinical and distributive services, financial and personnel management and legal responsibility. BMH Pharmacy Services encompasses both inpatient and ambulatory pharmacy locations and services.
Pham, who immigrated to the United States from Vietnam in 1995, earned his Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of South Carolina – College of Pharmacy in 2005. He began his career as an oncology clinical pharmacist at Bon Secours/St. Francis Hospital in Greenville and Gibbs Cancer Center in Spartanburg. He went on to work for two years in the pharmacy corporate office of Novant Health in Charlotte, NC. In April 2012, Pham joined Beaufort Memorial as an oncology clinical pharmacist specialist. A year later, he was promoted to Pharmacy Clinical Coordinator. Pham had been serving as interim director since the death of Frank Miriello in December.
“Frank was the best mentor I’ve ever had,” Pham said of his late boss. “I’m so proud to be able to continue his legacy.”
