Welcome to the Department of Pharmacy at Wake Forest Baptist Health!

Thank you for taking time to learn about our people and services. 

Over 350 administrators, pharmacists, and technicians provide comprehensive pharmacy services spanning the continuum of care across multiple patient populations. WFBH has a long history of clinical excellence and innovation in pharmacy practice.  Today the department provides decentralized clinical services to more than 37 inpatient services and a variety of ambulatory clinics.  Pharmacists and technicians partner to ensure safe transitions of care during patient admission and discharge and assist patients in accessing pharmaceutical care. 

Multiple technologies are leveraged throughout the department to improve safety, efficiency, and effectiveness in medication distribution, hazardous medication compounding, and community pharmacy services.  Several industry partnerships have been developed which allows the department to create new electronic and robotic tools to further advance the practice model.

In the ambulatory setting the department provides traditional and specialty pharmacy services to established patients in clinics, discharged patients, and employees. The department also has a home infusion pharmacy which provides home TPN, antibiotic, and chemotherapy services.   The department also provides infusion pharmacy services to six hematology/oncology specialty clinics scattered throughout the region.

Education is core to the mission of the department.  Pharmacists serve as preceptors for 8 pharmacy residency programs and offer experiential training for Doctor of Pharmacy students from Wingate and Campbell Universities.  The department is also a training site for several local pharmacy technician certification programs. WFBH pharmacists also direct the pharmacy curricula for the Wake Forest School of Medicine Medical School and PA programs and provide numerous lectures to students in both programs.

WFBH pharmacists are an integral part of many medical center initiatives.  One example is WFBH’s highly recognized antibiotic stewardship program, CAUSE, which has been operational since 2000.  The department was also awarded ASHP’s Best Practice Award in 2014 for its role in the medical center’s initiatives to improve sepsis care.
