PAH – home of the first hospital pharmacy in the original 13 US colonies, established in 1752 – has been granted a three-year accreditation for its Postgraduate Year One (PGY1) Pharmacy residency program by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). The ASHP is a national professional organization of nearly 40,000 members, including pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and students who provide patient care services in hospitals, health systems, and ambulatory clinics. The ASHP has been at the forefront of efforts to improve medication use and enhance patient safety for the past 70 years.

“This is very exciting, well-deserved news for our Pharmacy team and residents,” said Suzanne Y. Brown, MS, RPh, director of Pharmacy Services. “Achieving this new milestone reaffirms our commitment to our interdisciplinary approach of providing optimal, safe, and effective medication management for our patients at all times.”
