Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) is pleased to announce the addition of a new leader to the Inpatient Pharmacy. Chad Gleghorn was recently named the Inpatient Pharmacy Director.
Gleghorn brings 12 years of retail pharmacy experience to his new position, most recently as Pharmacy Manager at West Plains Health Mart Pharmacy. Gleghorn obtained his Doctorate of Pharmacy from the Saint Louis College of Pharmacy. He completed clinical residencies at Mercy Hospitals in Springfield, Mountain View and Saint Louis, John Cochran V.A. Medical Center in St. Louis, Walgreens, and OMC.
