Dartmouth Health Chief Pharmacy Officer
Staci A. Hermann was named Chief Pharmacy Officer in November 2018. She had been Interim Chief Pharmacy Officer since April 2018. In this role, she leads and provides executive leadership for all of Dartmouth Health's Pharmacy business lines: Hospital, Infusion & Research, Retail/Specialty, Clinical Ambulatory, ACO/PBM Pharmacy Services, Pharmacy Supply Chain/340B Programs and regional Pharmacy NEAH programs spanning across all Dartmouth Health sites. Additionally, she is responsible for and provides strategic oversight and direction of pharmacy programs across the Dartmouth Health system (member entities of the system).
During her time at Dartmouth Health, Hermann has expanded pharmacy services which have resulted in better patient care/access, and increased the financial contribution margin for the organization through such initiatives as opening the only 24/7 retail pharmacy in northwestern New Hampshire, expansion of the specialty pharmacy program, expansion of the ambulatory pharmacy programs, expansion of the pharmacy residency programs and expansion of the pharmacist collaborative practice agreements. This work has resulted in the pharmacy division being the third-largest revenue-generating program for the system.
Before stepping into this role, Hermann was the System Director of Clinical Pharmacy Services at Dartmouth Health. In that role, she managed the System Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, specifically focusing on system clinical integration and formulary alignment across the system. In addition, she oversaw the Clinical Pharmacy Program growth in both the Ambulatory clinic space, inpatient setting, and pharmacy residency/student programs. She also provided clinical guidance to the retail and specialty pharmacy programs. Hermann also collaborated with Human Resources to ensure formulary/policy alignment between the organization and the benefits program.
Prior to joining Dartmouth Health, Hermann served as the Assistant Director of Acute Care Services and Interim Director of Pharmacy Services for the Lahey Clinic Medical Center in Burlington, MA, the flagship hospital for the Lahey Health system. She had direct management and oversight of Lahey's inpatient operational and clinical services, including overseeing the clinical relationships with Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Northeastern University Schools of Pharmacy and residency programs in Boston, Massachusetts. In her interim role, she also had oversight of the ambulatory pharmacy practices, pharmacy supply chain and contracting.
Hermann received her Doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, Rhode Island. She also completed a year of post-graduate residency training at Aurora Healthcare in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, followed by a two-year focused post-graduate residency training in pharmacy administration while completing a Master of Science in Pharmacy Administration from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. She continues to remain active in Vizient University Health System Consortium Pharmacy Network committees and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists committees. Hermann was also recognized and named a Carol Emmott Fellow in 2021.
