Patrick Gerhardt: VP of Operations

Patrick Gerhardt, PharmD, came to OurPharma in 2021 from Optum Compounding Services in Phoenix, Arizona. In his time at Optum, he served as Lead Pharmacist for two years before being promoted to Director of Operations. Before joining Optum, he started his pharmacy career with Walgreens where he worked as a pharmacy manager for 8 years. As a pharmacy manager in the community setting, Patrick learned the foundations of providing exceptional care to patients and developed an interest in applying his management skills to other pharmacy operations. At Optum, he took advantage of opportunities to improve processes by leading diverse teams in strategic planning, facility operations, and project and vendor management. As OurPharma continues to evolve as a leader in 503b outsourcing and beyond, Patrick is excited to bring his experience in operations and quality systems to the OurPharma team.
