Job Description

Founded in 1921, Straub Medical Center is a fully integrated nonprofit health care system with a 159-bed tertiary care hospital in Honolulu, a network of neighborhood clinics and a visiting specialist program that reaches throughout the state of Hawai‘i. With more than 300 employed or contracted physicians who are leaders in their fields, Straub provides its patients with expert diagnoses and treatments for more than 30 different medical specialties, including bone and joint, heart, cancer, endocrinology/diabetes, family medicine, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, internal medicine, women’s health, vascular and urology. Straub is home to the Pacific Region’s only multi-disciplinary burn treatment center. The hospital consistently brings new technologies and innovative medical practices to Hawai‘i, such as pioneering minimally invasive cardiac surgery and total joint replacement. In 2010, the American Heart Association recognized Straub in three areas of excellence: Coronary Artery Disease (Gold Award), Heart Failure (Silver Award) and Heart Attack (Bronze Award).

The Anticoagulation department provides comprehensive patient management, monitoring and instruction related to anticoagulation therapy. Anticoagulants are agents used for the treatment and prevention of many blood-clotting disorders including venous thrombosis, pulmonary emboli, mechanical heart valves, embolic stroke, atrial fibrillation and certain thrombophilias. Our highly trained anticoagulation professionals ensure that blood-clotting difficulties do not interfere with required medical attention so that patients feel safe and confident in our care.

As the Anticoagulation Pharmacist, you will help to ensure that the Pharmacy department at Straub provides outstanding pharmaceutical knowledge and services to our patients and their families. In this role, you will compound and dispense pharmaceuticals, supplies, medications and large and small volume parenterals.

We are looking for someone meticulous and attentive to pharmaceutical protocol, quality control and integrity, who shares our commitment to delivering the highest quality health care to Hawai‘i’s people.
