Alexander Cao, Pharm D. (So Bay/Long Beach)
I currently serve as the Area Pharmacy Director for the Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles Medical Center. I’ve worked for Kaiser Permanente for 20 years. My pharmacy leadership journey began when I graduated from USC Pharmacy School in 2001 and completed a residency with the VA Greater Los Angeles / USC a year later. Shortly after residency, I worked at USC as a clinical Coordinator at the Community Pharmacies on both the main campus and at Plaza Pharmacy by the Keck Medical Center. I left USC for an ambulatory care pharmacist position at Kaiser Permanente (KP) Los Angeles Medical Center doing HIV/Infectious Disease. Later on, embarked on my first management position as an Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Supervisor at the same location, where I had daily operation responsibilities for a variety of services and programs such as Anticoag clinic, Renal, Oncology, Asthma, CHF, and Pain clinic. I then went onto KP Fontana where I was promoted to the role of Clinical Operations Manager. In this role I had total oversight for all clinical Ambulatory pharmacy services and Drug Utilization Management. About four years past and I was given the chance to take on another promoted position as the Area Pharmacy Director at the KP South Bay Medical Center. In this role I served as the Senior Medical Center leader in charge of all Pharmacy services (Ambulatory Care, Outpatient/Community Pharmacies, and the Inpatient/Hospital Pharmacy). As of the last 3 years, I have served as the Area Pharmacy Director for the KP Los Angeles Medical Center.
