Joey Wilkinson has joined HopeWest in Grand Junction as a clinical pharmacist.
Wilkinson will work with hospice and palliative care programs as well as what’s planned as the Program of All-Inclusive Care of the Elderly (PACE).
“A pharmacist in this setting can help with many areas, such as symptom management, serving as an authoritative resource with use of medications, managing the use of medication across settings and education and medication counseling,” said Georgia Rock, executive vice president of clinical services at HopeWest
Wilkinson brings 15 years of experience to his position. He graduated from the University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy in 2003. He completed his primary residency with University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics, where he also completed a specialty residency in solid organ transplant pharmacy.
