SAWTOOTH MOUNTAIN CLINIC WELCOMES JEREMY D. GERSPACHER AS CHIEF PHARMACIST FOR ITS IN-HOUSE PHARMACY

Gerspacher joins after serving several organizations as Pharmacist in California

 (GRAND MARAIS, MN – November 23, 2020) Sawtooth Mountain Clinic (SMC) announced the appointment of Jeremy D. Gerspacher, Pharm.D., as its first Pharmacist-in-Charge.  Gerspacher will be re-locating to Cook County from his most recent position as Pharmacist with Cardinal Health in Santa Rosa California.

“We are delighted to welcome Jeremy to Sawtooth Mountain Clinic where he will lead our pharmacy team,” said SMC Chief Executive Officer Kate Surbaugh, “We are fortunate to be able to recruit someone with Jeremy’s depth of experience and professionalism.  We encourage everyone in Cook County to welcome him.”

A native of Denver, Colorado, Gerspacher spent the early years of his career in financial services.  He graduated from the University of California San Francisco School of Pharmacy in 2014.  He has held positions as a pharmacist with Clinic Pharmacies LLC, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation Pharmacy, Carezone Pharmacy and at the Veteran Affairs Medical Center – all in the Bay Area in California.  He has also served on the Healthcare Technology faculty at the City College of San Francisco.

“I am so excited to be joining the team at Sawtooth Mountain Clinic,” said Gerspacher, “Since graduating, I have been fortunate to have worked in a broad range of pharmacy experiences ranging from retail, clinic work, in-patient hospital, and app-based pharmacy.  Pharmacy in a clinic setting is where I fit in best as I’m able to interact with providers and the patients to provide the best pharmacy care.   I am looking forward to applying those skills as the first Chief Pharmacist for Sawtooth Mountain Clinic.”

Gerspacher will be relocating to Cook County in the near future with his brand-new rescue Cocker/King Charles Spaniel, Daniel.  He is a self-described outdoor enthusiast who likes many winter sports.

Construction of the pharmacy at Sawtooth Mountain Clinic is nearing completion with plans to open fully staffed in early 2021.
