Ryan Bouchard, PharmD

Regional Manager of Operations, Northeast Region

Hi, I’m Ryan Bouchard and I am the Regional Manager of Operations for HealthDirect’s Eastern Region pharmacies.  I graduated with my PharmD from Albany College of Pharmacy in 2008.  From day one I have been interested in management and developing people and teams.  I started with Walgreens managing a busy 24 hour location in Springfield, Illinois.  From there my wife (who is also a pharmacist) and I decided to move back to upstate New York as we were starting a family.  After moving back, I served as Clinical Manager for the Eastern Division of Rite Aid covering 375 store locations.  My interest then shifted to long-term care when I took a position as the Director of Operations for Colonial Pharmacy LTC in Whitesboro, New York. 

In May of 2017 Colonial Pharmacy LTC was acquired by HealthDirect, and the integration into the HealthDirect culture has been amazing!  I’m proud to work for an employee-owned and operated organization that allows for advancement both within our organization and within the KPH family of pharmacies.  I stayed on as Facility Manager/Supervising Pharmacist for the Whitesboro location and shortly after moved to our Syracuse, New York location to be the Supervising Pharmacist for our largest HealthDirect location.  It was there that I learned that when trying to drive positive outcomes one thing will always hold true: the individual must be placed at the center of care, and it is up to us to give our clients the support to help these individuals thrive.  As Regional Manager I am focused on developing a team that provides superior care to our clients, with a personalized approach in every interaction.  I’m excited to oversee our continued growth as an organization and look forward to what the future will bring.  

– Ryan
