MissionThe mission of the Missouri Society of Health-System Pharmacists is to provide education, leadership and advocacy to support our members in helping people make the best use of medications.
HistoryThe Missouri Society of Health System Pharmacists has been a voice for hospital pharmacists since the early 1970's. The Society has had an emphasis on providing educational programming, developing guidelines for hospital pharmacy practice and promoting medication safety across the state. MSHP has a history of working with other pharmacy organizations and health care providers to improve the health of Missouri citizens. The organization today, is an active member of the Missouri Pharmacy Coalition. MSHP is proud of the pharmacists who have helped lead the organization. Two notable MSHP Presidents, Tom J. Garrison (1974-1976) and T. Mark Woods (1997-1998) both went on to become President of the American Society of Health System Pharmacists. The organization has progressed from its inception in the early 1970's to becoming incorporated in 1982 and representing more than 500 members today.
