Lisa Baird, PharmD, MS, MBA

VP, Pharmacy Operations

Lisa joined Ernest Health in 2005 as the first Director of Pharmacy at Northern Idaho Advanced Care Hospital, a long-term acute care hospital in Post Falls, Idaho. She has more than 36 years of combined professional and leadership experience in various pharmacy settings, including outpatient, home health, specialty medication management, and inpatient roles. As the Vice President of Pharmacy Operations, Lisa oversees pharmacy operations and supports interdisciplinary collaboration, maximizing pharmaceutical care and general outcomes for our patients.

Communication and education are essential for effective medication use. One of the most rewarding aspects of pharmacy practice is being a resource that can bridge gaps in those areas for our patients.

Lisa earned a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Oklahoma. She continued her studies at the University of Florida in Gainesville, where she received a doctor of pharmacy and a master’s degree in pharmaceutical outcomes and policy. She also completed her master of business administration at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida.

Outside of work, Lisa can be found exploring the outdoors with her family and a camera.
