Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program offered by Mercy Health St. Charles Hospital in Oregon, Ohio, a suburb of Toledo, Ohio. We are pleased you have taken time to learn more about our residency program. Mercy Health St. Charles Hospital started its residency as a shared residency between St. Charles Hospital and St. Vincent Medical Center in July of 2004. In July of 2016 our program transitioned to two separate residency programs, offering opportunities to experience rotations at either location. We have continued to grow, expanding to two residency positions at St. Charles in July 2019. 

Mercy Health St. Charles Hospital is a Level III trauma facility with our large Behavioral Health Center on site. St. Charles provides a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient care, including a homelike maternity center, acute inpatient rehabilitation services, wound and pain clinic, cardiac rehab and heart failure clinic, women’s health center and a medication management service. Pharmacy services include decentralized clinical pharmacists, specialized behavioral health and emergency medicine pharmacists and outpatient medication management services. With a modern facility, St. Charles takes a leadership role in providing quality care and community development.

Our mission is to extend the compassionate ministry of Jesus by improving the health and well-being of our communities while bringing good help to those in need, especially people who are poor, dying and underserved. Pharmacy works towards this mission by providing excellent care to all patients with the goal of achieving the best medication-related outcomes possible. The goals of our PGY 1 program are to build on the Doctor of Pharmacy education and outcomes to contribute to the development of pharmacists responsible for medication-related care of patients, eligible for board certification and eligible for post-graduate year two (PGY 2) pharmacy residency training.
