Hourican named CVS Pharmacy president

By David Salazar - 04/16/2018
Kevin Hourican has been named president of CVS Pharmacy. He takes the helm of CVS Health’s 10,000-pharmacy retail business, charged with leading CVS Health’s delivery of innovative health solutions to make the healthcare experience simpler, more responsive and more affordable, the company said. He succeeds Helena Foulkes, who recently joined Hudson’s Bay as CEO, and he had been serving as head of CVS Pharmacy while the company looked for a successor.

“We’re pleased to have Kevin at the helm of CVS Pharmacy,” CVS Health COO Jon Roberts said. “He has a proven track record of bringing innovative new programs and services to our patients and a strong ability to lead our retail pharmacy team. We believe that Kevin will bring his extensive consumer and retail skills to our front store business as well and I have no doubt he will be able to further transform our stores to become the front door of health care for consumers, patients and caregivers.”

Hourican — who joined CVS Health in 2012 — was most recently CVS Pharmacy’s executive vice president of retail pharmacy, overseeing the chain’s retail pharmacy business and partnering to deliver such solutions as the ScriptPath prescription management system and the recently introduced Rx Savings Finder, as well as medication adherence programs and the roll out of home delivery. Before that, he was CVS Pharmacy’s senior vice president of operations for the East division, with oversight of roughly 5,000 stores in 21 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Hourican assumes leadership as CVS Health is in the midst of its pending acquisition of health insurer Aetna, which executives have said is aimed at making the CVS Pharmacy chain the new front door to health care, serving as a hub where patients can better understand their health coverage and access essential services.

Hourican also has held leadership positions at Macy’s and Sears Roebuck. He has a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from Pennsylvania State University.
