The Neighbourhood Pharmacy Association of Canada on Monday named Karl Frank, divisional director, Bayshore Specialty Rx, as the new vice chair of the Association.

"On behalf of our board of directors and all our members and associates, I want to congratulate Karl on his appointment as vice chair," Justin Bates, CEO Neighbourhood Pharmacies, said. "Through strong leadership from Karl and the rest of the board, we will be in the position to demonstrate pharmacy as an economic growth driver and a key part of Canada's healthcare system."

"I am pleased to be named by the board as the vice chair and to support the vision of Neighbourhood Pharmacies as we work towards enhancing the delivery of healthcare to Canadians through pharmacy," Frank said. "Our members and associates look to us to provide leadership in this time of transition to become more of an integral part of the communities we serve."

Frank has led the growth and development of Bayshore Specialty Rx and oversees the operations, including call center and patient assistance services, wholesale and a national pharmacy network as well as the national infusion clinic network and nursing services. He is also responsible for payor relationships, business development and marketing.

Prior to joining Bayshore, Frank was vice president pharmacy merchandising and operations at Loblaw. He is a graduate of the University of Alberta's pharmacy program.

Frank was appointed by the board of the Neighbourhood Pharmacy Association of Canada at its meeting on April 6. He joined the board in 2017, and his term as vice chair will run for 1 year.
