We have an exciting opportunity as a Clinical Pharmacist within our Lower Mainland Pharmacy Services located at Heartwood Centre for Women and Forensic Psychiatric Hospital where you can showcase your clinical hospital pharmaceutical skills!


Our model of care is strongly routed in trauma informed and evidence based substance use and mental health treatment. We work largely from “first stage” approach to trauma recovery - establishing safety, living in a safe environment. We take a gendered approach to programming due to the unique needs and experiences of women who struggle with substance use and mental health. As a provincial, tertiary program over 60% of our clients identify as having experienced trauma upon admission to Heartwood. Many of these women have been victimized by men; therefore, offering a safe treatment environment that encourages not just physical safety, but emotional safety is essential and in alignment with first stage trauma recovery. Heartwood only hires women into our direct care roles in order to foster the creation of a safe environment, which results in better treatment outcomes. We are looking for a pharmacist who can become a very integrated member of the care team and provide frequent direct care to clients.
