Washington, DC – Phil Fogg, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Milwaukie, OR-based Marquis Companies and Consonus Health Care — currently serving on the Board of the American Health Care Association (AHCA) — will serve as the new Chairman of the Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition (SCPC), the Washington D.C.-based advocacy organization announced today. SCPC is the only national organization dedicated exclusively to the specific legislative and regulatory interests of America’s increasingly important long term care (LTC) pharmacy sector and the elderly patients served in skilled nursing and residential care settings across the nation.

Serving on the new SCPC Executive Committee are Vice-Chairman Fred Burke, CEO, Guardian Pharmacy Services, based in Atlanta, GA; Treasurer Jeffrey M. Stamps, R.Ph., CEO, Remedi Senior Care, in Baltimore, MD; and Secretary Robert Warnock, R.Ph., Senior Vice President of Pharmacy Services, Pruitt Health, Norcross, GA. Also serving as new Board Members are Greg Weishar, CEO of Louisville, KY-based PharMerica Corp (NYSE: PMC); Kent Abbott, President and CEO, Pharmcare, based in Hydro, OK; Jill Krueger, President and CEO, Symbria, Inc., Warrenville, IL; Sam Mahfouz, Managing Member, FusionCare Pharmacy, Alexandria, LA; and Steve Wilson, President, Brockie Health Care, York, PA.

“LTC pharmacies’ unique clinical and consultative offerings are increasingly important to the broader long term and post-acute care policy equation,” Fogg stated. “Moving forward into 2017, our organizational priority will be to ensure lawmakers and regulators have a growing understanding of LTC pharmacies’ tremendous clinical and consultative value in terms of both improving quality of care and patient outcomes, and ensuring Medicare resources are spent efficiently.” Fogg praised the leadership of his predecessor, Founding Board Chairman Michael G. Bronfein, in helping to quickly establish SCPC as an effective, growing advocacy organization in Washington.
