Dean's Executive Forum Speaker
Curt Passafume, Jr. (BS 1980)
System Vice President for Pharmacy Services
Over a 37-year career that began with his graduation from the Purdue College of Pharmacy along with obtaining an MBA in Healthcare Management from Indiana Wesleyan University, Curt Passafume has focused his practice in the areas of fiscal management, professional development, strategic planning, and leadership. He has held professional leadership roles at a number of Fortune 100 organizations and now serves as the chief pharmacy officer for OhioHealth in Columbus, Ohio, and surrounding regions.
While his two children, daughter Maegan and son Nathan, have launched their own careers and have successfully landed, Curt and his wife, Jody, continue to enjoy discovering central Ohio and the rest of the country as time and energy allows. One of his guiding principles since his early days at Purdue is “your success is determined by the success of those you teach and lead”, and this remains the ruler by which he measures his professional and personal journey as a servant leader.
Curt’s professional affiliations include ASHP, ACHE, OSHP (a prior Timothy Moore Management awardee), COSHP, and OPA. He is a current member of The Ohio State Board of Pharmacy and NABP where he currently chairs the statewide oversight committee for the developing medical marijuana program. He is an active member of a number of national pharmacy advisory boards and holds an adjunct faculty appointment with The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy where he teaches health system pharmacy finance, budgeting, and fiscal management within the HSPA residency program. He is the current RPD for both ASHP accredited HSPA residency programs based at OhioHealth.
