Louis Sokos

Louis Sokos, B.S. Pharm., MBA, is Director of Allied Health Solutions, Specialty Pharmacy Services, at WVU Hospitals in in Morgantown, WV. He has been in this role since May 2014. Louis identified the need for the specialty pharmacy program in 2014 while he was in his current role as Assistant Director of Pharmacy for West Virginia University Hospitals. He identified an opportunity to better manage our specialty patients at WVU medicine due to the complicated nature of the business and the lack of clear communication and integration between outside specialty pharmacies, the WVU medicine providers and most importantly the patients. Louis has grown the specialty pharmacy operation from an employee count of one (himself) to the current number of employees which is 45 as of April 2019. The specialty pharmacy employs operational pharmacists, clinical pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, insurance specialists, business associates and couriers. The staff is located both in the primary pharmacy location in Morgantown as well as several clinics on campus. The pharmacy is licensed in WV, PA, OH, KY, MD, and VA. Previous to this role, Mr. Sokos served as Assistant Director of Pharmacy at WVU Hospitals. He has also worked as an Infectious Disease Health Science Associate with Merck and practiced community pharmacy with Kmart, Giant Eagle and Walmart. Mr. Sokos received his pharmacy degree (B.S.) from the WVU School of Pharmacy in 1987 and his MBA from WVU in 2000.
