RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District entering into a contract with Dr. Linda A. Opot, Pharm.D. to provide professional services for the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District (“CCNCPHD”) in the capacity of the Pharmacist-in-Charge for the period August 1, 2017 through July 31, 2019; and authorize the Director of the CCNCPHD to sign on behalf of Nueces County.
BACKGROUND
The previous part-time pharmacist, who was a retiree, served the CCNCPHD for many years until he passed away last year. Since that time the CCNCPHD has been searching for a replacement which has been a difficult undertaking because of the high demand in the market to hire full-time pharmacists paying very competitive wages and benefits. The CCNCPHD was able to find Dr. Opot who was willing to work for the CCNCPHD on a part-time, contractual basis. The contract will provide the professional services of a part-time pharmacist licensed by the State of Texas required to maintain the pharmacy licenses of and operate the CCNCPHD Horne Rd. and Robstown Pharmacies to be able to store, maintain, and dispense medications to patients of the CCNCPHD Horne Rd. and Robstown Clinics.
DISCUSSION
In consideration of Dr. Opot’s faithful performance of the contract and as full compensation for services performed pursuant to the contract, Dr. Opot will be paid $50.00 per hour, not to exceed ten (10) hours per month, to be remitted on a monthly basis following the delivery of services. The City of Corpus Christi will pay 50% of the expense; the County of Nueces, 50% of the expense. The contract may be renewed for additional two year terms, subject to sufficient appropriations, for the same period of calendar days and under the same terms and conditions, upon mutual agreement of the parties, in writing and signed by authorized representatives of each.
