Herb Yates came to IU Health 42 years ago fresh out of pharmacy school. Shortly into his career he became interested in the computer side of pharmacy. One of Herb’s career highlights was helping to bring an automated medication dispensing system to IU Health. In fact, in some circles, he’s known and as The Godfather of Pyxis. “That was a nickname bestowed upon me, not only by some of my coworkers, but the company that owns Pyxis themselves,” said Herb, who is looking forward to retiring and handing off his Pyxis knowledge to the younger generation later this year.
