Founded in 1833, McKesson is the oldest and largest healthcare services company in North America. McKesson supplies branded, generic, and over-the-counter drugs to over 40,000 customers comprising more than 50% of U.S. hospitals and 96% of the top 25 health plan providers. McKesson’s healthcare solutions provide one-third of all medications used every day across North America. As a national leader in pharmaceutical distribution, the company incorporates innovative technological solutions — such as electronic order processing, computerized merchandising, and asset management tools. These and other McKesson solutions ensure safe, efficient, and GDP-compliant distribution services.
