Description

McKesson's vision is to help create a health care system where quality is higher, mistakes are fewer and costs are lower. As the nation's leading health care services company, we provide pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and health care information technologies that make health care safer while reducing costs. McKesson touches virtually every aspect of health care. For instance, McKesson:
Is the largest pharmaceutical distributor in North America. Every day we distribute one-third of the medicines used in North America, supplying more than 40,000 U.S. health care locations from Wal-Mart to the Department of Veterans Affairs to community pharmacies.


Is the nation's leading health care IT company, with software and hardware technology installed in more than 70% of the nation's hospitals that have more than 200 beds.


Provides decision support software to help physicians determine the best possible clinical diagnosis and treatment plans for patients.


Develops and installs electronic systems that eliminate the need for paper prescriptions and paper medical records and provides physicians with easy and secure online access to patient information.


Helps prevent more than 330,000 medication errors every week through bar-code scanning technology that helps to ensure the right patient gets the right drug at the right time.

Health care is in our genes. McKesson is America's oldest and largest health care services company, with its pharmaceutical wholesaling roots dating back more than 175 years. In fact, the company created the first national drug distribution system. For more about McKesson's history, as well as all of our current businesses, please see our online media kit.

By combining its industry-leading health care information technology and scale with unsurpassed clinical knowledge, McKesson is helping health care providers deliver better, safer care while reducing unnecessary costs.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Calif., McKesson employs more than 32,000 people across the nation and around the world. We're dedicated to delivering vital medicines, medical supplies and health care information technology solutions that touch the lives of patients in every health care setting.
