Strengthening Your Supply Chain

With a vast product catalog, a 99.8% order accuracy rate and a commitment to the highest levels of performance and reliability, it's no wonder that more than a quarter million sites of care depend on McKesson Medical-Surgical for their supply needs. At McKesson, we're experts at getting you the products and supplies you need--precisely when you need them. But we know your supply chain needs don't end with product delivery. Formulary and contract management, systems integration and automation, inventory management, clinic setup support - these are just a few of the resources we offer that help many health systems operate more efficiently and manage their costs more effectively.

"Sure, everyone does distribution. McKesson does it better."

- Anita Ferdinand, Senior Buyer-Purchasing, Weill Medical College of Cornell University
