Home to the nation’s highest paid CEO, McKesson, the country’s largest drug distributor, held steady at No. 14 on this year’s list. In 2012, McKesson also held on to a key contract with the Department of Veteran Affairs, which runs one of the country’s largest health systems, and broadened its business through the acquisition of PSS World Medical, a company that supplies products and services to doctor offices and nursing homes. McKesson, which digitizes health records for hospitals and medical providers, also announced it’s spearheading an industry effort that will allow doctors across the country to share medical data and theoretically, coordinate better and cheaper healthcare.
