Cardinal Health, a drug wholesaler that also makes gloves and surgical apparel, has been shoring up its future earnings through a series of strategic acquisitions, development of its alternate care business, and promotion of its specialty drug assets. In late 2015 the company acquired Cordis, naviHealth, and Harvard Drug; it spent much of 2016 integrating them, with a 19% increase in annual revenue to show for it. The company’s pharmaceutical segment endured ongoing profit pressures for generics and the loss of a major customer but lessened the blows with new drug launches and sales growth; its medical segment grew because of acquisitions. The partnerships and purchases are a way for Cardinal Health to snag a greater share of the medical products sold to hospitals, physicians, and ambulatory centers. The company was founded in 1979 and is headquartered in Dublin, Ohio.
