Cardinal Health

Your mission

As new members of the Cardinal Health team, you will be the keepers of our promise. You must strive to deliver on it at every point of internal and external contact, from the solutions and services we provide, to the work that you do every day. You will take pride in the work Cardinal Health does across the continuum of care, from the first crate loaded to the last dosage taken, from the simple box of bandages to the complex clinical trial. You will remain the humble partner, trusted advisor, and tenacious advocate you’ve always been. 
Above all, you’ll be essential. The winds of change are pushing our customers and their patients into an uncertain future. So be their vision. Be their support. Be their wings.

Who we are

Cardinal Health was originally founded in 1971 as Cardinal Foods – a food wholesaler in Central Ohio. 
After creating Cardinal Foods, our founder, Bob Walter, worked to build the business – he invested in the company, and looked to expand our customer offering to include more services in a more integrated way.
He turned to the drug industry, recognizing there were a surprising number of similarities between distributing food and distributing drugs. Most intriguing of all, drug distribution was highly fragmented – and characterized by a lot of small, privately run regional wholesalers. So, in 1979, he acquired 50 percent interest in a small Zanesville Ohio drug distributor called Bailey Drug Company, and quickly saw the potential for a much more aggressive approach to servicing this important industry. 
Today, Cardinal Health is much more – we are in the top 300 on the Global Fortune 2000 and are a worldwide provider of exceptional distribution but also products and solutions focused at helping you overcoming your most pressing challenges. As healthcare continues to go through robust change, we understand the pressures our customers are facing to reduce the cost of care and drive patient outcomes. To support this, we built upon our foundation in meaningful ways well beyond logistics to include a range or product and business solutions.
