Our Values

McKesson President and CEO John Hammergren on leadership and McKesson’s shared values:

“Whether you’re talking about a person or a company, leadership is about values. Values are the foundation for leadership, and the job of leadership is to create the conditions that allow strong values to thrive.

We lead by having the courage to make difficult decisions and by caring enough to do whatever it takes to help our customers succeed.

We lead by contributing to a supportive work environment where everyone feels connected and engaged, and where it is safe to confront facts, take risks, and try new ideas.” 


McKesson is in business for better health. As a company working with health care stakeholders in every setting, we are charting the course toward a stronger, more sustainable future for the entire industry.



 

As the oldest and largest health care services company in the nation, McKesson plays an integral role in health care and has a unique vision for its future. We serve more than 50% of American hospitals, 20% of physicians and 100% of health plans, and as the largest pharmaceutical distributor in North America, we deliver one-third of all medications used there every day.

Our software, distribution and business services play an essential role in addressing the challenges health care organizations face today — and shaping how they’ll overcome them tomorrow. We connect people and organizations, support the quest for higher quality and improved clinical outcomes, and help health care businesses run better. And that supports better patient health.
