Cardinal Health Canada History
In 1997 Allegiance Healthcare Canada, Inc and MDS Ingram and Bell Inc.
combined their Canadian healthcare products and distribution businesses to form
Source Medical. The new company, created to address the changing needs of the
healthcare profession, now serves hospitals, laboratories and other healthcare
facilities across Canada.
Source Medical was designed to provide customers with the innovative products
and distribution services they need to deliver better care to more people.
Source Medical set benchmarks for introducing and providing medical products and
services to healthcare providers and laboratories – efficiently and effectively.
By improving the way we manage and integrate products through our supply
chain and working with a full range of leading healthcare product manufacturers,
Source Medical effectively helps clients manage their costs and deliver better
In November of 2005, Cardinal Health acquired MDS’s interest, and Source
Medical is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Cardinal Health U.S., operating as
an independent entity in the Canadian marketplace.
