Walgreens Boots Alliance Acquires Care Centrix

  • WBA's partnership with Care Centrix extends care capabilities into the home to create a connected ecosystem for patients.

  • Care Centrix CEO John Driscoll will join WBA to lead U.S Healthcare, including Walgreens Healthcare.

  • CareCentrix currently manages care for more than 19 million members through over 7,400 provider locations, offering a suite of services on an integrated basis to support homecare models — including home nursing, durable medical equipment, home infusion and in-home palliative care. By helping to accelerate the transition of care to patients’ homes, CareCentrix provides one of the core elements to support value-based care on behalf of health plans and providers.

  • In WBA’s fiscal year 2021, CareCentrix delivered pro forma sales of $1.5 billion. The company will continue as a distinct business and brand within Walgreens following the full acquisition.
