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.
