“Our goal is to help successfully execute the patient-focused strategies of the manufacturers, providers, pharmacists and retailers who we support,” Bob Mauch, executive vice president at AmerisourceBergen and president of ABDC, said in a statement. “Enhancements to our distribution network combined with AmerisourceBergen’s unsurpassed knowledge and reach positions us to increase efficiency and drive innovation in pharmaceutical distribution and the delivery of health care.”
