Valued Rexall Customers and Patients,
Today, it was announced that McKesson Corporation has agreed to acquire Rexall Health.
For you, our customers and patients, it is business as usual. Your local Rexall will still have all of the products and brands you trust and rely on. You will be able to come in and speak with your pharmacist about your health and well-being as well as fill or re-fill your prescription. We are committed to providing you with the same excellent care, services and products that you have come to expect.
This transaction is a natural next step for two companies that have a history of working together to deliver care to Canadians. McKesson has been active in Canada for over 100 years, helping to build a strong network of independent pharmacies. With McKesson, Rexall Health will be able to serve a complete range of pharmaceutical care needs and ensure choice to consumers at a time when Canadians are more concerned than ever about their healthcare.
On behalf of our over 9,000 employees and our new partners at McKesson, we look forward to continuing to serve you as Rexall Health enters this exciting new phase.
