McKesson Canada has announced plans to acquire Uniprix, one of the largest groups of independent pharmacists in Quebec. No financial details of the deal were disclosed.
Uniprix offers services to a network of more than 330 pharmacies across Quebec, and the two sides have a long history of working together. The deal will see the individual pharmacies remain independently owned.
McKesson noted: “The acquisition will allow independent pharmacies to remain competitive in an increasingly changing industry. For McKesson Canada, this is a strategic investment that enhances our commitment to Quebec.”
