- Strategic Partnership Announced With Health Robotics

Health Robotics today announced that it has signed an exclusive five-year strategic partnership with McKesson for Health Robotics' CytoCare Robot. The agreement enables McKesson to achieve its goal of safely, accurately and cost-effectively automating the preparation of Oncology I.V. admixtures.

"We are very pleased to have been chosen by Health Robotics as their exclusive CytoCare partner in our core markets of the United States and Canada", stated David Souerwine, President, McKesson Automation. "CytoCare, a-one-of-its-kind solution, represents an ideal complement to ROBOT-Rx(R) and MedCarousel(R) technologies, and our entire suite of Automation solutions."

McKesson believes that CytoCare has the potential to become the gold standard for Oncology I.V. admixtures in North America, equally protecting clinicians and patients. The successful installations of the CytoCare Robot in the United States, including the University of Colorado Hospital in Denver, show synergies between CytoCare and both McKesson Automation and other McKesson Provider Technologies market-leading solutions.

"McKesson is the ideal partner for Health Robotics in North America due to its commitment to medication safety, company stability, market footprint, world-class service infrastructure, and complementary oral medication automation technologies. I was extremely impressed to see their manufacturing and customer services operations in Pittsburgh; they are exactly what CytoCare customers need in North America: a knowledgeable, committed, resourceful, and customer-focused organization. This is precisely what Health Robotics requires at this moment in time to take CytoCare to the next level of market acceptance and customer-service focus in North America. I'm sure this is just the beginning of a long-term partnership expanding into manufacturing and other fields of I.V. Robotics Automation", stated Werner Rainer, Chairman and CEO of Health Robotics.
