DUBLIN, Ohio, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardinal Health today announced that George Barrett has been elected to the company's board of directors and will serve as chairman and chief executive officer of Cardinal Health, effective on the completion of the planned spinoff of CareFusion Corp. on Aug. 31.

"On behalf of the board and all of Cardinal Health, I want to thank Kerry for his clear vision and leadership during his tenure as chairman and CEO," said Richard Notebaert, a Cardinal Health director since 1999. "His legacy begins with the repositioning of Cardinal Health to better serve our hospital and pharmacy customers and will culminate in the planned spinoff of CareFusion - enabling two companies to better serve their customers, employees and shareholders.
