From company names you’ve known all your life to ones you may never heard of, the healthcare industry has some amazing industry leaders that provide amazing services. One thing you might not be aware of, some of these life changing companies are actually family owned businesses, started by family members, and some are still owned and even run by family members and founder’s descendants to this day. Working for “the family business” used to be a much more common occurrence than it is today, back when a particular trade was passed down from one generation to another. We wanted to highlight two successful family companies within the healthcare industry that have made a lasting impact on the health and wellbeing of people all over the world, and give you a peek inside our own.
Since 1896, Roche has been enhancing and aiding the health care communities of the world. Fritz Hoffman-La Roche founded Roche in 1896, knowing that the future of the medical world would be rooted in pharmaceutical products and medicines. As the industrial revolution was taking Europe by storm, La Roche knew that manufacturing medicines would be the best and only way to fight the debilitating diseases of the time.
John McKesson and Charles Olcott founded McKesson in New York in 1833 to make available and sell chemicals and therapeutic drugs wholesale. Still in business and extremely relevant in today’s market, McKesson has risen to become one of the largest healthcare companies in the United States and is at the forefront of healthcare technology and pharmaceutical distribution. A large portion of McKesson shares are still held by family members today.
