About CareFusion

CareFusion, a subsidiary of Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD), is a global medical technology corporation that specializes in reducing medication errors and preventing healthcare-associated infections. The company was established in 2009 as a spinoff from Cardinal Health's Clinical and Medical Products segment.

Company History

CareFusion was created to focus on higher-margin, higher-risk medical technology businesses that were difficult to integrate with Cardinal Health's core drug distribution operations. The name "CareFusion" originated from a business Cardinal Health acquired in 2006, which sold wireless patient identification systems used in hospitals.

Over the years, CareFusion expanded its product portfolio through several strategic acquisitions:

  • In 2004, Cardinal Health acquired Alaris Medical Systems, a manufacturer of intravenous drug pumps, for $2 billion.
  • In 2010, CareFusion acquired Medegen, Inc. for $225 million in cash.
  • In 2012, CareFusion acquired U.K. Medical Limited and Intermed Equipamento Medico Hospitalar Ltda, expanding its reach in the UK and Brazil.
  • In 2013, CareFusion acquired Vital Signs Inc. from GE Healthcare and bought a 40% stake in Caesarea Medical Electronics.

Acquisition by BD

In October 2014, BD announced its acquisition of CareFusion for $12.2 billion, a move that significantly enhanced BD's capabilities in medication management and patient safety solutions. The acquisition was completed in March 2015, making CareFusion a wholly-owned subsidiary of BD.

Product Portfolio

CareFusion offers a wide range of medical products and technologies, including:

  • Alaris® infusion pumps
  • Pyxis® automated dispensing and patient identification systems
  • AVEA®, AirLife™, and LTV® series ventilators and respiratory products
  • ChloraPrep® skin preparation products
  • MedMined™ services for data mining surveillance
  • V. Mueller® surgical instruments
