Highlights

CVS Caremark was formed in 2007 via the merger of two leading players in the pharmacy healthcare provider industry. It has since gone on to become the largest provider of such services in the US with annual revenues of over $120bn and approximately 200,000 employees
CVS Caremark’s management decided that the business would be run most efficiently through divisions. Consequently, three main divisions were established, each with a specific focus: CVS/pharmacy (retail pharmacy), CVS Caremark Pharmacy Services (PBM, mail order and specialty pharmacy), and MinuteClinic (retail medical clinical provider)
Since it was founded via the merger of CVS Corporation and Caremark RX in 2007, CVS Caremark has grown to be one of the largest companies in the US by revenue. It has consistently grown both its revenues and net income, while assuring that it does not rely too heavily on either of its two major segments: Pharmacy Services and Retail Pharmacy
