The change of our corporate name to CVS Health is an important milestone in the history of our company. It reflects our broader health care commitment and our expertise in driving the innovations needed to shape the future of health.
For our patients and customers, health is everything and CVS Health is changing the way health care is delivered. We’re committed to increasing access, lowering costs and improving the quality of care. Each year, CVS Health touches more than 100 million people by playing an active, supportive role in each person’s unique health experience and in the greater health care environment.
It may be one of our pharmacists counseling a grandmother on why it’s important for her to take her diabetes medication as prescribed by her doctor, or a nurse practitioner at one of our MinuteClinics being there on a Saturday afternoon to diagnose and treat an earache for a seven-year-old so an unnecessary trip to the emergency room can be avoided, or CVS/specialty addressing the needs of a newly diagnosed young mother with rheumatoid arthritis, to understand how to take the potent medications that will make a difference in her life.
Millions of times a day, close to home and across the country, we’re helping people on their path to better health.
As a further demonstration of our commitment, we’ve removed cigarettes and tobacco products from our CVS/pharmacy stores. By eliminating the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products in our stores, we can make a difference in the health of all Americans.
We also launched a comprehensive and uniquely personalized smoking cessation campaign to help millions of Americans to quit smoking.
As CVS Health, we are tobacco-free, reinventing pharmacy and taking our place among leaders in the health care community.
