Steve Fischbach co-founded Safecor Health in 2008 with the goal of fulfilling an unmet need in hospital pharmaceutical unit-dose repackaging. Since then, Safecor Health has transformed from an idea of safety through bar coding to the market leader and the most heavily used unit-dose repackaging provider in the country.
Steve started Safecor Health after more than 25 years of experience across the pharmaceutical and health care industries and earlier experiences in consulting, accounting and investment banking.
Prior to Safecor Health, he was a Senior Vice President of Operations at Cardinal Health — a distributor of pharmaceuticals, global manufacturer and distributor of medical and laboratory products, and a provider of performance and data solutions for health care facilities. Throughout his 12-year career at Cardinal Health, he also held increasingly senior positions throughout operations, investor relations, and business development.
Steve graduated from DePauw University with a B.S. in Economics and received an MBA in Marketing and Finance from Northwestern University.
