Use of products in capital punishment

Use of products in capital punishment

We object in the strongest possible terms to the use of any of our products for the purpose of capital punishment. Not only is it contrary to the intended label use(s) for the products, but it is also inconsistent with our values and mission of improving lives by providing quality, affordable healthcare to patients.

Drug shortages statement

Drug shortages statement

Drug shortages are unfortunately occurring in the US with increasing frequency, and they are something we take very seriously because of the negative impact on patient care. As a provider of critical pharmaceutical products, we understand the important responsibility and role we have in helping to alleviate shortage situations.

Injectable opioid shortages

Injectable opioid shortages

In the US, there is currently a shortage of injectable opioids used in hospitals for the management of pain due to a significant supplier in the market temporarily ceasing manufacturing. We have made investments to significantly increase capacity for these products at our New Jersey facility as we are trying to make up for the large drop-in supply that is currently impacting patient care.
