What are the five most successful companies in the Healthcare space?

Hello! Thank you for your question on the 5 most successful companies in health. The short answer is that, according to annual revenue, the top 5 most successful companies, listed from highest to lowest, are: McKesson Corporation, UnitedHealth Group, AmerisourceBergen Corporation, Cardinal Health, Express Scripts Holding Company. Below you will find a deep dive of my research, including details of their operations, revenues and contact details for hiring.

METHODOLOGY
To answer your question, I used Google and the Wonder research database as my primary research tools. Through these tools, I found the above-listed companies, as well as the following site, which proved useful in my research on revenue: Hoovers.com. I searched for industry information about top 5 companies in healthcare in the United States.

From the resources I found, the 2016 Fortune.com article "The Biggest Health Care Companies in the Fortune 500" proved to be the most beneficial, as it provided both the list of the Top 5 companies, as well as their annual revenue for 2015. I used both the individual companies' websites and Hoovers.com to find information on their 2016 revenues.

For each company, I reviewed the details of their annual financial reports as well as the company culture and hiring practices.
