IN SHORT TERM FROM BERGEN BRUNSWIG by improving the Orange, Calif.-based wholesaler's business practices, Cardinal Health CEO Robert Walter told the Hambrecht & Quist annual health care conference in San Francisco in January. "I am highly confident that we can drive up the profitability of their business, prior to considering the benefits of consolidation...and realize a potential of in excess of $120 mil.," Walter said.
