Founded in service of oncology practices

Original location with FedEx van out front
A simple conversation about selling directly to physicians inspires Bill Stickler to found Oncology Supply, the first oncology distribution company in history. That year, we stock just 10 items. Bill begins building his relationships over the phone and in time, those connections grow across the whole country.

Supporting you during the pandemic

Customer service associates working from home
Oncology Supply, like businesses all around the world, is hit by COVID-19. When the scale of the pandemic becomes clear, a massive operation swings into action across AmerisourceBergen to enable our office associates to work from home. Extra protections are put in place to ensure the safety of the essential workers supporting the healthcare supply chain in our distribution center. And new measures help meet surges in ordering caused by the increased need.
