Private equity firm Francisco Partners announced this morning that it will acquire Pittsburgh-based McKesson Automation, which offers hospital pharmacy automation solutions. McKesson had announced plans to divest the business earlier this year.

According to a Francisco Partners spokesperson, “McKesson Automation is highly regarded in the healthcare industry for its system-wide approach to and deep understanding of the medication delivery process. We are excited to work closely with the existing leadership team to expand the automation business as a standalone company.”

McKesson acquired the former Automated Healthcare in 1996 for $65 million.
