Founded From the Heart
When his daughter was hospitalized at birth, Randall Lipps observed much inefficiency in the way hospital supplies were managed, and he saw that it prevented nursing staff from spending more time directly caring for patients. He founded Omnicell, Inc. in 1992 on the premise that better management of supplies and medications would improve a hospital’s standard of care by allowing clinicians to spend more time with their patients.
Mr. Lipps has served as Omnicell’s Chairman since the company’s founding, and in 2002 he assumed the additional position of President and Chief Executive Officer, taking a more active leadership role in the company’s operations.
