Pyxis Corporation


Co-founded by Ron Taylor and investor Tim Wollaeger in 1987. What started as a small start-up company grew to a highly-profitable, publically listed company with more than 1500 employees. Under Taylor’s leadership, Pyxis set a new standard for the safe and accurate delivery of drugs through its Medstation: an automated drug distribution technology and service systems platform. The Pyxis Medstation was originally created for the safe delivery of narcotics, but the system proved to be so effective, its use expanded to distribution of medications and supplies of all kinds. By implementing the Medstation, nurses and clinicians experienced accurate, streamlined workflow, leading to reduced manual error, time and cost. The system modernized safe medication management, transforming the care process at both the patient and clinician level.
