ETP Funding $946,000

Founded in January 2009 and headquartered in San Diego California, CareFusion is a global medical technology company that manufactures IV infusion medical equipment, medication and supply dispensing equipment, respiratory care products, infection prevention products and surgical instruments to customers in the United States and over 130 countries throughout the world (www.carefusion.com). Some of its products manufactured in California include Alaris® IV pumps, Pyxis® automated dispensing and patient identification systems, AirLife™, AVEA® and LTV® series ventilators and respiratory products, ChloraPrep® skin prep products, MedMined® surveillance services, and V. Mueller® and Snowden-Pencer® surgical instruments. Its primary customers include hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, clinics, long-term care facilities and physician offices.

CareFusion employs 3,614 full-time workers in California at its facilities in San Diego, Ontario, Yorba Linda, and Palm Springs, all sites targeted for ETP funded training. CareFusion’s California operations qualify for standard ETP funding as a manufacturer (Title 22, California Code of Regulations, Section 4416(i)(1). CareFusion was spun-off (sold) from Cardinal Health in August 2009 through the distribution and sale of stock shares. The company is now committed to bringing new products to market and has invested over $400 Mil on research and development. CareFusion’s business strategies are to expand its product portfolio with additional and enhanced products and services that will help healthcare providers reduce medication errors and overall treatment costs, reduce infections, and manage medications and supplies more efficiently. To achieve its goals, it must have a well-trained and highly skilled workforce. The overall objective of this ETP training project is to re-tool the existing workforce by building new knowledge and new job skill sets relative to the biotech manufacturing industry. The ETP funded training will focus on training and development of both incumbent and newly hired staff responsible for research, development, sales/marketing and production of CareFusion’s products.
