What Nuclear Manufacturing contributes to Cardinal Health
Nuclear Manufacturing is responsible for the manufacturing of time sensitive radiopharmaceuticals in an integrity driven, highly regulated environment (i.e. FDA, NRC, DOT) to support patient treatment through disease diagnosis, staging, and monitoring.

The primary work environment consists of a manufacturing facility that produces time sensitive radiopharmaceuticals, which must be kept clean, orderly, properly lighted and maintained in optimum operating condition.  Employees handle radioactive materials and are exposed to very low amounts of radiation that are deemed safe by current standards.  The facility is operated under well-controlled and closely monitored conditions that are regulated by both State and Federal agencies. Noise levels are considered low to moderate.
