Amazon (AMZN) is still trying to figure out how to build a healthcare division after closing Amazon Care (its home care service) last year. Other deals include the $3.9B acquisition of One Medical (a membership-based primary care center) and the launch of Amazon Hospital (which offers a wide range of general health services) in 2022, and the launch of Amazon Pharmacy in 2020 (following the purchase of a prescription company and email PillPack for $750M).
