Management Comments

"I am pleased with the operating improvements that we delivered during the first quarter," stated John J. Greisch, president and CEO of Hill-Rom.  "We have seen demand levels stabilize over the past several quarters, and despite a challenging macro-economic environment, we achieved solid earnings improvement through margin expansion across all of our major business units.  Our improved margins have enabled us to increase investments in new product development and sales channels, while accelerating earnings."  

Other first quarter revenue highlights regarding Hill-Rom business segments include:

  • North America Acute Care.  North America Acute Care revenue declined $5.6 million, or 2.8 percent, to $197.9 million versus the prior year.  Capital sales decreased 7.2 percent, or $10.1 million, due to the prior year divestiture of certain non-strategic information technology product lines and the impact of lower hospital capital purchasing.  Rental revenue increased $4.5 million, or 7.1 percent, driven by growth of therapy rental products and the impact of H1N1-related influenza.
