We're a company that draws on a combined heritage of more than 450 years of innovation and excellence with our Hill-Rom, Liko, Trumpf Medical, Welch Allyn, Aspen and Allen product brands, to provide solutions that enhance outcomes for patients and their caregivers.
Our roots are in the ideas first set forth in 1929 by our founder William A. Hillenbrand, who had a dream to "bring the home into the hospital." Since that time, we have become an industry leader and a trusted partner to health care providers, caregivers, and patients around the world. We bring passion, dedication and innovation that matters in making a difference in the lives of those we touch.
