Hillrom is Now a Part of Baxter
Baxter and Hillrom are uniting to meet the challenges of a rapidly-evolving healthcare landscape. Together, we will work to enable care efficiencies, improve care outcomes and broaden access to care at home, in the hospital, and in alternate sites of care.
As we progress our integration, we are focused on maintaining business continuity for you and your patients. There are no immediate changes to current ordering, invoicing and payment processes, technical service, clinical support or other services for either Baxter or Hillrom customers. We pledge to frequently and transparently provide updates as our service and support evolve throughout the integration.
Advancing the Next Generation of Transformative Healthcare
“Together, Baxter and Hillrom can unlock smarter solutions and efficiencies for providers that support improvements in clinical decision-making, care outcomes and other areas critical for patient care.”
