Enhancing Outcomes Around the World
Throughout the year, we make charitable contributions and in-kind product donations to organizations within our investment focus, while devoting extensive employee volunteer hours to not-for-profit organizations across the globe.
We work with Project C.U.R.E, Heart to Heart International, the American Red Cross and dozens of health, education and local groups around the world to help people achieve enhanced healthcare outcomes and receive better education, and by doing so, strengthen communiities in need.
Through these partners, we donate hospital beds, surgical equipment, vision care and other medical devices whether in response to natural disasters or for everyday medical care needs, in developing countries.
And with the support of our Hillrom for Humanity Action Teams at sites around the world, we volunteer for and support countless organizations.
Environment, Health and Safety
Environmental sustainability, health and safety remain firmly rooted in our values, as well as our growth ambitions. We prioritize, manage and carefully track:
- Safety performance at all locations globally
- Our efforts to reduce carbon emissions and energy use
- Recycling of a range of materials
- Responsible and reduced landfill use
Project C.U.R.E. is proud to partner with Hill-Rom in their innovative and generous “Hillrom for Humanity” program. Together, we have touched the lives of tens of thousands of people who were previously without proper beds and surfaces. And we have impacted hundreds of nurses and caregivers by providing the tools they need to treat their patients. Working in tandem, we are delivering health and hope, and setting an example for the entire industry of good stewardship and genuine philanthropy.
