Corporate social responsibility
Our products are enhancing the outcome of patients and caregivers around the world. At Hill-Rom, we view good corporate citizenship as a natural extension of our mission and yet another opportunity to improve lives around the world. We value our customers, our employees and the communities in which we work.
We are committed to the highest standards of ethics and integrity in all that we do. The company has a clear mission and set of values. We provide resources for all Hill-Rom employees to understand and fully comply with all applicable laws and regulations. The company also provides support and opportunities for all employees worldwide to raise ethical questions or concerns in a confidential environment.
Hill-Rom is dedicated to business practices that are environmentally sound. We work to find innovative solutions to reduce use of materials throughout our operations. We are committed to the responsible management, use and disposal of chemicals used in the manufacture of our products. Through trade-in or buy back, many of our products are refurbished and returned to the market or the materials recycled to reclaim metals, plastics and electronic components. In addition to our recycling efforts, we pursue environmentally sound facilities management practices.
Through the Hill-Rom Hospital Beds for Humanity® programme, global Hill-Rom volunteers contribute their time and effort to refurbish and renew beds and other Hill-Rom products that are then delivered to needy hospitals in developing countries around the world.
These are just a few examples of how Hill-Rom is making a positive contribution and working for a better outcome each and every day in our global communities.
Hill-Rom is proud to help support the Alzheimer’s Society
The Alzheimer's Society staff and volunteers provide both local information and over 2,000 services across England, Wales and Northern Ireland to people affected by dementia. Their local services include day care and home care for people with dementia, as well as support and outreach services to help partners and families cope with the demands of caring.
The Society also provides reliable and up-to-date information to help with every aspect of living with dementia: from understanding diagnosis and assessment to dealing with the financial challenges encountered.
The aim of the Alzheimer’s Society is to increase investment into their research programmes to around £10 million a year by 2017. This money funds important research that will help to improve the quality of life for people with dementia, by tackling questions related to the causes of dementia, investigating good practice in care and treatment, and pursuing a cure.
