Hill-Rom Moves Corporate Headquarters To Chicago
Buried in recent news reports of Hill-Rom's more than $2 billion acquisition of Welch Allyn was a plan to relocate the company's corporate headquarters from its long-time home in Batesville to Chicago. John Greisch, the former CEO of Baxter International, never moved to Indiana in 2010 after he joined the company. This past week's announcement formalizes a decision to permanently relocate the company's headquarters to Illinois where it will become one of Illinois' 50 largest public companies. Its corporate offices employ about 80 people and is growing. The decision is not expected to affect the nearly 1,500 operations jobs still located in Batesville.
