Mark Guinan – Chief Financial Officer
Okay. Good morning. Thanks for joining us today to the Deutsche Bank Health Care Conference. It is my pleasure to introduce Hill-Rom. With us today we have Mark Guinan, the Chief Financial Officer. So Mark's going to give us a couple of minutes of overview with a slide presentation where they're going to move it over to Q&A.
As a reminder, you do have instructions for logging onto or you want to submit questions online and if you're on the web cast, you can free to email me as well at firstname.lastname@example.org. So with that, I'm going to turn it over to Mark.
Thank you, Kristen, and good morning to everyone. Welcome to Hill-Rom's presentation at the Deutsche Bank Conference. First off, I want to remind everyone of the usual statements, remind you that we have some forward-looking statements contained in some of my comments today, and that I will refer you to our 10-K and recent 10-Q for a further explanation on some of the missed factors in our company.
For those of you who are a little less familiar with the Hill-Rom story, we are a medical products company that provides global leading products across the care continuum. And by across the care continuum, we’re talking about products from acute to post acute, starting out with our patient support systems, frames and surfaces, to patient lifts, to architectural products, to furniture and health information IT.
