Thanks, good morning everybody. Let me just make a few comments before we jump into Q&A here, to start with the normal caveat on any forward-looking information that we may be discussing today. I’d like to refer everybody back to our SEC filings. Just a quick overview for those of you not that familiar with the Hill-Rom story. We’re about a billion six, billion seven revenue medical device company, serving the full range of the care continuum, from home care, extended care and acute care hospitals. Our core business is in the area of patient handling, patient mobility, so beds, surfaces, patient lifts, and environmental systems, what we refer to there are architectural products and other products to go into the either acute care setting or extended care setting, really to deal with patient handling, patient mobility. We’ve also got a respiratory care franchise and a surgical care franchise. Those, together with our core franchise, is really focused on enhancing outcomes, improving costs for our customers and helping them address their needs, which I’ll touch on here in a few minutes. I think many of you have heard us talk about also the increasing demand for connectivity, getting information off of our products into EMR systems or nurse call systems, which is obviously also a key focus for us.
