Welcome to Hillrom

We're a company that draws on a heritage of more than 85 years of innovation and excellence to provide solutions that enhance outcomes for patients and their caregivers.

About Hillrom Canada

Hillrom Canada had its beginnings in the 1940s when it was then known as Dominion Metalware Industries (DMI) which was a manufacturer of military parts supporting efforts in WWII. After the war, DMI shifted to manufacturing office furniture and by the 1960s, started to manufacture manual hospital beds and furniture. Hillenbrand Industries acquired DMI in 1972 and officially changed the name to Hillrom Canada in 1988. Today, Hillrom Canada’s head office is located in Mississauga, Ontario and has service centers spread across Canada.
