GE HealthCare announced that it has named Roland Rott president and CEO of Imaging and Phil Rackliffe president and CEO of Ultrasound and IGT. Both leaders bring to their roles decades of deep experience in healthcare innovation and experience leading global teams in businesses of scale. This also highlights the depth of internal talent that GE HealthCare is building to strengthen focus on delivering for patients and customers.

IGT, a $1.6 billion subsegment of Imaging, will be combined with the Ultrasound segment in the third quarter of 2024, to form a global business with more than $5.0 billion in annual revenue.i GE HealthCare is aligning IGT with Ultrasound to better match its clinical usage and realize stronger business and customer impact by providing the right image guidance in the right care setting. Aligning IGT and Ultrasound positions GE HealthCare to be more agile and address future imaging needs using these real-time modalities in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Without IGT, Imaging will remain GE HealthCare’s largest segment with more than $8.9 billion in annual revenue.ii This segment will enhance focus on solutions centered on surgical and interventional procedures, particularly interventional cardiology and structural heart, while continuing Ultrasound’s diagnostic leadership.
