GE Healthcare recently announced that it will relocate its global headquarters from the UK to Chicago in early 2016. The move will enable the company’s executive leadership team to be closer to operations in Chicago and Milwaukee, while remaining near an international transportation hub.

“We are excited to strengthen GE’s roots in Chicago, where we will continue our focus on being the leading provider of outcome-based solutions for the healthcare industry,” said GE Healthcare President and CEO John Flannery. “Chicago has a rich industrial heritage, terrific international transportation links and is close to some of the world’s leading healthcare and academic institutions. It is also ideally located for many of GE Healthcare’s operations”

GE Healthcare joins a list of nearly 70 companies that have announced plans to locate or expand in the region in the fourth quarter of 2015, illustrated on the interactive map below:

*Refers to data (where disclosed) for new and expanding companies with a physical address in the 14-county Chicago region that meet Site Selection criteria (full Site Selection criteria can be found here), and/or is a headquarters facility, and/or was assisted by WBC.  WBC captures project information from media outlets, press releases, company websites, subscription services and WBC internal reporting; the quality of each record depends on the availability of data and resources to input and confirm information.
