Revenue for GE Healthcare rose 9% to $4.702 billion, compared with $4.305 billion for the same quarter in 2017. Profit in the segment rose to $735 million, up 11% from $661 million for the same quarter in 2017, due to continued volume growth and productivity.
Overall, the GE parent company reported a net loss of $1.2 billion for the first quarter of 2018 as a result of legal charges from lawsuits tied to its discontinued U.S. mortgage business. However, growth throughout most of its sectors -- including healthcare, aviation, transportation, and renewables -- suggest performance progress, according to the company.
