About Us

At HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission:
Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

We are one of the nation's leading providers of healthcare services, comprised of 182 hospitals and approximately 2,300 ambulatory sites of care, including surgery centers, freestanding emergency rooms, urgent care centers and physician clinics, in 20 states and the United Kingdom.*

Many things set HCA Healthcare apart from other healthcare organizations; however, at our core, our greatest strength is our people. Every day, more than 283,000 colleagues** go to work with a collective focus: our patients.

Our focus positively impacts the care experience at the bedside and beyond. As a learning health system, HCA Healthcare analyzes data from more than 35 million patient encounters** each year. This data helps develop technologies and best practices that improve patient care. We also share our learnings with the larger healthcare community and government agencies to improve care everywhere.

We are proud of the impact we have in our communities through employment, investment and charitable giving. In 2021, we spent more than $3.5 billion on capital investment in land, buildings and equipment. In addition, HCA Healthcare pays significant taxes that help revitalize communities. We incurred $5.5 billion in federal, state and local taxes in 2021, including $2.8 billion of income, property, sales and use taxes. We also provided charity care, uninsured discounts and other uncompensated care at an estimated cost of more than $3.3 billion in 2021.

At HCA Healthcare, we are excited about the future of medicine and we believe we are uniquely positioned to play a leading role in the transformation of care.
