Colleagues

For our colleagues:

We strive to meet the needs of our colleagues
so they can continue to meet the needs of our patients.

Many things set HCA Healthcare apart from other healthcare organizations; however, at our core, our greatest strength is our people. In 2022, HCA Healthcare was recognized for the second consecutive year by LinkedIn as one of the 50 best U.S. workplaces for professionals to grow their careers. This annual list ranks companies based on seven pillars: ability to advance, skills growth, external opportunity, company stability, company affinity, gender diversity and educational background. We offer programs to support the emotional health and well-being of our colleagues, help them take control of their finances, and reach their educational and professional development goals.

More than ever, healthcare workers are under tremendous pressures to care for their communities. We’re here to support our physicians, nurses and other colleagues so they can continue to provide high-quality, patient-centered care. Existing and expanded mental wellness programs include Nurse Care, a free and confidential service that gives HCA Healthcare hospital-based nurses 24/7 remote access to licensed psychologists, social workers, and marriage and family therapists, and Optum, a partnership that offers colleagues and members of their immediate household free counseling sessions.

We’re also proud to support the educational goals of our colleagues and their family members. Eligible colleagues can receive financial help through our student loan and tuition assistance programs, and eligible dependents of HCA Healthcare colleagues can receive merit-based higher education scholarships through the HCA Healthcare Foundation’s Patricia Frist Memorial Scholarship Program. In addition, HCA Healthcare invests in current and future leaders through our Leadership Institute. In 2021, the Leadership Institute delivered more than 210,200 hours of training for over 78,600 participants.

HCA Healthcare offers our more than 93,000 nurses a variety of educational programs and partnerships to ensure a strong nursing pipeline to our facilities and growth opportunities for these valuable professionals. In 2020, Galen College of Nursing joined the HCA Healthcare family, bringing together two leading nursing organizations to increase access to education and provide nursing career development opportunities that we believe will positively impact patient care. Our nurse residency and StaRN (Specialty Training Apprenticeship for Registered Nurses) programs prepare nursing colleagues for their careers in healthcare, and our Centers for Clinical Advancement give nurses the opportunity to work with lifelike simulation equipment so they can feel confident and knowledgeable in a variety of patient care situations.

Our Galen College of Nursing collaboration is the largest academic practice partnership in the U.S. In addition, HCA Healthcare provides significant clinical and medical education as the largest sponsor of graduate medical education programs in the U.S., with 299 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited programs, more than 4,800 residents and fellows, and 59 teaching hospitals.

In addition, HCA Healthcare has become a significant provider of clinical and medical education and is the largest sponsor of graduate medical education programs in the U.S., with 303 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited programs, more than 5,000 residents and fellows and 61 teaching hospitals.

HCA Healthcare was recognized on the 2022 LinkedIn Top Companies list.
