Communities

For our communities:

Making an impact on our world
starts in every community we serve

Our colleagues are deeply committed to learning, serving and leading in their communities. In 2021, HCA Healthcare provided more than $41 million in enterprise giving to community organizations. Our colleagues volunteered nearly 100,000 hours and over 5,600 charitable organizations were supported through donations and volunteering.

We want the same things that our patients want: healthier communities that lead to healthier tomorrows. To help increase our impact in communities, HCA Healthcare collaborates with organizations whose missions align with our own. Partnership areas of focus include: improving access to care and addressing health equity, increasing opportunity and access to healthcare careers, championing positive mental wellness and responding to crisis and community needs.

Our community partnerships

In 2021, HCA Healthcare strengthened its commitment to March of Dimes by announcing a unique partnership focused on improving maternal mortality and morbidity outcomes. HCA Healthcare committed an additional contribution to the organization of up to $1.7 million in 2021 and 2022.

In 2021, HCA Healthcare announced a $10 million investment over the next three years to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) across our footprint to advance diversity in healthcare.

This investment includes a $1.5 million donation to Florida International University’s (FIU) Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences (NWCNHS). The goal of this donation is to help address the national nursing shortage by helping the school expand its faculty and offer scholarships to increase enrollment.

HCA Healthcare is proud to collaborate with EVERFI, an international technology company driving social change through education. Our partnership helps deliver the Understanding Mental Wellness digital course that builds awareness and empathy, helps reduce stigma and provides facts about the symptoms and prevalence of mental health conditions. Since its launch in October 2020, more than 126,000 students at nearly 600 schools have been reached by the Understanding Mental Wellness course.

HCA Healthcare has a longstanding partnership with the American Red Cross, and over the past six years, HCA Healthcare has provided approximately $5 million in financial support. These contributions help fund the Disaster Responder Program that helps the Red Cross respond quickly to any crisis and supports disaster relief and preparedness.


Investing in future leaders

When Minnie Washington arrived for her first day of work in HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe's cafeteria 30 years ago, she had no idea that she’d one day be a leader in the nursing field, helping to guide a team of nurses through a pandemic.

Caring for our communities

HCA Healthcare and our colleagues are committed to building stronger, more vibrant communities through giving and volunteering.
