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, our colleagues gave $17 million with HCA Healthcare matching and supported more than 5,600 charitable organizations through donations and volunteering.

HCA Healthcare is proud to partner with EVERFI, an international technology company driving social change through education, to provide the Mental Wellness Basics course. This digital resource introduces middle and high school students across all of our 15 U.S. divisions to mental health education. The course is designed to build awareness and empathy, reduce stigma and provide facts about the symptoms and prevalence of mental health conditions, including instruction about how to notice when mental health is at risk and choices that may help in reducing the severity of symptoms. Since its launch in October 2020, more than 100,000 students at over 400 schools have been reached by the Mental Wellness Basics course.

To have an even greater impact on our communities, HCA Healthcare works with a number of additional organizations whose missions also align with our own. Our support extends beyond sponsorships into truly collaborative partnerships, through which we can take better care of our patients, families and communities.

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

We also made our third consecutive contribution of $500,000 to the American Red Cross’ Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP). Members of the ADGP make donations before disasters strike to ensure the Red Cross has the infrastructure, volunteers, technology and other resources necessary to respond quickly to any crisis. This contribution was part of HCA Healthcare’s long history of supporting the Red Cross. We have provided more than $4.6 million in financial support over the past five years and work with the organization to respond to disasters.

In 2021, the HCA Healthcare Foundation established the Healthier Tomorrow Fund, an $80 million community impact fund designed to support innovative initiatives focused on addressing high-priority community needs and health equity. Since its inception, the fund has allocated $4.5 million to 13 different organizations.

As stewards of the environment, HCA Healthcare takes a proactive approach to protecting the environment by implementing greening hospital practices, promoting conservation, decreasing waste and exercising environmentally conscious purchasing. In 2021, HCA Healthcare recycled more than 16 million pounds of cardboard, paper, aluminum, wood and rechargeable batteries, as well as over 33.4 million pounds of construction waste. More than 969,600 pounds of devices were diverted from landfills for reprocessing.

We want the same things that our patients want: healthier communities that lead to healthier tomorrows. In 2021, HCA Healthcare provided more than $41 million in enterprise giving to community organizations.
