Giving back to our country
HCA Healthcare has a history of giving back to our country. Our network enables us to conduct leading-edge research and share best practices and support services not just across our facilities, but also across the nation.
Supported by the HCA Healthcare Research Institute (HRI) and Sarah Cannon Research Institute, our organization conducts large-scale clinical research and collaborates with institutions — including Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — to help improve the patient experience and inform patient care.
HCA Healthcare is also committed to combatting our nation’s opioid epidemic by raising awareness about the dangers of opioid misuse and proper disposal of medications. In 2021, we hosted our third annual Crush the Crisis event — 96 HCA Healthcare facilities across 17 states collected a record-breaking 15,566 pounds of unused and expired medications.
