We’re committed to being a responsible corporate citizen

HCA Healthcare has been nationally recognized as a military-friendly employer and military-spouse friendly employer for 11 consecutive years by VIQTORY. Since 2012, we have hired more than 40,000 veterans, active-duty personnel and military spouses. In 2021, we received the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award.

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.

Doing the right thing

During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, we took a conservative approach to meet the operational and financial challenges the global health crisis was expected to present. As a result of these actions, HCA Healthcare was able to return, or repay early, approximately $6 billion in CARES Act funds. We chose to return the taxpayer dollars we did not need because it was the right thing to do.
