Caring for our communities

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

One of our colleagues making a difference is Neil Moore, MSL, BSN, RN, TCRN, a trauma nurse at HCA Healthcare’s Parkland Medical Center in Derry, New Hampshire. In 2021, Neil volunteered 560 hours with PAWS New England, a nonprofit that rescues abandoned, neglected and abused dogs, provides veterinary care and then places them in safe, loving homes while they wait to be adopted.

Neil has welcomed canine guests of all shapes and sizes into his home, which he shares with a foster dog he adopted. Neil typically cares for his fosters for two months until they’re adopted, by which point he said it’s “hard not to love them.”

Neil is also a member of several community committees, including the South Central Public Health Network, New Hampshire Falls Taskforce and New Hampshire Seatbelt Coalition. He regularly volunteers at local community events, and for the last five years, he has also been busy with Stop the Bleed trainings around the state of New Hampshire. These life-saving courses teach participants how to recognize severe bleeding and control it. “As a trauma nurse, this is something that I enjoy teaching and will always accept requests to do so.”

Neil appreciates the value HCA Healthcare places on community service, sharing that “it promotes a sense of belonging and emphasizes how important what we do is, both at work and home. It encourages me to want to do more, and gives me a sense of community.”
