Henry's Hospital Wedding
After months in the ICU, a COVID-19 survivor marries his fiancée outside of a Florida hospital, surrounded by the doctors and nurses who saved his life.
When patients are your highest priority, when you work together as a team, when you believe in something bigger than yourself… it shows. And it compels you. To be there in someone's most difficult hour. To be willing to tackle the hard work. To show up. Always.
In 2021, HCA Healthcare was recognized for the 11th time by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as one of the World's Most Ethical Companies. HCA Healthcare is one of only seven honorees in the Healthcare Providers category.
Since we confirmed our first patient case in January 2020, HCA Healthcare has treated more suspected and positive COVID-19 cases than any other health system in the United States, including more than 173,000 patients admitted for inpatient care (as of June 30, 2021).
We are proud to say that we have not laid off or furloughed a single employee as a result of the pandemic. Early on, HCA Healthcare launched a special pandemic pay program, which guaranteed that full- and part-time colleagues in clinical and non-clinical support services would continue to receive 70% of their base pay if they were not scheduled for their full shifts and could not be redeployed to other facilities.
