There are many ways to champion health.
“There is so much good to do in the world and so many different ways to do it.”
Dr. Thomas Frist, Sr.
HCA's community support, delivered through the grassroots efforts of our employees, The HCA Foundation and HCA corporate sponsorships, helps sustain childhood and youth development programs, scholarships, community-based health clinics and the operating budgets of countless not-for-profit organizations across the country. In 2016, HCA made $23.2 million in cash donations to charitable organizations.
Our model of giving – led by the leadership, service and financial support of our employees in their communities – reflects our view that a strategic outlay of talent, resources and time yields stronger communities. This model also fosters our culture of inclusion and teamwork, strengthens our cultural competence, and cultivates goodwill within the diverse communities we serve.
Together, through care, leadership and support, we can be true change agents in our communities. In 2015, our employees pledged approximately $8.3 million to community agencies and volunteered more than 36,000 hours.
