Learn more about our company, our values and our commitment to healthcare.
That's more than just a privilege. At HCA, it's our calling. Since our founding nearly 50 years ago, we have followed a vision of healthcare the way it should be: patient-centered, constantly evolving and constantly improving, practiced with integrity and compassion.
We all have a role in making this vision a reality. Together, we can make a difference in people's lives and build a thriving, healthier world.
We believe that the successful management of the business of healthcare means better healthcare for everyone, whether you are a physician leading the way in medicine, a nurse who takes pride in making a difference by providing excellent treatment with kindness, or a patient looking for the best care possible.
Our teams work hard to define standards of excellence in improving health. Amidst the fast-changing dynamics of healthcare, we drive the conversations that need to happen, solve the challenges that caregivers face every day, and put into practice sustainable, practical solutions that transform communities.
"HCA is committed to 'learning healthcare.' That means that we commit to using the data from all the patients we’ve been privileged to care for to continuously improve care for every subsequent patient. Because of our scale, HCA is advancing knowledge for preventing infection and sepsis, and saving lives. To quote our founder, Dr. Thomas Frist, Jr., 'When we improve care at HCA, we improve healthcare everywhere.'"
Delivering exceptional care starts with a foundation of inclusion, compassion and respect – for our patients and for each other. HCA exists to champion the best practices of healthcare, and that means delivering culturally competent care, no matter a person’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or veteran status.
In line with our strategic efforts to ensure equitable care, HCA is proud to actively support the national collaborative effort, Equity of Care. We know that by eliminating disparities in healthcare, we can improve experiences and outcomes for all our patients.
