HCA Healthcare mission and values

Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

In pursuit of our mission, we stand by the following value statements:

  • We recognize and affirm the unique and intrinsic worth of each individual.
  • We treat all we serve with compassion and kindness.
  • We trust our colleagues as valuable members of our healthcare team and pledge to treat one another with loyalty, respect and dignity.
  • We act with absolute honesty, integrity and fairness in the way we conduct our business and the way we live our lives.

Our commitment to ethics and compliance

The HCA Healthcare Ethics and Compliance program helps ensure everyone associated with an HCA Healthcare facility reflects the mission and values statements, our commitment to stakeholders and other standards found in our Code of Conduct.

These approaches set high standards for how we treat our patients, colleagues, communities and other groups with whom we interact. If everyone within HCA Healthcare reflects these standards, it will ensure compassionate, high-quality and patient-focused healthcare at all times.
