HCA Healthcare is committed to providing communities we serve a healthier tomorrow.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, more than 130 people in the United States die each day from opioid-related drug overdoses . The misuse of prescription opioids often begins when the drugs are obtained from a friend or family member's medicine cabinet.
In 2019, 100 HCA Healthcare facilities in 16 states hosted "Crush the Crisis" Opioid Take-Back events. This community service effort, supported by local law enforcement, resulted in the collection of 5,887 pounds of unused and expired prescription medications, which is estimated to be 4,045,903 doses.
Together, we can help “Crush the Crisis”
As caregivers and members of the HCA Healthcare family, we are committed to helping bring awareness to the dangers of opioid addiction and the importance of proper disposal.
