Everyone impacts patient care

An HCA employee’s day is filled with rewarding work around every turn, with aims toward improving efficiencies and finding ways to invest in the communities where we do business and have hospitals. The list of stories is long when seemingly ordinary tasks have a life-changing impact. A technical analyst locates a charger for an ER patient’s mobile phone so next of kin can be contacted; a nurse finds ways to make a procedure or hallway safer; a physician support coordinator teaches a doctor who wouldn't touch the computer on her desk six months ago to order prescriptions from her handheld device.

Throughout HCA’s nearly 50-year history a widely held belief among our founders, leaders, and each of our 241,000 employees is that every one of us impacts patient care, the quality delivery of which is our hallmark. Whether you report to work in Internal Audit, IT&S Service Management & Delivery, Clinical Services, Document Management Services, or the HCAhrAnswers call center, we all play a part in putting patients first and caring for and improving human life.

Working for HCA is fun and challenging, exciting and tense. What's at stake makes each task worth doing right the first time – but we are a supportive bunch when missteps happen, and we work together to emerge stronger and deliver what we promise when we say we will, at the bedside or in the boardroom. Working for HCA is more than a job; it truly is a career.
