HCA Healthcare is one of the nation's leading providers of healthcare services, operating over 170 locally managed hospitals and approximately 1,800 outpatient facilities, including surgery centers, freestanding ERs, urgent care centers and physician clinics, in 20 states and the United Kingdom. With its founding in 1968, HCA Healthcare created a new model for hospital care in the United States, using combined resources to strengthen hospitals, deliver patient-focused care and improve the practice of medicine. HCA Healthcare has conducted a number of clinical studies, including one that demonstrated that full-term delivery is healthier than early elective delivery of babies and another that identified a clinical protocol that can reduce bloodstream infections in ICU patients by 44 percent. HCA Healthcare is a learning healthcare system that uses its more than 27 million annual patient encounters to advance science, improve patient care and save lives.
Treating the Sickest of the Sick
The Intensive Care Consortium (ICC) at HCA is a group of critical care physicians connected by a strong sense of purpose for treating critically ill adult patients and are the leading model for clinical care excellence at HCA and in the country.
Addressing Burnout and Physician Shortage as a Threat to Quality Care
Given the national shortage of critical care doctors, HCA is committed to attracting and retaining more physicians to treat our country’s sickest patients. We have a high annual retention rate among physicians, demonstrating that our intensivists are highly satisfied. This higher retention rate provides a stable and consistent culture that provides fulfilling and manageable work for our physicians and improved outcomes for our patients.
Ongoing Education and Mentorship Keeps the Field of Critical Care Strong
The ICC at HCA incorporates a robust mentorship program, which ensures that our physicians are always practicing at the top of their professions and improves the probability that those mentored will remain in the field through the end of their careers. ICC manages 18 Graduate Medical Education programs in critical care, where medical students who have chosen this specialty receive exceptional training and are prepared to make a career in critical care.
