A Heart of Caring

The story of Dr. Tommy Frist, Jr. and HCA Healthcare

In 1968, HCA’s founders – Dr. Thomas Frist Sr., Dr. Thomas Frist Jr. and Jack C. Massey – firmly planted our culture in a commitment to provide superior healthcare with warmth and compassion for patients, colleagues and communities. As we celebrate our 50th year as a company, our founders’ purpose, values and beliefs still shape our organization.
