We show up.
“We show up” isn’t just something we say, it’s something we do each day, no matter the circumstance. The past two years have delivered immense challenges for our nation — especially for the healthcare industry and frontline caregivers. However, through it all, we have grown stronger and discovered new and innovative ways to uplift our mission.
This annual Impact Report recognizes the teamwork, sacrifices, and commitment of our physicians, nurses, and colleagues; the many ways we show up for our patients and communities; and the innovative work we’re doing to advance the practice of medicine for years to come.
In 2021, HCA Healthcare colleagues demonstrated incredible compassion and resilience while continuing to respond to the ever-changing pandemic. We’re proud to have accelerated COVID-19 research while treating more COVID-19 inpatients than any other health system in the country. We remained committed to advancing patient care and scaling innovations; supporting our colleagues and their families with expanded benefits and programs; making progress on our diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives; practicing environmental stewardship; and discovering new ways to improve more lives in more ways.
We’re also proud to present our 2022 nursing strategy, which focuses on advocacy and leadership, staffing and care team support, education and academic partnerships, and professional practice. Nurses are the cornerstone of patient care, and HCA Healthcare is committed to investing in and advancing nurses while addressing staffing challenges.
I am confident that the results presented and stories shared will demonstrate how our integrated HCA Healthcare network creates more resources, more solutions, and more possibilities for everyone who walks through our doors.
