In 2020, HCA Healthcare formed various partnerships to support hospitals and caregivers around the world — not just our own — in the fight against COVID-19.
COVID-19 National Response Portal
HCA Healthcare teamed up with Google Cloud and SADA to launch the National Response Portal, a platform intended to promote data-sharing about the COVID-19 pandemic in an effort to help hospitals and communities prepare and respond. The portal aggregates data on ICU bed and ventilator utilization, testing results and total number of patient visits to America’s hospital systems, helping to accelerate analysis and response.
National Health Service
HCA Healthcare UK partnered with the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) to make resources available to them and take on additional responsibilities. It was a huge shift in our business model and a major contribution to the U.K. healthcare system, relieving pressure on the NHS to enable them to focus on the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
HCA Healthcare participated in an industry-wide #MaskUp campaign with 100 of the nation’s top healthcare systems, representing thousands of hospitals, to encourage everyone to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Dynamic Ventilator Reserve
HCA Healthcare provided as many as 1,000 ventilators as part of the American Hospital Association’s public-private collaboration with the federal government and health systems to distribute this critical piece of equipment to hospitals experiencing a surge of patients with COVID-19.
