Giving and volunteering
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic means giving back and volunteering continued to look a little different in 2021, but the commitment and creativity of our colleagues to support our communities through this new normal remained intact.

American Red Cross
A beacon of hope when disaster strikes
HCA Healthcare shares a long history of partnering with the American Red Cross to provide disaster relief. Our partnership means we are able to stay ready to respond to emergencies and support our communities during the most difficult times, thanks to planning and preparation drills and full-scale disaster exercises that ensure we can deploy teams and resources when needed. In 2021, HCA Healthcare made our third consecutive $500,000 contribution to the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program. Over the last five years, we’ve provided more than $4.6 million in financial support to the Red Cross for shared disaster response capabilities and relief efforts, including the Texas winter storms in 2021 and the tornadoes in Kentucky. We also provide Red Cross leaders with access to our emergency response information system to help coordinate their activities.

Supporting mental health education with EVERFI
HCA Healthcare is committed to supporting the growing need for mental health education in communities and the mental well-being of kids and adolescents. We are proud to partner with EVERFI, an international technology company driving social change through education, to launch Mental Wellness Basics, a digital resource that introduces middle and high school students to mental health education.
The course is designed to build awareness and empathy, reduce stigma, and provide facts about the symptoms and prevalence of mental health conditions, including instruction about how to notice when mental health is at risk and choices that may help in reducing the severity of symptoms.
