Partnering With Physicians

Physicians have always been at the heart of HCA Healthcare—two of our three founders were physicians. We believe partnering with and empowering our physicians to deliver exceptional care is the best way to guide advances in medicine across our network. Together, we champion the practice of medicine for a healthier world.

Physician Support

Our partnership with physicians allows access, support and opportunities to practice with one of the country's most successful healthcare networks. By giving them the clinical resources they need to deliver high-quality care, HCA Healthcare provides physicians an environment where they get what they need to succeed, and where success is defined by a patient's outcomes and experience.

We recognize the value of actively seeking physician feedback and implementing changes based on their input. We have a robust team of dedicated physician relations professionals, and we make sure physician feedback influences our clinical and business operations at the highest level.

We continually invest in our healthcare system, providing state-of-the-art facilities, cutting-edge technology and greater access to innovative clinical care. In recent years, our integrated network has shown consistent patient volume growth, resulting in more competitive growth opportunities for the physicians who practice with us.
