Awards and recognition

The awards and recognition of our HCA Healthcare facilities and colleagues reflect the dedication to our mission and providing compassionate care and exceptional service to every patient, every time.

Patient care

HCA Healthcare was awarded the prestigious John M. Eisenberg Patient Safety and Quality Award for our pioneering work using artificial intelligence to help reduce deaths from sepsis, a potentially deadly condition caused by the body’s response to infection.

The technology — SPOT (Sepsis Prediction and Optimization of Therapy) — continuously monitors vital signs, laboratory results, nursing reports and other data to detect often-subtle changes in a patient’s condition. Clinicians are alerted to signs of sepsis as much as six hours earlier than previously possible.

Hospitals of distinction

In 2020, 17 HCA Healthcare hospitals in eight states earned spots on the Fortune magazine/IBM Watson Health’s ranking of 100 Top Hospitals. In addition, our Continental Division — which includes HealthONE, based in Denver, Colorado, and Wesley Healthcare, based in Wichita, Kansas — was named the nation’s No. 1 large health system.
