Continued support of our workforce

At HCA Healthcare, we are committed to supporting our colleagues, especially during times of crisis.

In response to the stay-at-home mandates in different states, we expanded our work-from-home (WFH) practices for our nonclinical colleagues to help ensure their safety in the face of COVID-19.

Our focus remains on supporting and protecting all colleagues — whether they are working at a patient’s bedside in our hospitals, in our facilities or remotely.

Financial support

Early in the pandemic, we made the decision not to lay off or furlough any full-time or part-time colleagues, and we have kept this promise.

Pandemic pay

To help prepare for the economic impact of COVID-19, HCA Healthcare implemented and expanded a number of programs to help financially support our colleagues and physicians. At a time when hundreds of hospitals and healthcare systems were laying off or furloughing colleagues, our organization launched a special pandemic pay program, which guaranteed that full- and part-time colleagues in clinical and nonclinical support services who could not be redeployed to other facilities would continue to receive 70% of their base pay if they were not scheduled for their full shifts.
