During National Hospital Week, May 10–16, HCA Healthcare is recognizing the amazing people who are the lifeblood of our 186 hospitals.
“Our hospitals, and the colleagues who serve within them, are part of, and fundamental to, valuable community infrastructure,” says HCA Healthcare’s CEO, Sam Hazen. “Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life. I appreciate the sacrifices you and your colleagues make to honor this mission. As we celebrate hospital week, I want to thank you for your dedication, your hard work, and for being a part of HCA Healthcare.”
This year, our colleagues have faced unprecedented adversity, and they’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty to care for patients—and for one another. The stories that have emerged from our hospitals during the coronavirus pandemic demonstrate the strength, compassion and ingenuity of our HCA Healthcare colleagues. And these stories aren’t limited to those of the colleagues caring directly for patients fighting COVID-19. They cross all disciplines, from IT to food and nutrition services to environmental services and many more.
Here are just a few examples of teamwork throughout HCA Healthcare that we’d like to highlight in honor of Hospital Week 2020.
