Based at HCA Healthcare in Nashville, Tenn., Vic learned about family-first values and hard work while growing up in the small town of Anderson, Ind., and on the nearby farm where his father was raised. Personable and charismatic, he relies on a simple rule when engaging people: The deeper your connection, the more faith they have in you.
How would you summarize your experience at HCA Healthcare? I live and breathe this organization. It’s my second home, and I care like family for many of my close colleagues. As I tell my kids and young folks, “Find something that you love, and it will never feel like work.”
What’s your favorite thing about working here? The people. The Frist family and the many incredible people they’ve brought to our hospitals are what have kept me here for more than 45 years. [HCA Healthcare co-founder] Dr. Frist, Sr. was often quoted saying, “Good people beget good people.” HCA Healthcare leadership today still lives by this motto.
