“The Frist Humanitarian Award recipients work selflessly to improve the lives of people in need, in their communities and around the world,” says Milton Johnson, Chairman and CEO. “Their commitment to the care and improvement of human life inspires all of us to continue the philanthropic work of HCA Healthcare’s founders.”
HCA Healthcare recognizes the exceptional compassion and caring of colleagues in three categories: Physician, Employee and Volunteer.
In addition to the award – an engraved bronze statue of Dr. Frist – the employee and volunteer recipients receive a $5,000 cash gift and a $5,000 donation to the charity of their choice. The physician recipient earns a $10,000 donation to the charity of his or her choice.
