Fall 2022: Message from the CEO

October 12, 2022

HCA Healthcare colleagues,

HCA Healthcare has always prioritized innovation and the pursuit of excellence.

So far this year, I’ve had the privilege of visiting several of our hospitals and witnessed firsthand many incredible accomplishments taking place across the enterprise. It is inspiring to see the lasting impact you are making on your patients and communities.

Together, we are creating safer and more innovative solutions that make for healthier communities. Nowhere is that more evident than among this year’s HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction finalists and recipients, featured in this issue of the HCA Healthcare Magazine. Our Awards of Distinction are the most prestigious honors we bestow as an organization. These colleagues and their life-changing contributions are true examples of our mission and the legacy of our founders.

It is a privilege to celebrate them.

At HCA Healthcare, we will never tire of seeking out industry-leading practices, partnerships, and technology. Your courage and commitment are what makes that possible.

From unparalleled transplant services to essential mental health resources, we remain focused on improving patient outcomes, developing future leaders, and finding ways to support our mission.

I am grateful for your dedication to those you serve. Thank you for your willingness to go above and beyond when it matters most.


Sam Hazen

CEO, HCA Healthcare
