In the past year, HCA Healthcare colleagues have stood together through many trying circumstances. In the midst of the global pandemic, new weather-related disasters struck several of the communities we serve. The winter storms that fell upon large swaths of Texas in mid-February left millions of homes and businesses without electricity for days. In response, HCA Healthcare and affiliated hospitals offered support and assistance in numerous ways throughout the enterprise.
“Never before has a natural disaster directly impacted so many of our colleagues and our facilities, and it continues to affect the entire state,” said Sam Hazen, chief executive officer of HCA Healthcare. “I’m incredibly proud of the way our caregivers and teams in Texas stepped up to care for their neighbors and each other, and it is important that we are part of the recovery efforts.”
