Message from the CEO

December 03, 2020

In this issue of HCA Healthcare Magazine, we reflect on the past year, which truly has been exceptional on so many fronts.

HCA Healthcare colleagues,

In 2020, our organization faced unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But our collective dedication to our mission, and our promise to improve more lives in more ways, never wavered. 

The strength and compassion that you demonstrated throughout the past year are nothing short of inspiring. We expanded our capabilities to serve and provide quality care to millions of patients, and our commitment to our patients and communities only strengthened as times got harder. 

We say we care like family, and it shows. Even while managing significant changes in your personal lives, you went above and beyond to do the right thing for our patients, for each other, and for the communities we serve. 

In this issue of HCA Healthcare Magazine, we reflect on the past year, which truly has been exceptional on so many fronts. While there are many difficult emotions and memories to process, I believe you will share my feelings of pride and admiration for our HCA Healthcare family after reading these stories. 

I hope you are able to take time this holiday season to reflect on the strength, dedication, and commitment you and your fellow HCA Healthcare colleagues portrayed this year. I wish each of you a time of joy and rest among family and friends. We will continue to move forward in pursuit of our mission in 2021. 

Sincerely,

Sam Hazen

CEO, HCA Healthcare
