Dear HCA Healthcare colleagues,
At HCA Healthcare, we strive to give our patients the care they deserve whenever they need our services. We make this happen through your efforts coupled with the distinct capabilities of our organization. In 2023, we continued on our journey to improve outcomes for all our stakeholders. I’m proud of what we have accomplished over the past year.
We invested record amounts of capital to expand our networks with more hospital capacity, new outpatient facilities, and better clinical technology. Throughout the year, our quality outcomes improved and are now better than they were pre-pandemic. We also invested significantly in our efforts to strengthen our workforce across all disciplines including physicians. And finally, we initiated a number of plans to improve our digital capabilities, which we believe will allow us to strengthen patient safety, improve quality outcomes, and enhance the work environment making it more efficient for everyone.
In the year ahead, we will continue on this journey while staying true to our mission. Our planned investments in each of these initiatives will outpace this past year. The stories in the winter issue of HCA Healthcare Magazine illustrate our focus on being the provider of choice within our communities. You will see some of our efforts in clinical research and in the development of innovative care models.
None of this is possible without the steadfast commitment and outstanding work you and your colleagues provide to our patients. Thank you.
