Throughout the pandemic, we have remained committed to ensuring that our patients received the highest quality of care, while at the same time safeguarding all of our more than 275,000 colleagues.
In short: We have never wavered from our HCA Healthcare mission — the foundation of all that we do.
Like so many other things that have been done differently in the past 18 months or so, we gathered virtually instead of in-person for the 48th annual HCA Healthcare Awards of Distinction ceremony. But we were no less proud to recognize our remarkable finalists and recipients. The awards are the organization’s highest honors, spotlighting some of our finest colleagues, physicians and volunteers who, together, bring our mission and values to life every day.
“Our Awards of Distinction recipients represent what HCA Healthcare stands for: compassionate, quality patient care; innovative, forward-thinking ideas; and, above all, the care and improvement of human life,” says CEO Sam Hazen. “These are truly remarkable individuals, all with a passion for living our mission through their work.”
Here’s a snapshot of this year’s award recipients as well as the finalists in each category.
