Company History

 In the mid-1960s, Dr. Frist, Jack C. Massey and Dr. Thomas Frist, Jr. came together with the dream of meeting “a community need for superior hospital care at the lowest possible cost.” By 1968 our founders had formed their own hospital management company – Hospital Corporation of America, today known simply as HCA.

Soon HCA decided to expand the scope of its venture by assembling a group of hospitals in order to create economies of scale and enhance the quality of care in communities across the country. HCA worked closely with local physicians and used innovative business practices to improve quality and reduce costs.

The company grew rapidly, building new hospitals in under-served communities, acquiring facilities and contracting to manage hospitals for other owners. With 11 hospitals, HCA filed its initial public offering in 1969. By the end of the year, HCA had 26 hospitals and 3,000 beds. The company invested capital to ensure that hospitals met the needs of their local communities. And while HCA provided support and resources to its facilities, hospital management decisions were made locally.

The 1970s were characterized by rapid growth in the industry and also for HCA. By the end of 1981, the company operated 349 hospitals with more than 49,000 beds. Operating revenues had grown to $2.4 billion.

In 1987, HCA, which had grown to operate 463 hospitals, spun off HealthTrust, a privately owned, 104-hospital company. Believing its stock was undervalued, the company completed a $5.1 billion leveraged buyout in 1988. HCA reemerged as a public company in 1992.

In February 1994, HCA merged with Columbia, which had acquired Galen Health Care in September 1993. The new company then acquired Medical Care America and several other healthcare businesses, quickly building a comprehensive healthcare network.

In 1997, Dr. Frist, Jr. returned as Chairman and CEO and immediately announced plans to restructure the company and focus on providing high quality healthcare through a core group of market leading hospitals.

In May 1999, HCA completed the spin-offs of LifePoint and Triad Hospital groups.

On November 17, 2006, HCA became a private company for the third time when it completed a merger in which the company was acquired by a private investor group including affiliates of Bain Capital, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and Merrill Lynch Global Private Equity, and HCA founder Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Jr. The total transaction was valued at approximately $33 billion, making it the largest leveraged buyout in history at the time.

Currently, Richard M. Bracken serves as the company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Based in Nashville, Tenn., today HCA remains the nation’s leading provider of healthcare services, composed of locally managed facilities that include approximately 166 hospitals and 112 outpatient centers in 20 states and England.

Mission & Values

Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.  In recognition of this commitment, we strive to deliver high-quality, cost-effective healthcare in the communities we serve.

In pursuit of our mission, we believe the following value statements are essential and timeless.

  • We recognize and affirm the unique and intrinsic worth of each individual.
  • We treat all those we serve with compassion and kindness.
  • We act with absolute honesty, integrity and fairness in the way we conduct our business and the way we live our lives.
  • We trust our colleagues as valuable members of our healthcare team and pledge to treat one another with loyalty, respect and dignity.

  • Healthy Work Environment – Building on Our Commitment to You

    Everyone is a contributor to creating a great place to work. At HCA, we believe our success is dependent on a Healthy Work Environment where caregivers, staff, administrators, physicians and volunteers are at the core of a patients-first culture. At the heart of everything we do is applying the same compassion and commitment we have for our patients to our co-workers and colleagues. We work hard to create a place where employees feel empowered to provide the best care possible and experience a rewarding career.

    Our commitment to a healthy work environment includes a focus on five key areas - Culture, Leadership, Voice, Compensation/Rewards and Staffing. We know if we do well in each of these areas, our employees will be able to provide the safest, highest-quality and most compassionate service to our patients.

     A Healthy Work Environment is one that gives you the support and resources necessary to be successful and enjoy a rewarding career. We work hard to maintain an environment in which you are respected and we depend on you to help our Company succeed.

    You are part of an organization with a long history of compassion and service to patients. As a member of the HCA family, you can be assured of:

  • A safe place to work
  • Having the tools, equipment and training necessary to perform your duties
  • Open and available communication with your supervisors and your leadership team
  • A fair application of workplace policies, procedures and disciplinary proceedings
  • Fair and understandable compensation and benefits

  • A Healthy Work Environment is Essential to Our Success
    Together, we’re working to improve clinical care and patient satisfaction, maintain a focus on growth and appropriately manage costs. These goals are best achieved by having a motivated and engaged workforce.

    There is a connection between a Healthy Work Environment and facility performance. High performing facilities do well in five key areas — culture, leadership, voice, rewards and staffing. These facilities benefit from higher employee engagement, lower turnover, better quality, lower risk and claims, more satisfied employees, physicians and patients and better financial results. By sharing the best practices of our successful facilities across the organization, we improve the work experience for all HCA employees.

    Working Here

     Our Company has many facilities and leaders but one culture — a culture of compassion and dedication to quality patient care. That commitment also extends to employees. We enjoy a diverse employee population representing a variety of ages, ethnicities and professions. Respect for this blend of perspectives is demonstrated by:

  • A Company Culture that values you as an individual, treats you fairly and is supportive of your involvement in the community.
  • A “For Cause” Employment Standard in which your employment cannot be ended without a valid reason.
  • An Inclusive Work Environment where we recruit and retain a diverse staff reflective of the patients and communities we serve and celebrate our cultural differences.
  • A Clear Process to Resolve Disputes or Disciplinary Actions which can include, at your request, peer review by your colleagues and in certain cases, binding arbitration by an independent party at no cost to you.
  • The HCA Hope Fund, a non-profit organization run by employees for employees who are in need of financial assistance due to a disaster or personal crisis.
  • A Commitment to Fair, Understandable and Accurate Time Reporting around meals and breaks to help balance your work and rest periods and ensure you are paid correctly should your meal break be interrupted or missed.
  • A Culture of Safety which is characterized by leadership and employee involvement to help protect you and our patients from a range of occupational risks.
  • The HCA Innovators Award recognizes and rewards employees for creating valuable ideas that further our Mission and can be replicated at other HCA facilities.

  • Why HCA?
    HCA Far West offers strong teamwork in patient-safety environments that value you and allow you to do what you do best.
