    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time

    Pros

    Great place to build experience and jump start career in the healthcare world. HCA is large and versatile with lots of room for improvements, so you'll never be bored.

    Cons

    Onboarding and continuous management training programs need to be in place!! There is a lack of communication between HCA physician services directors and physicians. More partnership between hospitals and physician practices is necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to be more approachable and aware of what is going on internally in day to day practices. Higher ups should be more familiar with physicians and have more presence when rolling out corporate initiatives.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great interview process. The initial interviewer was the dept Mgr. But the 2nd interview was with the members of the dept. I was told that this was to see if I fit into b the culture of the dept.

    Cons

    The position was PRN (as needed), yet assert I accepted the position, I was told that I needed to work a minimum of 30hrs/wk. That interfered with my other obligations, so I resigned after only 3 mos.

    The training in Austin was unprofessional and drawn out to lay two weeks
