HCA Healthcare – Why Work For Us?


Above all else, HCA is committed to the care and improvement of human life.

As the nation’s largest private provider of healthcare, our scale enables us to deliver great outcomes for our patients, provide superior nursing care and be a preferred place for physicians to practice medicine in 43 distinct markets. Our pursuit of insights and care advances based on the knowledge and data we gain from an unparalleled 30 million patient encounters a year enables us to move healthcare forward. In recent years, our proprietary research and trials have enhanced our clinical capabilities to drive down incidences of blood stream infections (including MRSA), maternal mortality, infant mortality and NICU admission, just to name a few.

One out of every 18 emergency room visits occurs at an HCA Healthcare facility and our hospitals welcome to the world about one out of every 17 babies born each day in the U.S. These are big numbers, and they are important to understanding HCA Healthcare. But for
HCA Healthcare, size is not an end, but a means. What’s more important is how we harness our unmatched knowledge and resources in pursuit of our mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

Why HCA?

HCA’s unprecedented scale and unequalled commitment to excellent patient care creates unlimited clinical and administrative career opportunities. Whether it’s a research and teaching hospital equipped with the latest technology, clinical trials testing groundbreaking medical procedures, or a small-town setting that combines clinical excellence with the intimacy of a community hospital, you’ll find what you are looking for in a career at HCA.  

HCA also offers numerous graduate medical education programs to train physicians, nurse residency programs that help orient new graduate nurses for career success, and executive residency and leadership development programs for future healthcare industry executives and innovators. Whatever your career goal in healthcare, HCA can help you achieve it.    

 Culture HCA 

Healthcare facilities, leaders and team members are diverse, but share a common culture committed to compassionate, expert and high-quality care for patients, families, communities and each other. Respect and inclusion are part of the fabric of HCA, shown by our commitment to offer culturally competent care to families speaking more than 150 different languages.    

The Way Healthcare was Intended

Nursing at HCA 

HCA Healthcare places a premium on superior nursing care because it differentiates us and drives our ability to deliver excellent patient outcomes. We are committed to being a desirable career destination by investing in our nurses and helping them develop professionally and individually. To support nurses as they care for and about patients, we consistently invest in technologies, capital improvements, infrastructure and clinical education. We also prioritize our focus on safety, quality and experience—the three things that matter most to our patients. If we continue to do all of these things, we will continue to make HCA Healthcare a place where nurses want to be and a place where our nurses can create healthier tomorrows for every patient we serve—and for each other as well. The foundation of career advancement is continued education, and HCA provides these opportunities to nursing professionals.    

  • It starts from the beginning, with enterprise-wide HCA Nurse Residency designed to hone the clinical skills and professional development of new nurses through a  structured 12-month training program. 
  • Educational reimbursement is available to help those pursuing external degrees.  
  • An enterprise-wide med-surg nursing program and a new critical care program allow skill development and opportunities to gain national certifications throughout a clinical career. 
  • For those aspiring to leadership, HCA offers Charge Nurse Certification, a cohort-based Director Development program for future Emergency and Surgical Services department leaders, and a selective Executive Development Program to expand the pipeline of nurses prepared to serve as nursing executives or facility administrators. There are many examples throughout HCA of talented people starting in nursing and rising to division or corporate executive roles.

    Pros

    The leaders care about investing in their people. Once you're in, they try to help navigate your career and growth. Leadership is expected to mentor people. Leadership awards and recognizes staff regularly through Spot Awards, Star Awards, Fred of the Quarter awards, 365 Hero Awards, and even rewarding participants with gift cards during meetings (for participating in team building activities). The compensation is great, to include the benefits packages. They now offer to pay $150 per month towards your Student Loans (they don't deduct this from your check, it is extra money the company is giving away to your loan servicer). They have Adoption Assistance (they give you a big chunk of money to help you adopt), they offer Scholarships for the Children of Employees, Tuition Reimbursement, Stock Options, 401K, and so much more! People get promoted often. I absolutely feel blessed to have been selected to work for this company. They believe in Servant Leadership and constantly expect their leaders to develop. In addition, since HCA is so big, you can move to a different state and still stay with the same company but different Division.

    Cons

    It can be quite difficult to get hired. The application process/interview to job offer can sometimes take longer than a month.
