Hospital Corporation of America – Why Work For Us?

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

 HCA stands for the best practices of medicine, using our reach, scale and stability to transform healthcare and help patients and communities thrive. HCA Healthcare has been named to Ethisphere’s list of “World’s Most Ethical Companies” for eight years in a row.   

Facilities and teams across HCA share a common culture – an unparalleled commitment to care for patients, families, communities and each other. No matter the role, everyone at HCA is a caregiver. Whether you work in a physician practice or freestanding emergency center; in hospital labor and delivery, oncology, pharmacy, food and nutrition or accounting; enterprise IT service management, clinical services, or human resources, we all play a part in fulfilling HCA Healthcare’s mission: caring for and improving 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

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 

Nurses are the cornerstone of our mission to provide exceptional care to our patients. Nurses at HCA have the opportunity to grow and develop in their careers across a multitude of roles within HCA’s national network, and influence patient care far beyond the walls of one hospital.  Because of HCA’s scale, when nurses discover best practices for nursing care here it changes the practice of nursing across the country – and the world. HCA nurses help develop innovative solutions to improve patient care and enhance the nursing experience, and HCA uses technology that enables nurses to spend more time where they want to be: at the patient’s bedside. 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.
