As part of the HCA Healthcare family, our colleagues work hard to help others achieve a healthier tomorrow. But, to be at their best, they also need to take care of themselves. That's why we offer a fair, smart and competitive benefits package that includes health and wellness benefits, retirement savings support, education assistance, time away from work and much more.
The following are some of the ways HCA Healthcare and colleagues across our enterprise show we care like family:
As technology advances and regulations shift, the healthcare industry is rapidly changing. The one altruistic constant for HCA Healthcare’s more than 270,000 colleagues is the desire to improve our patients’ lives through compassionate, innovative care. Inspired by this patient-centered culture, HCA Healthcare has committed up to $300 million to our incredible team members.
We provide up to $5,250 per year in tax-free reimbursement for accredited educational programs to help unlock colleagues' potential.
Additionally, our certifications support program pays testing fees and offers online prep assistance for select advanced clinical certifications.
Do you have student loans? We are proud to be one of the few companies that assist with student loan repayment.
We also invest in what matters most to our colleagues, including their children’s education. The HCA Healthcare Scholars program offers scholarships of up to $5,000 for dependent’s higher education expenses.
Galen College of Nursing:
As part of the HCA Healthcare family, Galen College of Nursing and HCA Healthcare have joined to make quality nursing education more accessible than ever. As one of the largest educators of nurses in the country, Galen’s mission is focused solely on nursing education with ground and online degree programs including associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s level education. Now, the HCA Healthcare-Galen grant significantly reduces tuition costs for the Online RN to BSN and two Online MSN options of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership, and Nursing Education. Additionally, eligible employees* may opt in to a Direct Bill Option which could limit up front tuition costs. Galen is proud to offer one-of-a-kind, custom curriculum, unparalleled support, and flexibility to fit education into busy life. Visit GalenCollege.edu/HCAhealthcare to learn more.

Eligible employees have medical plan options that offer coverage for office visits, preventive care, prescriptions (including free generic drugs for most plans), and inpatient and outpatient care. Many of the most common services require just a low copay and you do not need to meet the deductible.

We offer expanded family leave benefits including up to 14 calendar days a year of paid leave to bond with a new child (both mothers and fathers) or care for a family member with a serious health condition as defined by the Family & Medical Leave Act.
We support our colleagues who adopt through reimbursed agency, placement and legal fees, and travel expenses.
When life is getting difficult, it can help to talk with a professional. That’s why we offer free counseling and referral services through the Employee Assistance Program.
