We believe in always doing what is right for our patients, and we continually develop technologies and programs that positively impact our patients’ healthcare experience. Our scale enables us to deliver everything from first-class, cutting edge clinical research to individualized patient health solutions. With more than 180 hospitals and 2,000 sites of care across the United States and the United Kingdom, HCA Healthcare is a comprehensive healthcare network of locally managed healthcare facilities.
We’re one of the nation’s leading providers of healthcare services, and are proud that many of the nation’s best-performing hospitals are a part of the HCA Healthcare family.* And, we’re proud to be the nation’s largest sponsor of graduate medical education, with 250+ residency and fellowship program offered to 3,300 residents.
As part of our commitment to give patients the best care possible, our enterprise gives its 38,000 affiliated physicians more voice, more capacity, more clinical capabilities and more opportunities for growth.
Whether you’re looking for opportunities to grow your practice or want to relocate, we offer more options to join us, and more benefits for joining.
We place a high value on physician input, and in 2018 we conducted more than 575,000 calls with physicians to gain insights on resources, issues and efficiencies. In response, physicians are connected with leaders who create action plans for improvement or resolution.
To allow physicians more time to spend with patients, we offer access to state-of-the-art facilities, the latest in medical technology and actionable insights from our vast network of patient data.
Through proprietary research and trials based on clinical data from more than 31 million patient encounters, we have dramatically driven down incidence of bloodstream infections (including MRSA), maternal mortality, infant mortality, NICU admissions and more.
Our integrated network shows consistent patient volume growth, resulting in more competitive growth opportunities for the physicians who practice with us. Our leading business management and operational excellence allows us to consistently make significant investments in local hospitals and communities to improve, add to and update facilities and equipment. In 2019 alone, we invested $4.2 billion in land, buildings and equipment.
With 250+ residency and fellowship programs, HCA Healthcare plans to continue to grow the largest GME community in the United States. HCA Healthcare offers GME programs across a broad spectrum of specialties, in locations across the country.

HCA Healthcare Co-Founder
From the beginning, HCA Healthcare founders Dr. Thomas Frist, Sr., Dr. Thomas Frist, Jr. and Jack Massey envisioned creating a healthcare company with the scale, resources and clinical expertise to provide patient-focused care at a time when many communities were growing rapidly and needed more access to healthcare. In 1968, they formed Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) – one of the first hospital companies in the United States.
