Happy Nurses Week 2017! HCA Healthcare nurses change lives for the better and contribute to higher standards of care throughout our industry. I am proud to serve alongside our more than 81,000 nurses and witness the passion with which they care for hundreds of thousands of patients and families across 20 states and the United Kingdom.

In the course of work each day, nurses are many times the healthcare professionals that patients recall most frequently from their time within our healthcare facilities. In the video tribute below, we capture people representing lives who have been positively affected by nurses, who simply want to say “thank you.” We join them in expressing our appreciation to all HCA nurses for all they do to model our mission to care for and improve human life.
