HCA Healthcare Unites to Care for Texas
The strength of Hurricane Harvey is no match for the strength of the HCA Healthcare family.
HCA Healthcare is donating $1 million to the American Red Cross to help people affected by Hurricane Harvey. In addition, HCA will match employees’ donations to the HCA Hope Fund, the company’s employee assistance nonprofit organization, up to $1 million.
“HCA’s culture of caring is never more evident than when adversity strikes, and I’m proud to say that over the last few days countless members of the HCA family have pulled together to support the needs of our facilities in Houston and Corpus Christi,” said Milton Johnson, chairman and chief executive officer of HCA. “Our donations to the American Red Cross and the HCA Hope Fund will help care for people and communities in need.”
