At its founding in 1968, Nashville-based HCA was one of the nation's first hospital companies. Today, we are the nation's leading provider of healthcare services, a company comprised of locally managed facilities that includes about 163 hospitals and 109 freestanding surgery centers in 20 states and England and employing approximately 199,000 people. Approximately four to five percent of all inpatient care delivered in the country today is provided by HCA facilities. Richard M. Bracken serves as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of HCA, and R. Milton Johnson is the company’s President and Chief Financial Officer.
Shared Services Streamlines Administrative Functions
Shared Services is HCA's strategy to improve performance and reduce costs by consolidating in several non-clinical, administrative functions. Those functions include Patient Account Services (PAS), Supply Chain Services (SCS) and Payroll Services (PSC, Payroll Service Center), HIM Shared Services, and Credentialing Services. Streamlining in these areas allows us to direct additional resources to patient care and enhance our hospitals' fundamental focus on clinical services.
It's really about preserving our clinical core.
Everyone is a contributor to creating a great place to work. At HCA, we believe our success is dependent on a Healthy Work Environment where caregivers, staff, administrators, physicians and volunteers are at the core of a patients-first culture. At the heart of everything we do is applying the same compassion and commitment we have for our patients to our co-workers and colleagues. We work hard to create a place where employees feel empowered to provide the best care possible and experience a rewarding career.
