Fortune Names HCA Healthcare One of the World’s Most Admired Companies

36 HCA Healthcare hospitals also recognized on 2024 Fortune/PINC AI 100 Top Hospitals list

HCA Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE:HCA), one of the nation’s leading healthcare providers, today announced it has been named on Fortune’s 2024 World’s Most Admired Companies list. This year, HCA Healthcare is ranked first overall in its industry.

To determine this year’s list, Fortune collaborated with Korn Ferry to analyze 660 companies across 52 industries in 29 countries. The top-rated companies were rated by executives, directors and analysts on nine criteria: innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment, quality of products and services, and global competitiveness.

“It is a great honor to be included alongside other industry leaders on Fortune’s World’s Most Admired list this year,” said Sam Hazen, CEO of HCA Healthcare. “We are proud of the impact our colleagues are making through more than 43 million annual patient encounters, as well as the best practices and standards of care we are developing that help improve care with and beyond our network of hospitals.”

In 2023, HCA Healthcare recruited more than 116,500 colleagues, including 37,500 bedside nurses. To support its colleagues, HCA Healthcare offers a variety of programs, resources and opportunities, including education assistance, financial well-being programs and the HCA Healthcare Leadership Institute, which has graduated more than 21,200 colleagues since its inception in 2014.

HCA Healthcare strives to find new, innovative ways to elevate care delivery for its patients. The organization’s Care Transformation and Innovation (CT&I) team works closely with clinicians to refine tools, such as generative AI to assist care teams with time-consuming tasks like documentation and a scheduling and staffing solution for nurses, and to expand the use of technology throughout the organization.

HCA Healthcare’s dedication to improve more lives in more ways extends beyond the walls of its hospitals. The organization’s environmental strategy includes both short- and long-term sustainability plans and centers on incorporating four key pillars into operations, including managing energy and water responsibly, enhancing climate resilience, sourcing and consuming efficiently and managing the environmental impact of capital programs.

In addition to being a World’s Most Admired Company, 36 HCA Healthcare hospitals were named on the 2024 Fortune/PINC AI 100 Top Hospitals list. According to Fortune/PINC AI, this year’s list is based on an analysis of publicly available Medicare data that reflect measures of clinical outcomes, operational efficiency, patient experience and financial health.
