HCA Healthcare has donated $500,000 to the American Red Cross to help people affected by Hurricane Florence. In South Carolina, HCA Healthcare has five hospital campuses, including Grand Strand Medical Center, the only Level 1 trauma center in the eastern part of the state, and 38 other sites of care. “As a health care provider, caring for people in their time of need is deeply embedded in HCA Healthcare’s culture,” said Milton Johnson, chairman and CEO of HCA Healthcare. “We have a long history of serving communities throughout South Carolina, and we are pleased to support Hurricane Florence relief efforts by the Red Cross.” The HCA Hope Fund – an employee-run, employee-supported 501(c)(3) charity that provides financial aid and resources to employees after extended illness, injury, disaster or other special situations – also is providing grants to HCA employees affected by the recent storm.
