HCA Healthcare has donated $1 million to the American Red Cross to assist those affected by Hurricane Michael. HCA Healthcare has 45 hospitals in Florida, including Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in Panama City, which sustained significant damage from the hurricane.
 
“We are seeing firsthand the devastation Hurricane Michael has caused to communities in the Florida Panhandle where many of our patients and thousands of our colleagues live,” said HCA Healthcare Chairman and CEO Milton Johnson. “I’m humbled by the way our colleagues in Florida are caring for our patients, the community and each other, and we’re honored to support the Red Cross’ relief efforts in Florida.”
 
Last month, HCA Healthcare provided $500,000 in support to the Red Cross for Hurricane Florence relief efforts in the Carolinas.
 
HCA Healthcare has established three shelters – in Panama City, Niceville and Fort Walton Beach – for the hundreds of HCA Healthcare employees whose homes were significantly damaged by Hurricane Michael. 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.
