April, 30, 2021 – HCA Healthcare (Nashville, TN) was recognized on the 2021 LinkedIn Top Companies ranking, an annual guide that identifies the best places for professionals to grow their careers and develop skills.
HCA says that the ranking acknowledges organizations for investing in employee success, career development, and equity and inclusion.
As cited by LinkedIn, at a time when hundreds of hospitals and healthcare systems were laying off or furloughing colleagues, HCA Healthcare implemented a special pandemic pay program that benefited more than 127,000 colleagues and guaranteed that colleagues who could not be redeployed to other facilities would continue to receive 70% of their base pay.
“Since day one of the pandemic, our top priority has been to protect our colleagues – to keep them safe and keep them employed – so they can best care for our patients,” said Sam Hazen, CEO of HCA Healthcare. “The past year has brought tremendous challenges, especially for those working in the healthcare industry, and we are grateful to be recognized as a Top Company by LinkedIn for our investment in our people. More importantly, we are honored to support our 275,000 colleagues who continue to show up to serve their communities throughout this public health crisis.”
