HCA as a company is an over all caring and wonderful company to work with. I worked at several HCA hospitals and would gladly go back to one. The workplace culture at each facility was somewhat different at each one but overall is one of caring and wanting to do the right thing for the patient and the staff.
My experience with HCA as an intern was ok. I thought I'd be picked up for a full-time position after graduation but that didn't happen. Everyone else who works there seems to like the company well enough. I don't really have any complaints. The employees were nice and there was an overall positive atmosphere, other than the personal problems people had with one another.

The company as a whole is good but department wise need to be assessed in terms of employee worth. The option to work from home in IT time to time should be enforced as it helps with employee shifts being that traffic is often an issue with timely attendance.
Sr. Data Analyst, (Contract) (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – April 23, 2019
I was there for 2 months as contractor and waited for position for two months. It was contract and I wanted FTE. A position with another company was presented for FTE and I discussed it with my manager and asked them for input as I wanted to be rehire status. I was advised absolutely. I have since applied for positions that I am more than qualified for and I cant get a response. I believe there is something else going on as it makes no sense. I loved the company and want to go back.

Management style and work life balance varies greatly depending on which department you are in. PTO structure for those in HR is very poor. Despite many complaints and problems recruiting because of poor PTO, no change is made.
I would recommend them to any anyone looking for a place to work

I worked for them as a contractor for over a year. Original contract was for 6 months. Also when I was offered a permanent position at another company I was able to work with leadership to finish the contract I had with them remotely instead of coming into the office. Leadership wanted to keep me but the salary difference was substantial at the newer job.
The Project Management Assistant Program is face paced, competitive, and challenging. The program is designed to accelerate your career at HCA and employees usually see 3 promotions within the first couple years

If you are looking for a place to work that has job security this is the place. Excellent people to work with and has a team environment. typical day of work depends on the department you work in but is overall laid back.
HCA corporate IT has a number of the most talented people I have ever worked with. The pace can be fast at times, but it usually isn't gruelling. In general the management looks out for your best interests. If you are at the top of your game and are not afraid of supporting a massively scaled environment, then it is definitely worth looking in to a job here.
The number one skill needed to survive is the ability to do some automation. PowerShell, APIs, Ansible... anything you can use to get more done with less is critical due to the scale of the environment.
