Supporting our clinicians and each other
Supporting our clinicians and each other
With more than 93,000 nurses and 45,000 active and affiliated physicians delivering high-quality care to our patients, HCA Healthcare is committed to listening to our colleagues and providing the resources and support they need. We aim to support the physical, mental, professional and financial health of our approximately 294,000 colleagues, and we’re proud to invest in a variety of benefits and resources to help improve their overall well-being.
*Data represents U.S.-based colleagues as of Dec. 31, 2022.
Engagement remains a key focus for HCA Healthcare. Throughout 2022, our Human Resources Group (HRG) conducted targeted retention training workshops for more than 2,580 managers across the organization to showcase best practices and train leaders on the power of building meaningful connections with colleagues.
Eighty-six percent of facilities that participated in the training saw a reduction in full-time/part-time turnover and 96% saw a reduction in full-time/part-time registered nurse turnover. On average, those facilities that participated in the training achieved an 18.5% decrease in annualized nurse turnover compared to those facilities that did not participate.
Through Vital Voices, HRG conducts pulse surveys twice a year to gather feedback from colleagues about their experiences. At the end of 2022, our engagement index increased back to pre-pandemic levels. We saw improvements on nearly every question and no scores declined. The most notable gain was made in the recognition category, due in part to our Colleague Recognition Program.
