Capital Regional Parent Company, HCA Healthcare, Recognized by Military Times

Earlier this month, HCA Healthcare, an extension of Capital Regional Medical Center, was recognized by Military Times as a Best Employer for veterans in the country, having hired more than 39,000 veterans, active-duty members and military spouses since 2012.

Capital Regional Medical Center is a fully accredited healthcare facility with more than 1,400 employees, 54 of whom are veterans who they have proudly employed through their military employment programs, benefits and support.

The recognition was based on the many programs and implementation that have been made for veterans by HCA Healthcare that include:

• Launching an internal mentoring program for veterans and military spouses, which has been successful in helping recently transitioned veterans navigate the civilian workforce.

• Offering military leave and supplemental pay to eligible colleagues and supporting those who want to continue to serve as active duty military while working at the Company.

• Partnering with the U.S. Army Medical Recruiting Brigade to create the Patriot Partnership Program allowing the Army to provide specialized training for residency and fellowship programs nationwide.

• Serving on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Veteran Employment and Military Spouse Employment Councils.

• Working with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation on the “Hiring 100,000 Military Spouses” campaign to help military spouses seeking meaningful 21st-century career opportunities.

Back in 2015, the Federation of American Hospitals also recognized HCA Healthcare along with Veteran Affairs for working to lower MRSA infection rates. They were applauded for leading by example and continuing with their commitment.

Sam Hazen, chief executive officer of HCA Healthcare, said they are honored to be recognized as a Best Employer for their commitment to supporting veterans and are immensely thankful to those that have chosen to serve our country and now serve their patients in communities across the nation.
