Our Community Impact
Our network is bound together by a single purpose: to create healthier tomorrows for every patient we serve. This purpose-driven brand reflects the unity of Florida’s extensive network of specialists and dedicated healthcare experts delivering top-quality care to patients across the Sunshine State. Our impact is made possible by our incredible colleagues, communities and strategic partners who embrace HCA Florida Healthcare’s mission and values.

Caring for our Sunshine State communities
Whether through volunteering our time, making charitable donations or partnering with other organizations, we are committed to creating healthier tomorrows for our Florida communities.
The Healthier Tomorrow Fund provides grants to nonprofit organizations in 25 communities, including Miami, Palm Beach, Tampa, Tallahassee and Orlando, with plans to expand to additional markets. With a focus on high priority community needs and health equity, the Healthier Tomorrow Fund supports collaboration with organizations like the American Heart Association and Volunteers for America.
Inspiring the next generation
We are committed to supporting early exposure and access to healthcare careers to reduce workforce shortages, increase talent diversity and improve student retention and advancement. Initiatives like Mini Medical University and Pathway to Success give students the opportunity to learn first-hand from healthcare providers about careers in the medical field.
Mini Medical University
The HCA Florida Healthcare Mini Medical University is a one-of-a-kind learning experience for high school students interested in learning more about careers in medicine. This action-packed, hands on education program focuses on experiential activities as well as direct interaction with staff and physicians.
Championing positive mental wellness
We work to foster a supportive environment for mental wellness and increase access to services for youth and other vulnerable populations. Our partnership with EVERFI provides mental health education and support students through an interactive, digital education course provided in middle and high schools.
Caring for our colleagues
We are committed to helping our colleagues achieve their personal and professional goals and ensuring that everyone on our team feels fulfilled in their career. This includes mental health services, leadership training and veteran support.
We have a longstanding connection to the U.S. armed forces, military veterans and their families. Since 2012, we have hired more than 40,000 veterans, active-duty personnel and military spouses. In 2021, the Military Times named HCA Healthcare one of the country’s best employers for military-connected employment programs, benefits and support. We have also been nationally recognized as a military-friendly employer and military spouse-friendly employer for 11 consecutive years by VIQTORY.
HCA Healthcare Hope Fund
The HCA Healthcare Hope Fund is a colleague-run, colleague-supported 501(c)(3) charity that helps colleagues and their immediate families when faced with financial hardship due to natural disaster, illness/injury, domestic violence, death of a loved one or other difficult situations.
As part of We Show Up for Our Communities Week, colleagues from HCA Florida Ocala Hospital and HCA Florida West Marion Hospital came together to support the City of Ocala Parks and Recreation by helping clean up Tuscawilla Park.
