HCA Celebrates 40th Anniversary
Date:8/25/2008

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- HCA marked its 40th anniversary during a special program for employees today at the company's corporate office.

The event featured HCA Co-Founder and Chairman Emeritus, Dr. Thomas Frist, Jr. and HCA Chairman and CEO, Jack O. Bovender, Jr., who spoke about HCA's founding, mission and tradition of caring for patients, employees and the surrounding communities. The "Our History of Caring" program was a prelude to HCA's annual Caring for the Community employee giving campaign, which begins this week.

"My father, Jack Massey, Henry Hooker and I could have never conceived that HCA would grow into a company whose caregivers perform about 5% of many healthcare procedures in the U.S. and that Nashville would become a healthcare hub. I'm so proud of the impact our caregivers and employees have had over all these years as we've focused on treating our patients."

A long-time cornerstone of Nashville's healthcare industry, HCA was founded in 1968 by Frist, his father Dr. Thomas Frist, Sr., local businessman Henry Hooker and entrepreneur Jack Massey when Park View Hospital incorporated in May and became Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) in August of that year.

"I've spent almost my entire career with HCA because the principles Tommy, Dr. Frist. Sr. and our other founders believed in -- putting patients first and treating people with dignity -- are deeply ingrained in the bedrock of our company's culture," said Bovender. "It is because our employees and caregivers live these values everyday that HCA has prospered for 40 years."

At its founding, HCA was one of the nation's first hospital companies. HCA worked closely with local physicians and used innovative business practices and private capital to improve quality and efficiency. The company grew rapidly in
