National Nurses Week is an Appropriate Time for Reflection

National Nurses Week 2015, (May 6-12) is a great time for nurses to take stock of who we are, where we are and where we are going. Personally, I think this is a great time to be a nurse at HCA. The healthcare industry is undergoing significant transformative change and HCA-affiliated nurses have a front row seat. As a nurse at one of the world’s leading healthcare systems, we can both witness and influence change.

VIDEO: Happy Nurses Week!

Every day of the year, HCA-affiliated nurses engage with people at some of the most profound moments in their lives. These are sometimes life’s most joyous moments, like welcoming a new baby into the world. At other times, those moments can be life’s most difficult and sorrowful. In each of those moments of every day, across clinical and administrative roles, across the continuum-of-care settings and into the executive suites, we are thankful that HCA nurses are there.

How HCA Recycles Tons of Construction Debris & Materials Today for Use Tomorrow

HCA is serious about sustainability.  Most people think being “green” in our hospitals means closer management of medical waste, optimizing energy efficiency with heat and air systems and controlling lighting when areas are not in use.  But what about buildings that have served their useful life?  Each year HCA may replace and often reconfigures and enlarges existing facilities.  The HCA Design & Construction Department (D&C) has been overseeing efforts to recycle construction waste and demolition materials since 2009.  Just from 2012-2014 more than 114,000 tons of debris have been diverted from landfills.  Sound like a lot?  HCA construction projects recycled… Read more.
