HCA Healthcare is committed to fostering a culture of inclusion and equity across all areas of our work and we expect a similar commitment from all of our partners. As part of HCA Healthcare, the Foundation and Corporate Sponsorship hold themselves to HCA’s Healthcare’s Commitment to Equity & Inclusion:
At HCA Healthcare, we believe excellence in healthcare starts with a foundation of inclusion, compassion and respect for our patients and each other. We are committed to fostering a culture of inclusion across all areas of our organization and do not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, disability, race, color, ancestry, citizenship, religion, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, medical condition, marital status, veteran status, payment source or ability, or any other basis prohibited by federal, state or local law.
A formal Commitment to Equity & Inclusion and attestation is now included at the beginning of the grant and sponsorship applications. Organizations will be asked to record their acceptance of this commitment to be considered for funding. Open communication and transparency are a cornerstone of the relationships with our community partners and will continue to be so. If there are questions from your staff or board members about this new application requirement, please let us know.
It is the policy of HCA Healthcare to contribute to activities, organizations, and causes in Middle Tennessee that advance both a public purpose (health/wellness, safety, cultural, general welfare) and a corporate purpose (furtherance of the Company’s interests, image and responsibilities).
The goal of HCA Healthcare is to focus support on the following areas:
In evaluation of sponsorship opportunities, priority will be given to organizations that are aligned with the areas listed above. Further priority will be given to organizations with involvement of HCA Healthcare employees as board members, advisory committee members, event chairs, and/or active and engaged volunteers. Because of the large number of HCA Healthcare employees who volunteer through HCA Healthcare’s Caring for the Community Campaign Community Days, yearly volunteer efforts through Community Days alone will not qualify HCA Healthcare employees as “active and engaged” volunteers.
Only organizations with 501(c)(3) status are eligible for funding.
HCA Healthcare does not contribute to:
*We encourage organizations to approach their local TriStar hospital(s) or the TriStar Health System for support for community walks and/or runs.
