HCA gifts $500K to American Red Cross for Hurricane Florence relief

Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare has donated $500,000 to the American Red Cross to help victims of Hurricane Florence.

The for-profit hospital operator has five hospital campuses in South Carolina: Colleton Medical Center in Walterboro; Grand Strand Medical Center in Myrtle Beach; Moncks Corner Medical Center; Summerville Medical Center; and Trident Medical Center in Charleston. It also has nearly 40 other care sites across the state.

"As a healthcare provider, caring for people in their time of need is deeply embedded in HCA Healthcare's culture," said Milton Johnson, chairman and CEO of HCA Healthcare. "We have a long history of serving communities throughout South Carolina, and we are pleased to support Hurricane Florence relief efforts by the Red Cross."

HCA Healthcare also donated $1 million to the American Red Cross to help people affected by Hurricane Harvey and after that storm agreed to match employee donations to the HCA Hope Fund, an employee assistance charity, up to $1 million. The HCA Hope Fund is currently providing grants to HCA Healthcare employees affected by Hurricane Florence.
