We are frontline workers from California, Florida, Kansas, Missouri, Nevada and Texas fighting for safer staffing and quality patient care at HCA hospitals.
WHY WE’RE TAKING ACTION
HCA workers earn as little as $12.50 an hour risking their lives on the frontline while HCA executives at the top rake in millions. In 2020, HCA’s CEO Sam Hazen earned $30 million – 556 times more than the average HCA worker
Possible Medicare Fraud
HCA may have netted
$1.8 billion in fraudulent Medicare payments in just five years by over admitting Medicare patients into their emergency rooms for unnecessary medical care
Questionable Hospice Transfers
HCA may be pressuring doctors to transfer patients into hospice prematurely to boost profits and executive compensation. Transfers to hospice care from HCA’s facilities jumped more than 50% between 2017 and 2021.
