NASHVILLE, Tenn. --(Business Wire)--
HCA (NYSE:HCA), one of the nation's leading providers of healthcare
services, today announced that for a sixth consecutive year the company
has earned national recognition as one of the best workplaces for
information technology professionals. HCA, which has 165 hospitals and
115 surgery centers in 20 states, ranked No. 42 on Computerworld's
2014 "Best Places to Work in Information Technology" list of 100
"It is an honor to once again find HCA listed among the top 100 'Best
Places to Work in IT,'" said Marty Paslick, HCA's Senior Vice President
and Chief Information Officer. "This award reflects our ability to
provide an attractive workplace for HCA's 215,000 employees and
particularly for our more than 4,000 IT professionals, upon whose unique
technology expertise we rely to help transform healthcare in the
communities we serve."
Recognized several times as a top employer, HCA offers a number of
opportunities for employees to get involved and make a difference.
Employees can participate in HCA's employee giving campaign. Corporate
employees can volunteer during company time at non-profit agencies
throughout the year and during two designated HCA Community Days. New
this year, HCA's Information Technology & Services (IT&S) department
sponsored Hack for the Comunity, where IT&S and other HCA employees
collaborated with local non-profit agencies to develop technology
solutions that are helping to improve and extend the reach of their
charitable efforts. To help provide assistance closer to home, in 2005
the company established the HCA Hope Fund, an employee-run,
employee-supported 501(c)(3) charity that provides financial relief to
thousands of HCA employees every year.
In addition, as a company with a mission to care for people, HCA
promotes employee health by providing various educational programs and

immersed into the hospital environment to help them further appreciate
the effects of their work. In addition, HCA IT&S offers a diversified
