HCA Healthcare has unique scale benefits and broader capabilities that are difficult, if not impossible, to match. Understanding the unique, special needs of our patients, particularly those in remote and rural areas, we look forward to the possibility of expanding access and accelerating improvements while gaining efficiencies.
A key component of this agreement, should it move forward, is the creation of a very substantial foundation. While the final details still need to be worked out, its assets will be focused on the people who live in our communities. With the potential of tens of millions of dollars or more available every year to improve the health of the residents of western North Carolina and beyond, the possibilities of this new foundation are nothing short of transformational. That’s great news for our patients and communities!
