How would Mission Health joining HCA Healthcare benefit our community?

HCA Healthcare has a proven track-record of making meaningful investments in its communities – not just for its healthcare operations but beyond.  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 for improving the health of the residents of western North Carolina and beyond, the possibilities of this new foundation are nothing short of transformational.  In addition, HCA Healthcare will pay local and state property, sales, use and other taxes that will support our local community governments.
