Hospital Corporation of America

In February 1994, Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) merged with Columbia now known as Columbia/HCA. Columbia/HCA owns and operates over 330 hospitals and other healthcare facilities with approximately 60,000 licensed beds in 36 states, England and Switzerland. Columbia/HCA is building comprehensive networks of healthcare services in local markets, integrating various services to deliver patient care with maximum efficiency. The strategy includes streamlining operations, sharing technology equipment and personnel where appropriate and using economies of scale when contracting for medical supplies and administrative services.

Hippocrates   Hospital Corporation of America,
Nashville, Tennessee, USA,
Vignette of Hippocrates and a woman flanking a shield with a Caduceus (Hermes staff, having 2 snakes around a staff). Surprisingly it is not the Aesculapius sign, used by doctors, which has only one snake around a staff. On the other hand the 2 snakes of the caduceus are associated with healing powers as well, see text about the CADUCEUS (in Dutch) or the web page on Mythology on stocks. On the other hand, HCA means big business as well, see a text page in English on this company.
