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.

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.
