Why you want to work there

IT professionals who work at this Nashville-based provider of healthcare services say their work gives them a feeling of accomplishment, as reinforced by the HCA mantra: "Healthcare Inspired." IT employees stay connected to the greater cause via the IT Healthcare Connection (ITHC) program, where techies are immersed in the hospital environment so they can see firsthand the powerful effect of their work. Technologists have a chance to share their IT expertise within HCA and throughout the community, and they're encouraged to take advantage of ongoing educational opportunities. HCA has formal programs to celebrate IT staffers' contributions, and to give employees a chance to recognize their peers' efforts.
