  • Any experience with HCA critical care jobs?

    Hi everyone-I was wondering if anyone out there has any experience with HCA as an employer, particularly with critical care jobs. I have only done a brief search so far but not much info out there and apparently they are a large company. I am wondering if their model/practice is similar to that of EM CMGs. Any info or opinions would be appreciated publicly or privately! Thanks in advance!

    No personal experience, but one of my partners worked for HCA for a few years doing pulm/CC. To say that he had a negative experience with them would be an understatement. In my discussions with him, the error he made was in assuming that they saw him as a valuable human being worthy of respect rather than an advanced widgit-maker who could fill a position that needed filling. I imagine this attitude is not unique to HCA, but rather a symptom of corporate medicine in general. My advice is that if you end up pursuing a job in corporate medicine, assume they are out to screw you over at every turn and never agree to do anything that isn't specified in the contract.

      No personal experience either, but something something tells me working for the largest for profit hospital operator with a $32B market cap wouldn't give you much leverage...

        No knowledge of critical care specifically but hca is The absolute worst of the worst (at least in my specialty in our regional market)
