HCA today announced it will give $500,000 to the Nashville Area Red Cross for flood relief in Middle Tennessee.

“We are proud to make this donation,” said Richard M. Bracken, HCA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “This disaster has affected everyone in our Middle Tennessee community, and many of our colleagues suffered their own personal losses. Through multiple efforts, they maintained care to our patients and reached out to help friends, neighbors and total strangers.”

In addition to this cash donation, HCA is providing space for a statewide Red Cross command center housed at its Skyline Madison Campus in Madison, Tenn. The command center is staffed by approximately 80 Red Cross volunteers from across the country, and some 700 volunteers are expected to cycle through the center over the course of its effort.

The company also is giving its corporate employees a paid volunteer day to assist in local recovery efforts.
