COVID-19 Relief Information

When a crisis hits, HCA Healthcare cares for our patients, our communities and our colleagues.  The HCA Healthcare Hope Fund is one source of support we show one another when our colleagues face unexpected hardships.

 

With the Hope Fund grants program we are able to assist those who have a demonstrated financial need related to:

  • Personal illness or illness of a dependent family member

  • Near-homeless and homeless events due to an unexpected event including past due rent/mortgage

  • Colleagues who are unable to afford basic necessities due to loss of income

 

Special Childcare Assistance. For colleagues who continue to work while incurring additional childcare expenses related to school closures, assistance is available under the following criteria:

  • Documented household income of less than 200% federal poverty level

  • Can only apply one-time for relief assistance related to this national emergency

  • Applicant must provide documentation of childcare costs
