Business Strategy and Outlook

| Julie Utterback |

HCA operates the largest network of hospitals in the United States, focusing on attractive geographic locations where it has the potential for leading and increasing market share. While it has locations in nearly 20 states and headquarters in Nashville, its facilities are particularly concentrated in Texas and Florida, which represent over half of its bed count. In those states, urban areas of focus include Dallas, Austin, Tampa, and Miami, and those geographic areas provide a good sense of the positive demographic factors that the firm aims to benefit from across the country.
