    HCA Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE:HCA), one of the nation’s leading healthcare providers, today announced that it has been named as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion” by the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the nation’s largest disability rights organization, and Disability: IN, the global business disability inclusion network to collectively advance the inclusion of people with disabilities. HCA Healthcare earned a top score of 100 on the Disability Equality Index (DEI) for its commitment to workplace inclusion.

    “We are proud to be recognized as a ‘Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion’ for the second year in a row,” said Sherri Neal, chief diversity officer of HCA Healthcare. “This recognition acknowledges our unwavering dedication to ensuring that individuals with disabilities are treated with dignity and respect and are provided opportunities to fully participate in the workplace.”

    In the United States, up to 1 in 4 people have a disability. Launched in 2015 by the AAPD and Disability:IN, the DEI provides companies with benchmarking scores ranging from 0-100 to help them build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions that they can take to achieve disability inclusion and equality. This year, 485 corporations utilized the DEI, 294 of which earned a top score of 100.

    "These top-scoring companies understand deeply that people with disabilities represent a tremendous source of talent and innovation for their workforce and market share for their brands, and they are trailblazers in our journey towards full disability inclusion in business," said Maria Town, president and chief executive officer of AAPD.

    The 2023 Disability Equality Index measured organizations for their disability inclusion efforts in the following categories:

    • Culture and leadership: Representation of disability in leadership roles and efforts to foster an inclusive workplace culture.
    • Enterprise-wide access: Accessibility of physical spaces, technologies and digital platforms.
    • Employment practices: Recruitment, hiring and retention practices, including accommodations, training and development opportunities and resource groups for people with disabilities.
    • Community engagement: Efforts to engage with and support the disability community through philanthropy, partnerships and advocacy initiatives.
    • Supplier diversity: Including disability-owned businesses in supply chain and procurement practices.

    “Businesses have the power to drive the global advancement of disability inclusion, and we’re thrilled to see more companies than ever leverage the Disability Equality Index to measure their progress. We recognize these top-scoring companies as a ‘Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion’ for their passion and efforts to lead the way in creating greater equity for people with disabilities in the workplace, marketplace, and supply chain,” said Jill Houghton, president and chief executive officer of Disability:IN.
