Veterans Day 2020: Honoring our Veterans

Posted by HealthTrust Workforce Solutions on Nov 11, 2020 9:12:32 AM

Today is Veterans Day, which offers us a special opportunity to express our gratitude to those who served in the United States military, especially the many among us now working within the HealthTrust Workforce Solutions family. Thank you to all of the courageous individuals put their lives in harm's way to protect our country and ensure the freedoms that Americans embrace each and every day.  I would also like to thank families of veterans, because, just like our veterans, their families are just as courageous, making countless sacrifices to protect our great country and all of the rights we enjoy everyday.

As the coronavirus continues to impact our communities and we all deal with a lot of uncertainty, we remain concerned about the veterans and their families who struggle every day to make ends meet. HWS is proud to partner with the United Way of Broward County’s MISSION UNITED, which provides veteran employment services, legal assistance, education, financial services, health and housing support. I am proud that HealthTrust has been provided the opportunity to assist such a worthy cause.  If you are interested in learning more about what you can do to support veterans as they transition back to civilian life, I invite you to visit unitedway.org/mission-united to learn more about this growing program in cities across the country.

We are also proud that our parent company, HCA Healthcare,  has been recognized by Military Times as one of the country’s best employers based on the organization’s military-connected employment programs, benefits and support efforts. Since 2012, HCA Healthcare has hired more than 39,000 veterans, active-duty personnel and military spouses.

Today and every day we are grateful for our veterans and honor all who have served.
