Considerable positive value is associated with Medical Services ($39.1 B), Medical Devices ($21.8 B), and Economic Value ($13.0 B). Out of every company we have analyzed, HCA Healthcare, Inc. is in the top ten for Medical Services.

The company produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. However, there is room for improvement with respect to Breastmilk Substitutes (-$427.3 M). Medical Services and Economic Value are attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Medical Devices and Breastmilk Substitutes are largely consequences of the actions of supply chain partners.
