HCA, Hospital Corporation of America Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP) in Arlington, Texas

*People. Performance. Possibilities. * These words describe the focus of our Human Resources team… supporting the mission of HCA, one of the largest healthcare providers in the world: /“Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.”/ HCA HR has recently expanded the ways that it provides service to leaders and employees by unifying our HR team to offer new services for caregivers including our 24/7 HCA hrAnswers Center and Portal, new capabilities with our expanded Centers of Excellence, and new business impact through strategic HR Business Partner teams. There’s never been a more exciting time to join HCA HR.

Medical Center Arlington (MCA) originally opened in August of 1976 as Arlington Community Hospital in a rural part of town, MCA (a Hospital Corporation of America - HCA - affiliated facility) has developed into a 342-bed full-service hospital located in the heart of the growing South Arlington area. There are well over 1,000 full-time and part-time nurses, therapists, technicians and other healthcare personnel that make up the MCA team. They're working alongside the nearly 600 highly skilled physicians who represent a wide variety of medical specialties. Together they form a team that is focused on high-quality care delivered safely in an environment filled with compassion and service.

In many respects there is not much difference when you compare hospitals based on bricks and mortar and to some extent when comparing technologies available for diagnosis and treatment. We recognize and thrive on the fact that what sets us apart from other hospitals in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex is our culture. We define our culture.

It starts with how we treat and interact with each other. We support each other. We communicate well. And we make sure that our team has the tools and resources it needs to be able to deliver excellent patient care. We create a workplace where doctors and nurses want to be because they know they are doing meaningful work with a purpose. This matters most to our patients and their families and our community as a whole who know they can trust us to help them get better.

MCA has an opportunity for a Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP).
