Thomas Frist Jr. is a former Air Force flight surgeon and founded Hospital Corp. of America with his father in 1968. Frist is also a major shareholder of HCA Healthcare. He is seen in the picture below to the far right.

In addition, HCA Healthcare has approximately 2,000 different sites of care such as surgery centers, urgent care centers and more.
