As with many other hospital companies, Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare faced considerable financial pressure related to the pandemic, suspending its quarterly dividend last spring. Admissions to its hospitals dropped 4.7% for the year owing to fewer procedures and less emergency-room traffic. COVID-19 cases in 2020 made up about 8% of its hospitals’ overall admissions. But HCA finished the year strong: It brought in annual revenue of $51.5 billion, a hair above the previous year’s tally, as revenue per hospitalized patient increased 10.5%. Net income attributable to the company rose 7.1% to nearly $3.8 billion, compared with $3.5 billion in 2019.
