Background: HCA Holdings (HCA), the parent company of the Hospital Corp. of America, is a fairly new addition to the top 10 list.

HCA describes itself as the nation's leading provider of healthcare services. Approximately 4% to 5% of all inpatient care delivered in the country today is provided by HCA facilities, the company says.
