NASHVILLE, Tenn. – HCA Healthcare, Inc. (and its divisions Tennessee Healthcare Management, Inc. and GME Overhead), a for-profit corporation headquartered in Nashville, providing graduate medical education in over 2,300 health care facilities, violated federal law by refusing to promote an employee because of his age, race and national origin, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit filed today. HCA Healthcare also violated the law when it fired him in retaliation for complaining internally to his employer about the discrimination, the EEOC said.
