Largest HCA physician groups in the U.S.
What are physician groups?
A physician group is a group of one or more physicians who are operating together to provide patient care. Physician groups with one physician who owns and manages their own office are classified as a private practice. Groups with two or more physicians providing care within the same facility are classified as a group practice.
Group practices are often affiliated with a larger health system. Using the Definitive Healthcare PhysicianGroupView product, we have listed the largest physician groups in the U.S. that belong to the HCA Healthcare network (Definitive ID: 4710), the largest health system in the U.S. by number of member hospitals and the top IDN by net patient revenue. The groups are ranked by the number of affiliated physicians. Definitive Healthcare tracks the number of physicians affiliated with physician groups based on data from Physician Compare and Definitive Healthcare proprietary research (updated weekly).

The third top HCA physician group by number of affiliated physicians is HCA Florida Physicians, with 1,184. This group has 47 practice locations along the east and west coasts of Florida, and likely shares many of the same physicians as HCA Florida Healthcare Physicians, as providers may be affiliated with more than one physician group in the practice area.
Florida and North Carolina rank in the top five U.S. states with the highest number of HCA hospitals. With higher numbers of HCA hospitals, it is no surprise that these areas also have physician groups with higher numbers of affiliated providers.
