The parent of Wesley Medical Center said Thursday that its revenue and net income increased in the final quarter of 2010 and for the year.
Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Holdings, which is in the process of purchasing Wichita's Galichia Heart Hospital, said fourth quarter revenue increased 1.7 percent from the same quarter a year ago to $7.7 billion.
Net income increased by nearly 31 percent to nearly $7.2 billion.
For the year, revenue was $30.6 billion compared with $30 billion for 2009. Net income was $1.2 billion for the year, up 14.5 percent from $1 billion in 2009.
"We had very solid operating results last year, despite a challenging economy," Richard Bracken, HCA chairman and CEO, said in a news release.
Also Thursday, George Bussey was named chief medical officer for HealthONE in Denver and HCA's Continental Division, which includes Wesley.
He will lead efforts to support consistent high-quality clinical care across HealthONE hospitals, as well as HCA hospitals in Oklahoma City; Edmond, Okla.; and Wichita.
