A search is currently underway for Chuck Hall's successor.

Nashville, Tennessee-based HCA Healthcare announced that a longtime senior executive for the organization will retire from his leadership position.

Chuck Hall announced he will retire from his position as HCA Healthcare's national group president at the end of the year. This will bring his 36-year tenure with the for-profit healthcare facilities operator to an end.

Currently, a search for Hall's successor is underway.

"Chuck's career and expertise as an operator are unmatched, and his influence on our company extends well beyond hospital operations," CEO of HCA Healthcare, Sam Hazen, said in a statement. "His leadership during many natural disasters, as well as his focus on better care processes and technology, helped ensure the safety and care of our colleagues and patients. We wish him all the best in retirement."

As group president, Hall is responsible for the operations of 96 HCA Healthcare hospitals across 13 states, a role he has held during the last decade.

Under his leadership as group president, the organization made investments of approximately $10 billion in hospitals and other sites of care across Florida, which established HCA Florida Healthcare as the largest health system in the Sunshine State.

Originally, Hall joined HCA Healthcare in 1987, where he served as COO of Sam Houston Memorial Hospital in Houston, Texas. He then served as CEO of two HCA Healthcare hospitals, and president of multiple HCA Healthcare divisions including North Florida, East Florida, South Florida, and Southwest Florida.
