Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Holdings board of directors voted last week to rework the company’s name, CEO Milton Johnson said on an earnings call Tuesday.

The company’s new name will be HCA Healthcare, effective May 8.

Regarding the change, Mr. Johnson said, “Our new name is more reflective of our mission and the broad spectrum of care we provide to our communities and the dedication of our caregivers to our patients in our vast network of inpatient and outpatient facilities across our 42 U.S. markets and the U.K.”

The company will continue to trade under the ticker symbol HCA after the change takes effect.

HCA has reworked its name several times over the years. Prior to HCA Holdings, the company’s names included HCA Inc., Hospital Corporation of America and Columbia/HCA Healthcare.
