HCA Reports Fourth Quarter 2011 Results

Announces Special Dividend of $2.00 per Share

Provides 2012 Guidance

Nashville, Tenn., February 6, 2012

– HCA Holdings, Inc. today announced financial and operating results for the year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011. HCA also today announced that its Board of Directors approved a special cash dividend of $2.00 per share to be paid to shareholders of record as of February 16, 2012 with a payment date of February 29, 2012.

Key fourth quarter metrics (all percentage changes compare 4Q 2011 to 4Q 2010 unless noted):



Revenues increased 8.5 percent to $7.769 billion



Net income attributable to HCA Holdings, Inc. totaled $1.935 billion, or $4.25 per diluted share, which includes a pretax gain on the acquisition of a controlling interest in an equity investment (HealthONE) of $1.522 billion, or $3.13 per diluted share, and pretax gains on sales of facilities of $145 million, or $0.18 per diluted share



Adjusted EBITDA increased 13.2 percent to $1.639 billion



Cash flow from operations increased to $1.387 billion



Same facility equivalent admissions increased 3.2 percent while same facility admissions increased 2.5 percent



Same facility revenue per equivalent admission declined 1.0 percent

“The Company had a strong performance in the quarter and for 2011, showing substantial growth in a number of key areas,” said Richard M. Bracken, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We saw continued and favorable growth in patient volumes, advancement in our clinical quality agenda, the acquisition of complementary assets in key markets and efficient operation of our facilities. We believe we are well positioned as we enter 2012.”

Fourth quarter 2011 revenues increased to $7.769 billion compared to $7.161 billion in the prior year’s fourth quarter. Revenue growth was primarily driven by increased patient utilization at the Company’s facilities and the financial consolidation (effective November 1, 2011) of the previously announced acquisition of the remaining 40 percent ownership of our HealthONE joint venture. On a consolidated basis, equivalent admissions increased 8.2 percent while admissions increased 7.1 percent compared to the prior year period.
