Frist's votes benefit HCA

Todd Pack of The Tennessean examined the voting record of Sen. Bill Frist (R) over the past 11 years, finding the senator has a pattern of supporting bills friendly to HCA Inc., the Nashville-based hospital company that is the foundation of the Frist family's wealth, and to hospitals in general. Frist has faced criticism in recent months for the sale of his HCA stock just before the stock dipped 9 percent. The paper points out, "His votes typically have followed the Republican Party line." Among the measures Frist has supported that could benefit HCA: limiting jury awards, giving hospitals more money for treating seniors and curbing development of physician-owned specialty hospitals that compete with HCA.
