 HCA ANNOUNCES SALE OF ITS ENTIRE INVESTMENT IN THE COMMON STOCK
 OF HEALTHTRUST, INC. - THE HOSPITAL COMPANY
 NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- HCA - Hospital Corporation of America (NYSE: HCA) announced that three of its subsidiaries had today executed a block trade through Goldman, Sachs & Co. to sell all 10,258,316 shares of the common stock of HealthTrust, Inc. - The Hospital Company (NYSE: HTI) previously owned by such corporations.
 The sales price was $15-5/8 per share.
 HCA understands that Goldman, Sachs & Co. is redistributing the shares to a broad number of institutional and individual buyers.
 HCA will utilize approximately $96 million of the net after-tax cash proceeds from the sale to repay outstanding bank debt. Since 2 million of the shares were sold by two insurance subsidiaries of HCA, the proceeds from the sale of these shares will remain in these subsidiaries.
 As a result of the sale, HCA expects to record a pre-tax gain of approximately $93 million (after-tax $58 million) or $.32 per share in its fourth quarter ending Dec. 31, 1992.
