Personnel note: Nicole Hagerty to lobby for HCA

“I am very grateful to President Galvano allowing us to steal her away from his team.”

Nicole Hagerty, a well-known Republican fundraiser, has joined HCA as Government Affairs Director in Georgia and South Carolina.

Haggerty’s hiring is one of the first big moves of Bryan Anderson following his recent promotion to Corporate VP of Government Relations at HCA.

Hagerty will represent HCA and lead more than a dozen lobbyists on behalf of its 14 hospitals in South Carolina and Georgia, while Ryan Anderson (no relation to Bryan) continues to oversee efforts in Florida.

Bryan Anderson, until recently a mainstay in Tallahassee, spoke highly of Nicole’s expertise.

“We are thrilled to have somebody of Nicole’s caliber join HCA’s Government Relations team. Her work ethic and reputation are well known in Florida and her skill set and personality are perfectly suited to lead our advocacy efforts in Georgia and South Carolina.”

Hagerty leaves her position as finance director at the Florida Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee under Senate President Bill Galvano, an effort that saw Republicans easily maintain their majority.

Hagerty began with FRSCC under Senate President Don Gaetz and continued as Deputy Finance Director under Senate President Andy Gardiner. She was promoted to finance director in late 2017.

Prior to FRSCC, Haggerty worked for Galvano’s Innovate Florida political committee.

“Nicole will be based in Tallahassee and when she is not in her other states, she will work closely with our Florida lobby team to advance our legislative agenda there,” Bryan Anderson said. “I am very grateful to President Galvano allowing us to steal her away from his team.”

Bryan Anderson, a long-time HCA executive and native Floridian, was been elevated to the role of Corporate Vice President of Government Relations late last year. The promotion saw him relocate from Tallahassee to Nashville, where HCA is headquartered.
