HCA president of operations joins ranks of insiders selling

Sam Hazen, president of operations at HCA Holdings, on Monday joined a number of his executive peers in cashing in on the gains posted of late by the hospital giant's shares (Ticker: HCA). The veteran HCA officer — he's been with the company since 1994 — exercised more than 19,000 stock options and then sold the resulting shares. His profit on the transactions topped $1.2 million, lifting to almost $23 million the gains banked by HCA execs over the past week. We're thinking there's more to come on this front.
