Biography

Rick Scott was born in Illinois, near Bloomington. He grew up in Kansas City, Missouri where his parents worked as a truck driver and a secretary for J.C. Penny. After high school, Rick spent one year in community college before deciding to join the U.S. Navy.

He served for two and half years, much of that time spent abroad the U.S.S. Glover as a radar technician. Upon leaving the service, Scott attended the University of Missouri and went on to law school in SMU. He began his business career while in college, when he bought and revitalized two doughut shops. After law school he joined Johnson & Swanson in Dallas, Texas; at the time, the firm was the largest in the city.

While a partner at Johnson & Swanson in 1987, Scott formed HCA Acquisition Company specifically to acquire Hospital Corporation of America and secured funding conditional on completing the acquisition. The initial offer was declined by HCA and ultimately withdrawn.

The next year, he formed Columbia Hospital Corporation and successfully acquired several Dallas area hospitals. Beginning in 1992, Scott and his partners bought a hospital a year for four years, including HCA, his former target. By 1997, Columbia/HCA was the largest healthcare provider on the glove, with annual revenues exceeding $23 billion.

But by then, an investigation begun by the New York Times had caught the eye of the federal government. The federal investigation uncovered evidence of fraud and the company ultimately paid $1.7 billion in fines. Rick Scott's departure from the company was part of the arrangement to avoid criminal charges. Scott relocated to Naples, Florida and founded Richard L. Scott Investments. Starting in 1998, the firm acquired numerous targets.

Rick Scott joined the gubernatorial race and April and survived a brutal primary to pull off an upset win in the primary.

Rick Scott, his wife Ann, and their three children live in Naples, Florida. He and Ann have been married since 1972; the two met in high school.
