HCA said it planned to pay the dividend on or before Dec. 31. HCA paid a $2.50 dividend per share in November, funding that in part with a $2 billion offering.

Two private-equity investment companies, Bain Capital and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., collectively hold about 40% of the company, or about 89.5 million and 87.5 million shares, respectively, as of June 30.
