One of HCA Healthcare’s top executives last week took home more than $5.4 million after exercising 71,000 stock options and selling the same number of shares.

Jonathan Perlin, HCA’s chief medical officer and president of clinical services, handled the transactions a week ago Thursday via a trading plan. He paid between $5.78 and $13.53 to exercise his options — which came in three batches and had been set to expire in November — and sold 71,063 shares for $86 apiece.

Perlin still owns about $1.2 million worth of HCA shares (Ticker: HCA), which have risen 18 percent year to date.
