Rick grew up in Missouri, to begin with. His father worked as a truck driver, and his mother as a shop saleswoman. After graduating from high school, he spent two and a half years in the United States Navy, the majority of which he spent as a radar operator on the USS Glover. Then, with financial aid, he enrolled in the University of Missouri, earning a BA in Management from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and later a Master’s degree in Law from Southern Methodist University, using the privileges for former military members.

In terms of his business career, he opened two shops in Kansas City while still a student at the university. After graduating, Scott went to work for the Dallas law firm Johnson & Swanson. He was a co-founder of Columbia Hospital Corporation in 1987; in 1989, the firm combined with Hospital Corporation of America to form Columbia / HCA, the largest for-profit health care company in the United States. When a scandal involving the company’s business practices and accounting methods erupted in 1997, he was compelled to resign from the board of directors. The corporation recently acknowledged to committing fourteen felonies and agreed to pay the US government more than $1.7 billion.

He was also a co-owner of the Texas Rangers baseball franchise for a period, with future President George W. Bush as his business partner.

In terms of his political career, his first significant endeavor was the Conservatives for Patients’ Rights organization, which opposed President Barack Obama’s health-care reform plans; Scott contributed $5 million of his personal wealth to help fund the organization’s media campaign.
