Doing What’s Right. The First Time. Every Time.

We Are Committed to Standing Up for Our Values and Promoting a Culture of Integrity.

Tenet Healthcare’s ethics and compliance program supports everyone who acts on behalf of Tenet in making decisions that align with our mission and values. The program also helps ensure that everyone in the company understands and complies with all related laws and policies as outlined in our Standards of Conduct. Without exception, these standards apply to every colleague, active staff physician, hospital governing board member and our corporate board of directors.

Our ethics program is managed by our Ethics and Compliance Department in accordance with Tenet's Quality, Compliance and Ethics Program Charter. This charter requires that all colleagues and many of our contractors follow our Standards of Conduct, participate in annual and specialized training, address issues of concern with our compliance leaders and contact the Ethics Action Line (EAL) if issues are not resolved.

See It. Say It. Fix It.
