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

Compliance matters. It’s as simple as that. Tenet’s compliance program represents a shared undertaking on the part of all employees, who are expected to take ownership of compliance and to perform all tasks with integrity.

Tenet Healthcare’s ethics and compliance program 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 compliance program is managed by our Ethics and Compliance Department, including our more than 100 compliance professionals, in accordance with Tenet's Quality, Compliance and Ethics Program Charter.

When our employees need guidance or want to report concerns, they may contact our Ethics Action Line, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at 1-800-8-ETHICS (1-800-838-4427). They may also send an email message to Ethics@tenethealth.com. Callers may remain anonymous, and those who choose to give their names will have their identities protected to the fullest extent of the law.
