A Community Built on Care.

Tenet Healthcare is woven into the fabric of the communities we serve. Our hospitals. Our outpatient centers. Our people. We’re all part of the greater good. That’s why we’re committed to making a difference in the lives of others. We do this both by providing exceptional care, and by supporting our communities as volunteers and good corporate citizens.

Giving Back

Charitable Contributions

Tenet is proud to provide support to a wide variety of local and national not-for-profit organizations including the American Heart Association, Feeding America, American Red Cross, and many others.

Volunteerism and Fundraising

As a company of passionate caregivers, helping others is at the heart of what we do. That's why our employees volunteer thousands of hours annually and raise critical funds for the underserved, making our communities better places for all to live.

Community Outreach

Going out into the community to help others is a priority — that's why our facilities and employees regularly share their time and expertise. Each year, we provide thousands of free screenings at local health fairs, host numerous educational seminars and search for ways to better serve the people in our communities.

Tenet Announces Results for the 2019 Healthy Over Hungry® Cereal Drive

In 2019, we collected 4.5 million servings of cereal to benefit more than 100 local food banks and nonprofits across the country. The Cereal Drive works to help those struggling with hunger and to promote the importance of eating a healthy breakfast, especially for children who lose access to school-based nutrition programs during the summer months. Click here to read the full press release about our Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive.

The Cereal Drive was launched in Detroit in 2010 by Pam Taurence, a nurse at Detroit Medical Center’s Children’s Hospital of Michigan, and the DMC Professional Nurse Council. Tenet expanded the drive nationally in 2014 after Detroit Medical Center became part of the Tenet system. Since 2014, more than 19 million servings of cereal and approximately $1,165,000 have been donated to benefit thousands of children and others struggling with the effects of hunger. 

We are so proud of our teams across the Tenet enterprise for their efforts to fight hunger in our communities and to promote the importance of eating a healthy breakfast. 

Thank you for joining us to make a difference in the lives of others!

Caring for Uninsured Patients

Every patient deserves to be treated fairly and with respect, regardless of their ability to pay. This is why we were the first major hospital network to offer innovative solutions to uninsured and underinsured patients through our Compact with Uninsured Patients.
