We’re all united around a common mission — to help people live happier, healthier lives.

Across our network, our employees provide compassionate, quality care to millions of patients through a wide range of services: from wellness and primary care to chronic care management, urgent care, advanced diagnostics, outpatient surgery, rehabilitation and acute hospital care.

  • Through our 6 health plans we’re providing affordable coverage options for individuals, families, retirees and employers.
  • We’re educating the next generation of healthcare leaders through our Baptist School of Health Professions.
  • We're collaborating with leading healthcare insurers to better coordinate care, reduce healthcare costs and improve the long-term health and well-being of communities through our accountable care and clinically integrated organizations.
  • Conifer Health Solutions helps hospitals, employers and health insurance companies improve the efficiency and performance of their operations and the health of the people they serve.

Our Core Values

As we seek to serve our patients, customers and communities — to provide an exceptional environment for our employees and affiliated physicians and an attractive return to our shareholders — we are guided by five core values:


Quality is at the core of everything we do and every decision we make.


We have a culture of innovation that creates new solutions for the challenges and opportunities in the healthcare system.


We have a culture of service that values teamwork and focuses on the needs of others.


We manage our business with integrity and the highest ethical standards.


We operate with transparency by sharing results and outcomes.

Our Commitment to Quality

Healthcare is changing. And at Tenet, we have a plan to lead that charge.

How? By making safety, service and industry-leading clinical outcomes the cornerstones of our mission. By seeking to provide high-quality, high-value care backed by compassionate service. By giving our caregivers the tools, technologies and resources they need to deliver the best care possible. By always doing what’s right for our patients, our employees and our communities.

Our Commitment to Quality honors the trust that our patients and communities place in our hospitals, outpatient centers, physician practices and other care facilities. It's at the core of everything we do and every decision we make.
