Leadership Talks

Our dedicated employees are guided by five core values: quality, integrity, service, innovation and transparency. Together, we strive to fulfill our fundamental social purpose and responsibility of providing quality health care to those who need it.

Our vision for sustainability centers on this purpose and includes:

  • A commitment to our patients to continually improve the quality of medical care and patient safety we provide.
  • A commitment to our employees to provide a workplace that is safe, a culture that promotes good values, high standards of conduct and compensation that is fair.
  • A commitment to our communities to provide good value for their healthcare expenditures, to advocate for the needs of patients, to be involved in citizenship and volunteerism and to be mindful of our impact on the earth’s resources and the environment.
  • A commitment to our shareholders to create value and to operate our business according to sustainable strategies and practices.

At Tenet, we adhere to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) definition of sustainability that brings together social contributions, economic impact, and environmental work – all things that help sustain our world. For us, it’s natural, since this work fits hand-inhand with our mission of "improving the quality of life of every patient who enters our door."
