As HCA Healthcare’s senior vice president and chief ethics and compliance officer, I am excited to announce that we have earned the World’s Most Ethical Company® honor for the seventh consecutive year.  The highly competitive selection process affirms HCA Healthcare’s consistent commitment to ethical business standards in our 168 hospitals, 116 freestanding surgery centers, and many other facilities in 20 states and the United Kingdom.

We take pride in being one of only a handful of healthcare companies recognized by the Ethisphere Institute for this distinction. This honor reflects HCA Healthcare’s corporate citizenship, accountability and our 230,000 employees’ shared commitment to model business practices through our Ethics and Compliance program.
