12 healthcare companies named 'World's Most Ethical'


A dozen healthcare organizations were listed among "The World's Most Ethical Companies" by Ethisphere Institute.

Ethisphere Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, has named its 2016 list of "The World's Most Ethical Companies." The honor recognizes companies that go beyond making statements about doing business "ethically" and translate words into actions by promoting ethical business standards internally and exceeding legal compliance minimums through best practices.

The complete list includes 131 honorees from 21 countries and five continents across 45 industries. Eleven of the healthcare companies that made the list this year are from the U.S and one is from Canada.

  • Premier — (Charlotte, N.C.) 
  • BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina (Durham, N.C.)
  • CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield — (Baltimore and Washington, D.C.)
  • Health Care Service Corporation — (Chicago)
  • Henry Schein — (Melville, N.Y.)
  • Covenant Health (Edmonton, Alberta in Canada)
  • Baptist Health South Florida — Miami
  • Cleveland Clinic
  • Hospital Corporation of America (Nashville, Tenn.)
  • Northwell Health — (Great Neck, N.Y.)
  • Sharp Healthcare — (San Diego)
  • University Hospitals — Cleveland
  • Vizient — Irving, Texas

To comprise Ethisphere's list of the "World's Most Ethical Companies," the institute uses a proprietary rating system called the corporate Ethics Quotient. The framework of the EQ is comprised of a series of multiple-choice questions that represent a company's ethical performance in an objective, consistent and standardized way.
