16 healthcare organizations named among 'World's Most Ethical Companies'

More than a dozen healthcare organizations were named to Ethisphere's 2017 list of the "World's Most Ethical Companies."

Ethisphere Institute is a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. The "World's Most Ethical Companies" program recognizes companies that excel in three key areas: promoting ethical business standards and practices internally; enabling managers and employees to make good choices; and shaping future industry standards by introducing new best practices.

Selection for the list is based on Ethisphere's proprietary rating system, called the corporate Ethics Quotient. The EQ is comprised of a series of multiple choice questions that aim to capture a company's performance in an objective and standardized way. Click here for more details on the methodology.
