Corporate responsibility

CommonSpirit Health is a values-driven health care organization. Our commitment to community begins with living our values and adhering to exceptional standards of conduct. It is the personal responsibility of every person associated with our ministry to behave ethically and appropriately.

“At CommonSpirit Health, we believe that corporate responsibility begins with personal responsibility and integrity on the part of everyone who works for and with our organizations.”

Michelle Cooper, Executive Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer


Our values in action

Delivering quality health care services is complex and there are many laws and regulations governing how we operate.  CommonSpirit’s policies, procedures and ongoing education help to ensure that our behaviors and business transactions are ethical and appropriate at all times.

“Since the early days when our sponsoring congregations first began their journey to care for those who were poor and vulnerable, we have carried on their tradition of living our values. Maintaining a strong ethical culture is an obligation each one of us shares.”

Lloyd Dean, Chief Executive Officer
