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, Office of the CEO
Kevin Lofton, Office of the CEO
