|The Ethisphere Institute named Cleveland Clinic a World’s Most Ethical Company this week for the fourth time in the past six years — one of only eight healthcare organizations to make the list. The honor recognizes organizations that “raise the bar on ethical leadership and corporate behavior.”
Cleveland Clinic innovations throughout recent years have helped us earn this distinction. Innovations include managing potential conflicts of interest, providing transparency on the industry relationships of our physicians and researchers, publicly reporting clinical outcomes, offering free health and wellness programs to caregivers and their dependents, and promoting environmentally friendly building and sustainability programs.
Cleveland Clinic was also the first healthcare provider in the United States — and the second in the world — to sign the United Nations Global Compact.
Our first Ethisphere ranking was in 2009. View all 2014 World's Most Ethical Companies.
