Northwell Health has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for 2023 by Ethisphere, one of six health systems in the nation to be recognized and the only one from New York State. It’s the eighth time on the list for Northwell, joining 135 other honorees from 19 countries and 46 industries.
Ethisphere, which announced the list today, is a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. Northwell continues to earn recognition for its culture, practices and inclusive and compassionate care in the face of a three-year pandemic while serving some of the most diverse communities on the planet.
“Acting ethically is a core tenant at Northwell Health, so it’s a real validation of our culture to be recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies,” said Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell. “Our team members buy into Northwell’s mission of compassionate and inclusive care. And when you do right by patients, that moral imperative powers everything else.”
The World’s Most Ethical Companies assessment process includes more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives to support a strong value chain. Grounded in Ethisphere’s proprietary Ethics Quotient®, the process serves as an operating framework to capture and codify the leading practices of organizations across industries and around the globe.
“Ethisphere highlights what good corporate character and ethical business practices look like. To see Northwell listed among the best companies worldwide is a tremendous honor,” said Greg Radinsky, senior vice president and Northwell’s chief corporate compliance officer. “Northwell is committed to integrity, innovation and excellence and the health system succeeds through a team approach.”
