Premier Inc, Vizient Inc, and HealthTrust (HCA) were all named a 2017 World’s Most Ethical Company by the Ethisphere Institute, which has been recognizing the leading practices of organizations across industries and around the globe for more than a decade.
“The first core principle of HGPII requires high ethical values at each member company. We are pleased and proud that three HGPII member companies are being recognized by a global and annual assessment that values leaders in ethical practices,” said Phil English, HGPII National Coordinator. “HGPII was created to establish a process for the industry to monitor and continually improve its ethical and business practices through significant transparency and to sustain a high level of trust with the public.”
