Salem, VA (April 11, 2018) – For the ninth consecutive year, HCA – LewisGale Hospital Pulaski’s parent company – was named recently as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by The Ethisphere Institute*, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. HCA is one of only 135 companies in 23 countries and 57 industries to earn the distinction.
“We are honored and humbled to be included on this prestigious list,” says Sean Pressman, CEO of LewisGale Hospital Pulaski. “Our ethical culture and conduct – from the local level here at Pulaski all the way up to HCA’s global headquarters in Nashville – are reflected in the work of every HCA employee and their shared commitment to our core values of compassionate patient care, fairness, and integrity in everything we do.”
Since 2007, Ethisphere has honored those companies who recognize their critical role to influence and drive positive change in the business community and societies around the world, and work to maximize their impact wherever possible.
“Over the last 12 years, we have repeatedly seen that those companies who focus on transparency and authenticity are rewarded with the trust of their employees, their customers and their investors,” explained Ethisphere CEO Timothy Erblich. “While negative headlines might grab attention, the companies who support the rule of law and operate with decency and fair play around the globe will always succeed in the long term. Congratulations to all of the 2018 honorees.”
