CORPORATE CULTURE: Guide for organizational ethics

“Over time, an organization may lose its soul.”  That grabs your attention.  This article presents and describes an organizational ethics guide developed by Catholic Health East to help avoid that kind of erosion of mission and values.  The guide is short and consists of the following three categories of questions that can be applied to value-based decision-making:

  1. Significant organizational decisions
  2. How does ethical review of policy work?
  3. Considering organizational culture and behavior

How several hospitals in the CHE system have formalized this process through the establishment of board-management committees is also discussed briefly.
