Northwell Health Named by Ethisphere As One of the World’s Most Ethical Companies

February 23, 2021

Northwell Health has been recognized as one of 2021 World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute, one of nine health systems nationwide to make the list and the only one from New York State.

Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, selected Northwell for the sixth time. New York’s largest health system and private employer was among 135 organizations spanning 22 countries and 47 industries to be named a Most Ethical company.

“We hold ourselves to the highest of standards and in spite of a pandemic that pushed the world to the breaking point our health care heroes continue to deliver compassionate quality care,” said Michael Dowling, president, and CEO of Northwell Health. “Our culture has carried us through this dark time, turning adversity into strength. That’s the sign of a truly ethical company and I’m proud of how we responded in New York’s time of need.”

When coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) began rampaging through the region beginning in March 2020, Northwell stepped to the fore with complex medical care, expanded testing, timely clinical trials, and eventually vaccinations. Northwell has treated more than 163,000 COVID-19 patients to date, including 16,000 who were hospitalized between March and Labor Day – more than any other health system in the nation.

The criteria Ethisphere used to judge the World’s Most Ethical Companies included more than 200 questions on culture, environmental and social practices, ethics and compliance activities, governance, diversity, and initiatives to support strong cultural values. The process was streamlined and the question set expanded to gauge how applicants adapted and responded to the global health pandemic, environmental, social, and governance factors, safety, equity and inclusion, and social justice.

“We are truly honored and grateful to be counted among The World’s Most Ethical Companies,” said Greg Radinsky, senior vice president and Northwell’s chief corporate compliance officer. “Congratulations to everyone at Northwell Health for earning this recognition. This is a testament to the collective work our entire organization performs in serving our patients and communities — especially in such a trying year.”
