Fulfilling Institutional Responsibilities in Health Care

Business Ethics Quarterly 12 (4):433-450 (2002)
Abstract
In this paper we highlight the emergence of organizational ethics issues in health care as an important outcome of the changingstructure of health care delivery. We emphasize three core themes related to business ethics and health care ethics: integrity, responsibility, and choice. These themes are brought together in a discussion of the process of Mission Discernment as it has been developed and implemented within an integrated health care system. Through this discussion we highlight how processes of institutional reflection, such as Mission Discernment, can help health care organizations, as well as corporations, make critical choices in turbulent environments that further the core mission and values and fulfill institutional responsibilities to a broad range of stakeholders
