We create this annual report to engage our patients, caregivers, communities and global stakeholders in our sustainability initiatives and goals, with a focus on progress we have made in the last year. Unique among top-ranked U.S. News & World Report healthcare systems, we measure our progress in accordance with the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles, UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Reporting Initiative standards, the most widely adopted global sustainability reporting framework. We look forward to continued partnership with all of our valued stakeholders to achieve our sustainability goals.
