Corprate Bias Ratings

Risk Level:

Rating - Caution
Medium Risk

AdventHealth has not publicly terminated business relationships based on views or beliefs. However, the company does not publish a nondiscrimination policy and created a campaign called "White Coats for Black Lives," which involved doctors kneeling in a row in medical coats at the office. AdventHealth also hosts unconscious bias seminars at some branches but does not appear to discriminate against religious organizations in its charitable giving. The company signed the Orlando Economic Partnership's DEI pledge, endorsing DEI as a strategic imperative in its business practices. However, the company has not lobbied for ideological purposes. For these reasons AdventHealth receives a Medium Risk rating.
