Our Commitment to Ethics
White Oak Women’s Center is committed to upholding the highest standard of ethics in all patient care interactions.
Is your medical provider treating you ethically? Three primary ethical principles should govern your medical provider’s communication with you:
- Patient First (Beneficence) – Ethical practitioners will put your physical, psychological, and spiritual needs before their own and will disclose any conflict of interest that may prevent them from doing so.
- Do No Harm (Non-Malfeasance)– Ethical practitioners keep your private information completely confidential and help you prevent future health problems by exploring the least-risky treatments first.
- Empowerment (Autonomy) – Ethical practitioners respect your dignity and power to choose by providing all the information you need to make an informed decision about your healthcare.
White Oak Women’s Center has a patient care team committed to upholding these three ethical principles at all times. We help turn fear into confidence by ensuring that you are respected, cared for, and well informed.
Refer to our Patient Bill of Rights to see how you can expect to be treated whenever you receive services at White Oak Women’s Center.
