Healthcare is the prevention and treatment of disease using scientific knowledge and technology. In operating a business that is part of this endeavor, nothing is more important than our regard for human life. We hold that current medical science still has but a limited ability to deal with the afflictions that impair human life and health.
There is room for improvement and innovation even with today’s most advanced treatments and technologies. Our basic principle, therefore, is that it is unacceptable to abandon hope.
