Abstract: Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a concept that has varied through history, with evolving definitions that aim to determine the interconnections between corporations and community. Currently, in addition to ethics, this concept of social responsibility is increasingly considered in the context of healthcare delivery suggesting a new paradigm in hospital management. Sustainability is another emerging strategic goal for healthcare systems and organizations. In this opinion paper, we briefly discuss the application of social responsibility, sustainability and ethics to healthcare organizations.

Keywords: CSR, sustainability, ethics, healthcare
