TeamHealth released the following statement in response to a video circulated online regarding the actions of a former employee:
“The type of disturbing and offensive behavior reflected in the video is the antithesis of what we stand for at TeamHealth. We take this situation very seriously and the physician assistant in the video, who was never an employee of Memorial Hermann, has been terminated. While a preliminary review has not found evidence to support the former physician assistant’s claim regarding the other individuals named in the video, we have engaged Davis Polk & Wardwell, a global law firm with experience investigating these types of allegations, to conduct a thorough independent investigation into the matter which is underway. The other individuals mentioned in the video are no longer providing services to TeamHealth, pending the outcome of the investigation. We will take any appropriate further action at the conclusion of the investigation. More broadly, we clearly have an opportunity to do a better job reinforcing our culture of respect as a company. The diversity of our clinical workforce in Houston reflects the diversity of the community we serve. As such, we will launch additional inclusion training across our organization that will enhance our existing workplace diversity trainings to ensure that every member of our workforce understands the importance of diversity and inclusion, and to reinforce the necessity for us to always provide a healing environment steeped in dignity and respect for all.”
