Our Core Values

Sonic’s Core Values were created by our staff more than 20 years ago, and act as guiding principles for how we conduct ourselves as an organisation.

Our Core Values set the standard for the collegiate and supportive way in which we behave towards one another, as well as the professionalism with which we conduct ourselves in our day-to-day duties. Individually, our Core Values articulate our commitment to medical excellence. Collectively, they empower our people to deliver exceptional medical services to doctors and patients. 

Since their inception, Sonic’s Core Values have been embraced by Sonic Healthcare staff around the world as a unifying code of conduct. 


Commit to service excellence

To willingly serve all those with whom we deal, with unsurpassed excellence. 


Treat each other with respect and honesty

To grow a workplace where trust, team spirit and equity are an integral part of everything we do. 


Demonstrate responsibility and accountability

To set an example, to take ownership of each situation to the best of our ability and to seek help when needed. 


Be enthusiastic about continuous improvement

To never be complacent, to recognise limitations and opportunities for ourselves and processes and to learn through these. 


Maintain confidentiality

To keep all information pertaining to patients, as well as professional and commercial issues, in strict confidence.
