Tenet Executive Chairman and CEO Ronald Rittenmeyer said, "We are partially offsetting the volume declines with tighter cost controls, but the one-time impacts are difficult to recover in a short period of time. We are challenging ourselves to improve accountability, agility and decision making, changing how we manage our business day-to-day and reiterating our focus on quality and service."
