Compliance

St. Mary Medical Center is committed to the mission and values on which our organization is founded. Our Corporate Compliance Program has the primary responsibility to foster a cooperative work environment based on integrity and high ethical and moral standards in promoting full compliance with laws, regulations and policies.   The Corporate Compliance Program is an element of our organizations continuing effort to improve quality and performance.

 The Compliance Hot line number is 800-254-0458

The compliance hotline gives colleagues and community members an opportunity to confidentially report concerns relating to known or suspected violations of law or regulations. The compliance hotline is designed to supplement rather than replace existing channels of communication and administrative procedures.

If you have a concern about violations of any laws or regulations you should first speak with the immediate supervisor or next level of management whenever possible. 


Features of the Compliance Hotline:

  • Hotline is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week
  • The calls are staffed by personnel, from an independent service, familiar with the operations of a healthcare provider and compliance issues.
  • Once the information is received the hotline than notifies the compliance officer of the suspected violation
  • The compliance officer evaluates the information and conducts an appropriate investigation
  • Follow up is a priority. The hotline system is structured to allow a caller to check back for an update on the organization’s response to the concern or provide additional information.
