Dear Great Plains Regional Medical Center employees and associates,
Great Plains Regional Medical Center strives to provide the kind of health care we would want for ourselves and our families, in partnership with those we serve. Great Plains Regional Medical Center’s success in fulfilling this mission has been enhanced by a culture of conducting all aspects of our business in an ethical and legal manner. Working together, we have developed a reputation for integrity, quality services, and a high standard of business conduct. Great Plains Regional Medical Center is a leader in providing full-service health care, and it is essential that our culture is continued, valued, and exemplified by every employee and associate.
We are very proud to share with you this compliance and the code of conduct booklet. The compliance plan and the code of conduct provides a comprehensive strategy to promote consistent ethical and legal actions in all facets of our business. The Great Plains Regional Medical Center’s Board of Directors has endorsed the compliance plan and the code of conduct, and the corporate compliance officer oversees the compliance program.
We have provided employees and associates with several avenues to raise compliance-related concerns, including Great Plains Regional Medical Center’s open door policy, which encourages direct discussions with supervisors and managers. If you find that these avenues are insufficient to address compliance-related concerns, you may also call the Healthcare Values Line (1.800.273.8452). The Healthcare Values Line is confidential and has been developed to maintain the caller’s anonymity up to the limits of the law. We can assure you that there will be no retaliation or retribution against anyone for reporting problems to the Healthcare Values Line.
Please review the compliance and the code of conduct booklet and apply the standards in your work. If you have any questions, please discuss them with your supervisor or use one of the other methods outlined in the document.
We appreciate your continued efforts and dedication to maintaining Great Plains Regional Medical Center’s professional reputation and unprecedented success as we continue to grow and meet the health care needs of our area.
