Dear Acadian Medical Center (AMC)
The true foundation of Acadian Medical Center (AMC) has always been its commitment to provide quality care to our patients. As part of this, we strive to ensure an ethical and compassionate approach to healthcare delivery and management. We must demonstrate consistently that we act with absolute integrity in the way we do our work and the way we live our lives.
This Code of Conduct provides guidance to ensure that our work is performed in an ethical and legal manner. It emphasizes the shared common values that guide our actions. It contains resources to help resolve any questions about appropriate conduct in the work place. Please review it thoroughly. Your adherence to its spirit, as well as its specific provisions, is critical to our future.
If you have questions regarding this Code or encounter any situation that you believe violates provisions of this Code, you should immediately consult your supervisor, another member of management, or your Compliance Officer. You may also call the Compliance Hotline at 844- 477-0008. You have our personal assurance there will be no retribution for asking questions or raising concerns about the Code or for reporting possible improper conduct.
We are committed to those ideals reflected in our Mission and Values Statement and in this Code of Conduct. We are equally committed to assuring that our actions consistently reflect our words. In this spirit, we want this organization to be a family of men and women of shared values, and we expect all of our employees' actions to reflect the high standards set forth in this Code of Conduct.
No code of conduct can substitute for our own internal sense of fairness, honesty, and integrity. Thus, in your daily life and work, if you encounter a situation or are considering a course of action which may be technically within the guidelines of the Code of Conduct, but you are worried that the contemplated action simply "does not feel right," please discuss the situation with any of the resources listed above. In closing, we trust you as a valuable member of our healthcare team. We ask you to assist us and all employees in this organization in supporting the values and principles that are critical to achieving our mission.
