Ethics and Compliance

Ethics & Compliance Program

Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center’s goal of being the premier healthcare provider of choice for Russellville and surrounding areas is our top priority. The relationships we have with our patients, their families, physicians, and each other as fellow employees of the hospital is of paramount importance. To retain and nurture those relationships long-term, our actions, individually and collectively, must be based on solid ethical principles. Strict adherence to our Code of Conduct leaves positive long-lasting impressions with our constituency, builds trust, and helps us retain and grow our healthcare capabilities.

Our Code of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct is updated each year and is required reading for our employees. Our entire Workforce is expected to abide by our Ethics & Compliance policies. The Workforce is defined under HIPAA regulations as including not only employees, but also medical staff members, volunteers, trainees, contracted personnel, business associates and other persons who perform work for the hospital, whether or not they are paid by the covered entity.
