Steady advice in the midst of constant change.
Compliance and ethics program
Our compliance program and policies contain the principles, rules, and ethical standards to be followed by all employees and other individuals who work with Surgery Partners. Compliance with applicable law is one of our highest priorities. Our Chief Compliance Officer oversees day-to-day compliance of our compliance program. In turn, our Audit and Compliance Committee of the Board of Directors provide Board oversight of the Compliance Program ensuring the highest ethical standards are met and maintained.
We expect the business of Surgery Partners to be conducted ethically and competently by our officers and employees. Patient care decisions are based on clinical concerns, not business economics. Our facilities reflect collaboration between those who are part of Surgery Partners and those who have been credentialed and privileged to practice in our facilities. As in any collaboration, each party has important roles and responsibilities. We are committed to providing an excellent work environment for physicians and other privileged practitioners who practice in our facilities.
We provide varied healthcare services in many states. These services are provided pursuant to appropriate federal, state, and local laws and regulations, and the conditions of participation for Federal healthcare programs. We have developed policies and procedures to address legal, accreditation, certification and regulatory requirements.
Surgery Partners is committed to promoting sound corporate environmental practices that will prevent and eliminate damage to the environment, enhance human and community resources, and reduce or avoid exposure to environmental liabilities.
The compliance program is intended to demonstrate in the clearest possible terms our absolute commitment to the highest standards of ethics and compliance. The elements of the program include setting standards (the Code and Policies and Procedures), communicating the standards, providing a mechanism for reporting potential exceptions, monitoring and auditing, and maintaining an organizational structure that supports the furtherance of the program.
