Message from Our CEO

Welcome to SCHS’s Ethics Reporting Web Site

St. Charles Health System is committed to our mission to "improve the health of those we serve in a spirit of love and compassion." As a growing, dynamic organization of dedicated people who strive to do the right thing, we consistently seek to advance our high standards of conduct in the provision of health care in our community. St. Charles Health System’s Code of Ethics provides the organization with a clear perspective and understanding of expected ethical behavior.

We have selected EthicsPoint (an outside vendor used by many corporations) to provide a simple method to report anonymously, and confidentially, issues and concerns associated with potential, unethical or illegal activities at St. Charles Health System. An EthicsPoint report may be filed on the website or by calling 1-888-373-8881. If you file a report, you will remain anonymous, and your report will remain confidential unless you choose otherwise. St. Charles Health System policy and federal law prohibits retaliation against any individual who reports a valid concern.

The success and integrity of our organization depends upon providing our services in an ethical manner. We appreciate your support and cooperation in helping us to continue to provide the excellent care that we are known for in our region by reporting any ethical concerns that you may have. Please know that by doing so, you are doing the right thing for the protection of patients, caregivers and our community.

Sincerely,
Joseph Sluka, MBA
President and CEO
St. Charles Health System
