In order for HSHS to carry out its health ministry consistent with its Mission, Vision, Values and Philosophy, an effective System-wide System Responsibility Program (SRP) will be maintained. As a colleague of HSHS you have an obligation to report suspected or known violations of law, policies or your Codes of Conduct. In order to maintain our religious and ethical principles and standards Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) has established the HSHS Values Line. The HSHS Values Line is a telephone and web-based reporting system that provides a way to anonymously report instances of suspected fraud, waste and abuse.

HSHS has an "open door policy" that permits colleagues, independent contractors and agents to present to management personnel any suspected violation of any applicable federal, state, and local laws as well as our Code of Conduct. Any Colleague is encouraged and may feel free to directly contact their Manager, Director, Division Responsibility Officer or the System Responsibility Officer regarding questions relating to System Responsibility. We would like you to resolve concerns through established channels whenever possible, but we recognize that this is not always an option. If you do not feel comfortable talking to one of these colleagues please call our Values Line at 866-435-5777 or make your report via this website. The HSHS Values Line is operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Reports submitted through the HSHS Values Line will be forwarded to the appropriate person for prompt action and the reporter can remain anonymous to the extent allowed by law.

The System Board of Directors, through its Audit and Integrity Committee, are responsible for the oversight of the SRP with day-to-day administration being assigned to the System Responsibility Officer and Vice President (SRO) and the Division System Responsibility Officers. The System Responsibility Department appropriately reviews and/or investigates all reported potential violations.

The HSHS Values Line is available for all of us, to ensure that HSHS continues to operate under the highest ethical standards and principles.
