Our Commitment

The University of Vermont (UVM) Health Network is committed to the highest standards of ethics, honesty, and integrity in pursuit of its mission of improving the health of the people in the communities we serve. The UVM Health Network policies provide guidance and rules for all members of the UVM Health Network affiliates and community to ensure we work together in an honest, ethical and compassionate manner.

The UVM Health Network is committed to an environment where open and honest communication is the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor or leadership in instances where you believe violations of the Code of Conduct or other policies have occurred.

The UVM Health Network maintains an anonymous reporting hotline – the UVM Health Network Anonymous Reporting Hotline -- hosted by a third-party provider, EthicsPoint. You are encouraged to utilize this hotline to report violations of state or federal laws and regulations, your affiliate Code of Conduct, or any other policies or procedures. You may also file a report to ask for guidance related to the Code of Conduct.

The information you provide will be sent to us by EthicsPoint on a totally confidential and anonymous basis if you should choose, although you are also welcome to leave your name and contact information. The UVM Health Network representative investigating your report may send you a message via the anonymous EthicsPoint system if additional information is needed in order to thoroughly investigate your report of noncompliance. After you have made a report, EthicsPoint will provide you with a unique code that you can use later to get messages or provide additional information through either the phone or internet reporting systems, while maintaining your anonymity. Your comments will be heard, and reports of noncompliance will be investigated.

See the Anonymous Reporting Hotline FAQs for more information.
