Our Commitment to Business Integrity
Our commitment to deliver high-quality, affordable and accessible healthcare to our patients is aligned with our commitment to conduct our business with honesty and integrity. We have a duty to respect our patient’s right to confidentiality, demonstrate responsible, fair, honest and collaborative leadership, and maintain an ethical standard of doing business. In order to be regarded as the most respected and trusted provider of hospital services by our patients, doctors and funders of healthcare, we act upon these duties.
Our stakeholders which includes our employees, patients, supporting doctors, shareholders, suppliers, society and community, healthcare funders, industry associations, media and government expect that the Group embodies honesty and integrity in all our decisions and actions. Sound ethical relations with all our stakeholders are of fundamental importance to us.
The Group’s Mission, Vision, and Code of Ethics and Business Conduct provide the foundation for our organization’s standards of business conduct. As a result, it is important for each employee to be familiar with these beliefs to guide them in making the right decisions.
Code of Ethics and Business Conduct
Our commitment to the highest ethical standards is embodied in the Group’s values which demonstrate our adherence to four core elements of ethics: fairness, transparency, accountability and responsibility.
To continue to operate and maintain our reputation as a Company that puts the needs of our people and our patients first, we must each learn, understand and comply with our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct.
Whistleblowing and Business Ethics Reporting
Our Business Ethics Reporting Hotline, hosted by a third-party hotline provider, EthicsPoint, provides employees, suppliers and others with a means to report potential violations of the Group’s Code of Ethics and Business Conduct, our policies or applicable law.
The hotline is an important part of our culture of being accountable and ethical. All employees have an obligation to report suspected Code of Conduct violations, and to ask questions, raise issues and seek guidance when a course of action is unclear. Employees, stakeholders, and other individuals who want to raise a query or concern about the Evercare Group or any of its affiliated companies should contact the Group’s Business Ethics Reporting Hotline.
