Code of Conduct

Purpose Of The Code Of Conduct

Our Code of Conduct provides guidance to all Kaweah Health (Kaweah Health) employees and our care partners by creating and fostering an environment in which all stakeholders feel empowered and obligated to “do the right thing.” The Code of Conduct assists us in carrying out our daily activities and working within appropriate ethical and legal standards. These obligations apply to our relationships with patients, affiliated physicians, third-party payers, subcontractors, independent contractors, vendors, volunteers, consultants and one another.

The Code of Conduct is a critical component of our Compliance Program. We have developed the Code of Conduct to ensure we all understand our ethical obligations and standards, administrative regulations, and medical staff bylaws comply with all applicable laws and regulations. Adherence to the Compliance Program is a condition of employment at Kaweah Health. Likewise, the granting of medical staff privileges and the offer of employment at Kaweah Health is contingent upon acceptance of and compliance with the Compliance Program.

The Code of Conduct is intended to be comprehensive and easily understood. However, in many cases, the subject matter discussed may have complexities that require additional guidance and direction. To provide additional guidance, we have developed comprehensive policies and procedures which may be accessed in Kaweah Health’s Policy Tech system. The policies expand upon many of the principles communicated in our Code of Conduct. The standards set forth in the Code of Conduct are mandatory and must be followed.
