Corporate Compliance

2015 Worlds Most EthicalOver the years Baptist Health has developed and nurtured a corporate culture of integrity. In fact, our mission statement describes our commitment to the highest principles of integrity and moral practice. To help us live up to our standards, the Board of Trustees has chartered the Audit & Compliance Committee. Under the Committee’s direction, the Audi​t & Compliance Department has developed a world-class Corporate Compliance Program, structured to include those best practices needed to prevent, detect, and respond to allegations of unethical or illegal activity.

The Code of Ethics is the cornerstone of our Corporate Compliance Program. The Code describes the standards Baptist Health has adopted and communicates our expectations that all stakeholders will adhere to those standards. It also contains information regarding our non-retaliation policy; a policy that strictly prohibits retaliation for reporting a suspected violation in good faith. In fact, we have developed many policies and procedures that provide specific guidance related to the topics discussed in our Code of Ethics.

In addition, the Code of Ethics contains a long list of contacts available to anyone who wishes to report a suspected violation. Anonymous reports may be made to the Compliance Hotline, which is available 24/7, at 888-492-9329. On line reports may be made at—enter access ID BHS.

Baptist Health conducts all of its business activities based upon the core values of integrity and transparency. To this end, we have adopted rigorous conflict of interest policies for our Board and our employees. Adherence to these policies helps us to ensure that our business activities are conducted according to the best interests of Baptist Health, thereby allowing us to fulfill our not-for-profit mission of serving our community.
