Notice to Vendors, Contractors and Agents


PeaceHealth’s Organizational Integrity (OI) Program is designed to establish an ethical culture within PeaceHealth that promotes prevention, detection, and resolution of conduct that does not conform to federal and state laws and regulations or PeaceHealth’s policies. 

PeaceHealth Code of Conduct

PeaceHealth's Code of Conduct is based on our Core Values.

It combines our concern for fulfilling the requirements of the law with an emphasis on responsible conduct, a renewed commitment to excellence, stewardship of our resources, and a supportive work environment.

The Code of Conduct represents a reaffirmation of our longterm commitment to ethical and legal business practices, high quality care, and services to the communities where our facilities are located. It illustrates how these values should be applied to our daily work lives.

This Code of Conduct applies to all PeaceHealth employees, as well as physicians, board members, students, volunteers, contractors, and vendors.

The Statement of Common Values describes our core values of respect, stewardship, collaboration and social justice define how we provide service.

Further details on PeaceHealth’s mission, vision, and values can be found at our Mission, Vision and Values website.

False Claims Act

PeaceHealth is required by federal law to provide information to all its contractors and agents regarding the federal false claims act, administrative remedies for false claims and statements, the state false claims act and whistleblower protections under these laws. The federal and state false claims acts play an important role in detecting fraud, waste and abuse in federal health care programs.

For further information regarding Fraud, Waste and Abuse please see the FWA Job Aid.

Our Policy. PeaceHealth’s Organizational Integrity Program includes monitoring and auditing for compliance that helps prevent or detect errors in coding or billing.

  • PH expects that our employees who are involved with creating and filing claims for payment for services that we provide will only use true, complete and accurate information to make the claim.
  • PH expects that anyone with a concern about a possible False Claim at a PH facility will use the OI Reporting Process immediately so that PH can investigate and correct any errors.
  • PH’s policy on non-retaliation protects our employees from adverse action when they do the right thing and report any genuine concern via the OI Reporting Process.
  • PH will investigate any allegation of retaliation against an associate for speaking up, and will protect and/or restore rights to anyone who raised a genuine concern.

Our Promise. Our employees work hard to ensure that every claim for payment for the care we provide is correct and accurate, so that we do not violate the law, or break the trust we maintain with our patients and communities.
