The purpose of these Guidelines is to articulate Citizens Memorial Healthcare’s expectations of Vendors in their interactions with Citizens Memorial Healthcare.

Manufacturers, providers and suppliers of health care products and services frequently cultivate relationships with Staff Members and Providers in a position to generate business through a variety of practices, including gifts, entertainment and personal services compensation arrangements. These activities have a high potential for fraud and abuse. Any transaction that implies a link between gifts or donations and Vendor selection must be discontinued.

Citizens Memorial Healthcare strives to “Be the first choice for customer focused healthcare to every generation” and therefore, is committed to upholding the highest ethical and professional standards. Citizens Memorial Healthcare is committed to assisting its Vendors to comply with these standards, Citizens Memorial Healthcare Policy & Procedure, and any and all applicable state and federal laws and regulations.
