Corporate Compliance

Crouse Health is committed to providing the best care and one of the many ways we do so is through our Corporate Compliance Program. Our team works to ensure that Crouse complies with the various federal, state and local rules and regulations governing healthcare organizations. Though the program is designed to prevent and detect fraud and abuse based on these regulations, it also has a primary responsibility to ensure that we foster an environment where patient safety and confidentiality are top priorities.

For more information about Crouse Health’s Corporate Compliance Policy, review the Handbook or contact Director of Risk Management and Corporate Compliance Katie Shepard, RHIA, CHC, CPRHM, who serves as the hospital’s Compliance Officer and Privacy Officer, at 315-470-7477. You may also call our confidential — and anonymous — Corporate Compliance Hotline at 315-470-7770.
