To assure  all our affiliated corporation operations are being conducted in compliance with applicable law and the highest ethical standards, Fort Hudson has established a Corporate Compliance Program under the direction of the Corporate Compliance Officer.

Why is compliance important to me? Compliance affects everyone. You are expected to

  • Carry out your duties with honesty and integrity
  • “Do the right thing” when carrying out your job duties.
  • Learn and understand the laws and regulations that apply to your position to follow those requirements.

How do I report concerns? Report suspected compliance violations such as improper coding or billing by an employee, contractor, or agent of Fort Hudson Health System, Inc.  to your immediate supervisor. If you do not feel comfortable contacting your supervisor, please contact: Amanda Waite, Corporate Compliance Officer. You may email directly to awaite@forthudson.com
You may also use our CONFIDENTIAL hotline @ 518-747-9047 Ext. 261.   If you contact us by phone, you do not have to identify yourself. Please provide us enough information to initiate an investigation. Specific names, dates, times, locations, and issue-specific facts will allow us to conduct a full investigation.

You may also use the online “Click & Report” form below.  If you contact us via online, please note that all fields of the form must be completed for sucessful submission.  If you wish to remain anonymous, use a temporary email account (ex. gmail or hotmail acct) and temporary name.

We are committed to maintaining your confidentiality which is consistent with existing Fort Hudson Health System’s policies.

  • Fort Hudson supports issue reporting and employee involvement through no-retaliation policy.
  • No one who reports an issue in good faith will be subjected to reprisal, discipline or discrimination based on having made a report.
