The Corporate Compliance and Ethics Program

Essential Senior Health and Living (ESHL) is committed to the highest standards of ethics, honesty, and integrity in pursuit of its mission. Members of the Board of Directors (Board), the President/CEO, members of senior management, employees, medical staff, volunteers, vendors, independent contractors, and others representing ESHL are expected to adhere to these standards of conduct in the discharge of their duties. The ESHL Corporate Compliance and Ethics Program demonstrates the commitment to ethical conduct and compliance by setting forth guidelines for conduct designed to prevent and detect violations of law and encouraging compliance by providing support, training, and educational resources to assist ESHL in fulfilling its responsibilities. The program is designed to assist and facilitate ESHL in fulfilling its compliance responsibilities by creating a process to monitor compliance efforts and documenting the expectations for members of the ESHL community in the performance of their responsibilities at ESHL.

ESHL has a Corporate Compliance and Ethics Committee, chaired by the Corporate Compliance Officer (CCO) and composed of members of senior management necessary to support the CCO in fulfilling his or her responsibilities under the Program.
