Consistent with our core values of Reverence for Each Person and Integrity, MHS has established a Corporate Compliance Program. MHS Policy #96-101-10 establishes the Corporate Compliance Program and outlines the roles and responsibilities of its employees in supporting an environment in which colleagues and affiliated professionals comply with all relevant federal and state laws and regulations and report any concerns about business practices.
