Compliance program

The Yakima Valley Memorial Compliance Program assists and advises all employees, hospital staff, contracted workers, volunteers, and members of the board on compliance-related activities. This program is designed to reduce the potential for fraud, waste, and abuse in hospital coding and billing programs, along with ensuring compliance with multiple other regulatory requirements that impact hospital and hospital-based licensed areas. This includes compliance with EMTALA regulations, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Conditions for Participating, and other regulatory mandates.

Our goal is to promote a culture of compliance using the Office of Inspector General’s 7 Elements of an Effective Compliance Program.

If you have a compliance-related concern, please report using our Compliance Hotline 877.684.8658 or using our EthicsPoint Portal. For compliance-related questions or for more information, please email Memorial-ComplianceProgram@yvmh.org.

All individuals have the right to report potential issues and shall not face retribution or retaliation for reporting. Additionally, to the extent possible and allowed by law, the anonymity of the individual reporting the potential concern will be protected if the individual so requests.
