The Corporate Compliance Program is developed and implemented to demonstrate the commitment of Sandhills Center to applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations. In addition, it sets forth the code of conduct for all responsible parties including staff, Board of Directors, delegated entities and contract network providers. Sandhills Center is committed to high ethical principles, and compliance with applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations as required by our clients, including: the NC Division of Medical Assistance; the Division of Mental Health; Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services; and other state and federal regulatory bodies. Sandhills Center staff, delegated entities and contract network providers are informed of the applicable laws and regulations to ensure that they do not inadvertently engage in conduct that may raise compliance issues. Sandhills Center recognizes that its business relationships with contractors, other providers, vendors and members are subject to legal requirements and accountability standards. Sandhills Center regards the provision of high-quality behavioral health care, as well as ethical business practices, to be important characteristics of the organization and its contracted system of care. These practices are continually monitored, improved, and built upon.
