For Suppliers, Vendors and Contractors
Thank you for your interest in doing business with Spectrum Health. Our organizational mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve. We strive to achieve this mission through our values of excellence, accountability, compassion, integrity, respect and teamwork. These values are outlined in the Spectrum Health Code of Excellence.
We place the utmost importance on the observance of the principles of our Code of Excellence and expect all with whom we do business to conduct themselves accordingly. All vendors/contractors will be held accountable for their actions, and violations of the law or of the policies and principles of Spectrum Health will not be excused or tolerated.
Pursuant to the federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, as well as other Medicare fraud and abuse laws, Spectrum Health is required to provide vendors/contractors with information about the federal and state laws regarding false claims, Medicare Parts C and D compliance, penalties and whistleblower rights and protections under such laws.
