  • We recognize that our greatest strength lies in our people who create our success and determine our reputation as an institution of outstanding patient care.

  • We will familiarize ourselves and comply with the contents of the employee handbook, as well as with the policies and procedures applicable to our employment and responsibilities at Nyack Hospital.

Pre-Employment Information

  • Individuals applying for employment at the hospital are required to provide accurate and truthful information to the Human Resource Department concerning their employment eligibility.
  • In evaluating candidates we take all reasonable steps necessary to hire and retain employees who have appropriate and current training, experience and competency. We also screen applicants to avoid hiring an individual, who is currently excluded, suspended, debarred or otherwise ineligible to participate in federal or state healthcare programs.

Non-Retaliation

  • We do not allow any act of retaliation against employees who in good faith report a valid concern and/or a violation of a law, regulation, policy or the Code of Conduct. In the event of a violation, Human Resources will follow established disciplinary procedures.

Gifts

  • Gifts and entertainment represent an area of potential conflict and at times may appear to influence the working relationship. Personal gifts should not be accepted if the acceptance would raise questions as to whether a business decision had been inappropriately influenced.
