Corporate Responsibility Hotline has New Name


Catholic Health Initiatives’ system-wide corporate responsibility hotline, formerly called the Alertline, has a new name: the Ethics at Work Line. The phone number, 1-800/261-5607, remains the same as before the name change. “The new name is more consistent with other components of our Corporate Responsibility Program, including the Ethics at Work Reference Guide,” said Michelle Cooper, vice president of corporate responsibility for Catholic Health Initiatives. “In addition, it better reflects the purpose of this service: to provide a secure, confidential way for employees to ask questions or report corporate responsibility concerns.” Catholic Health Initiatives has also selected a new vendor for corporate responsibility reporting services, EthicsPoint of Portland, Ore. “EthicsPoint provides us with a broader array of reporting services, including a confidential Web-based reporting tool that we will explore for future implementation,” said Cooper.
