In light of continued progress and improved COVID-19 metrics reported by the NCDHHS, we are now providing patients with the opportunity to be seen face to face.

PORT Health is committed to fostering an organizational environment of compliance and to make all good faith efforts with adherence to all applicable laws, rules, regulations, policies and procedures. A compliance program and procedures are established to support adherence to this policy.
The Compliance Program has been developed to assist all PHS employees, Board Members, Students and contract providers in complying with organization’s Code of Ethics and Policies and Procedures, False Claims Act, Anti-kickback Statute, confidentiality laws, and other applicable statutes and regulations. Its primary purpose is to prevent and detect violations, provide a system for reporting compliance concerns, develop corrective actions, ensure that all employees receive appropriate training and continually monitor compliance.
Because laws and regulations are constantly changing and sometimes are complex, the implementation of a compliance program cannot guarantee that all compliance issues will be fully addressed. PHS relies on each individual’s integrity and requires each employee to report information concerning possible misconduct. Reports made by employees are confidential and no adverse action will be taken against the employee due to good faith reporting.
