Credentialing - New and Existing Vendors

Conflict of Interest Policy
Sutter Health workforce members may not accept gifts or other items of value from vendors. Our financial resources belong to our communities, and we are mindful of the impact of perceptions, so we are clear in our purpose and interactions with vendors. Our negotiations and agreements with our vendors are developed with honesty & integrity, free from inappropriate bias and in the best interest of Sutter Health. We are proactive in avoiding conflicts of interest and don’t accept gifts, monetary or otherwise; provided, however, that we do accept certain donations pursuant to our Conflict of Interest Policy. See our Conflict of Interest Policy for our standards.
