PUBLIC NOTICE OF NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY
Heritage Valley Health System is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination for patients, employees, visitors and members of the medical staff. Unlawful discrimination is prohibited and is inconsistent with the mission and philosophy of the hospitals. The hospitals comply with the provisions of Title VI of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act to the end that no person shall be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination in the provision of any care or service on the grounds of race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency), ancestry, age, sex, religion, handicap, disability, or other legally protected basis.
Applicants to the medical staff and allied health professional staff shall not be denied membership or particular clinical privileges/duties on the basis of race, color, national origin (including limited English Proficiency), ancestry, religion or sex. Age, handicap, or disability will be considered only when the efficient delivery of patient care at the generally recognized professional level of quality will be compromised and suitable accommodation is not possible.
