Diversicare Healthcare Services Inc. and its subsidiaries, hereinafter collectively referred to as Diversicare, have always prided ourselves on our commitment to operating in a legal and ethical manner. As the healthcare regulatory environment becomes increasingly complex, it is essential that each and every one of us pledge ourselves to complying with all applicable laws and regulations and to achieving the highest ethical and professional standards.
Diversicare’s longstanding commitment to operating legally and ethically is reflected in the personal integrity of our employees. Compliance is a cooperative effort. Diversicare operates through its employees and has a commitment to integrity in our dealings with residents, customers, suppliers, and competitors.
Reporting a Concern
Concerns can be reported to our compliance department in several ways. You may contact us directly:
Chief Compliance Officer
Diversicare Healthcare Services

Brentwood, TN 37027
Phone: (615) 771-7575
Care Line: (888) 508-9774
Diversicare Care Line
At Diversicare, we strive to have open lines of communication for team members to raise compliance concerns directly to their supervisor or administrator but understand there can be times in which you may wish to remain anonymous or bypass the chain of command. To assist with those situations, Diversicare has engaged a 3rd party vendor, Care Line (888) 508-9774, as an alternative reporting mechanism that is operated 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct describes our approach to operating with integrity and provides an outline of how to “do the right thing every time.” It is the key informational and teaching tool for team members, vendors, service providers and all of those we work with or employ.

False Claims Acts
The Federal Civil False Claims Act permits civil lawsuits so that the federal government can recover penalties and damages against persons and entities that submit fraudulent claims for payment. The FCA establishes liability for any person who knowingly presents or causes to be presented a false or fraudulent claim to the U.S. government for payment.
