The SCOOTER Store Recognizes National Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week
Date:5/13/2009

NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- To help educate people about the importance of working with lawful and ethical mobility suppliers, The SCOOTER Store, America's leading provider of power wheelchairs and scooters, celebrated National Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week May 4-8. The company joined professional compliance organizations and other agencies across the country to recognize ongoing efforts to reinforce their commitments to integrity and ethics as well as compliance with laws and regulations.

Activities during the week reflected the company's number one Core Ideology, Always Do the Right Thing, setting and achieving the highest standards regarding compliance and ethics. Maintaining this standard led The SCOOTER Store to becoming accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care, Inc., in 2003 and is in the process of applying to enter into a new reaccreditation commitment with the ACHC. This will represent nine continuous years the company has committed to adhering to the stringent standards set by this highly respected accreditation agency.

"This week is important for us as a company because our top Core Ideology, and our heartfelt passion, is to 'Always Do the Right Thing,'" said Founder, President and CEO Doug Harrison. "The words 'compliance and ethics' may have different meanings to different people; but to The SCOOTER Store they mean we know the right thing to do, and we do everything we can to follow through on it."

The SCOOTER Store's Corporate Compliance Department leadership and staff have impressive credentials: Certification in Healthcare Compliance from the Compliance Certification Board, the Certified Compliance & Ethics Professional designation from the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics, Academy for Healthcare Management Professional certification, and Certified Healthcare Compliance Officer. Recently, Director of Corporate Compliance Terry Goatley became a Certified Fraud Examiner. This certification represents his proven expertise in fraud prevention, detection and deterrence.

"The SCOOTER Store celebrated its 18th anniversary as an industry leader on May 1, and we are dedicated now more than ever to protecting the integrity of the Medicare benefit," Senior Vice President of Compliance and Corporate Compliance Officer Tim Zipp said. "Our compliance program is embodied within our employee-owners who are each committed to adhering to the rules and spirit of the system Medicare has laid down to protect the public trust."
