We don't share your personal information with anyone, except as may be necessary to verify your education, experience, and other qualifications for employment.

That information is stored on a server maintained by our internet service provider who emails the document containing your employment related information to personnel in the company's Human Resources Department specifically Authorized to access it. In the alternative, the company may maintain a Profile form which you would complete and submit via a secure internet connection directly to the company's Human Resources Department. There personnel authorized to access that information review it, and follow up if warranted. Information you submit through use of your own email program is not secure. As effective as modern security practices are, no physical or electronic security system is impenetrable.

The personal information supplied by applicants for employment is shared selectively with individuals in the Human Resources Department of the company, and it may be shared as well with recruiting and hiring managers in our home office, and at our affiliated hospitals who have a business reason to know of the information because of their assigned duties. Any personal information submitted on the form accessed through the link to "Contact" or "Contact Us", is sent directly to the appropriate department director, who may share it with departmental or other company personnel whose training or expertise is necessary to provide an answer to the inquiry. Additionally, we may occasionally release information about visitors to our site when release is appropriate to comply with law, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our site, our customers, the public or Independence Physician Management.

In the unlikely event that Universal Health Services, one of its affiliated units, or substantially all of its assets are acquired by another company, information about our visitors would be among the transferred assets.
