Removal of Legacy E-mail Addresses

Please be advised that all business email communications will only be directed to your email address as of May 8, 2015. While it may have been easier in the past to receive business correspondence through personal email platforms, there are many good reasons, including security, privacy, etc. for which this is not a sustainable or a secure solution (and violates SHC policies).

Of particular note, the Medical Staff/Credentialing Office will no longer accept physicians’ instructions to use your personal email address for credentialing. All credentialing documents, notification of applications pending, license/DEA renewals, etc. will be sent to your email.

(NOTE: If your email address is not available at on-boarding, a 30-day grace period will be allowed for you to use your personal email. At that point, your email address will be automatically updated.)

Please be advised that communications may include time sensitive documents. It is imperative that you check your email address daily.

Additionally, please be sure to update your business cards and email signature with the correct email address. For your convenience, I have provided your practice administrators with instructions on how to add your SHC email account to your personal mobile devices.
