Benefits

Benefit Summary

Grundy County Memorial Hospital is proud to offer Associates a full benefits package including Paid Time Off, health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, short and long term disability, life insurance, and a 401k plan. The hospital's goal is to maintain an attractive blend of benefits to meet our Associate's needs. 

GCMH offers competitive wages at levels similar to that of hospitals in the Midwest. A structured pay scale is offered to compensate for experience and educational background plus an annual evaluation and potential market adjustment increase once per year. Pay periods are two weeks in length with payday occurring every other Friday - so associates are paid 26 times a year.

Paid Time Off Policy

A Paid Time Off (PTO) program is offered to all full- and part-time Associates. PTO is a time-off-with-pay program to provide the freedom to decide how to use their personal time off. It combines sick leave, personal days, vacation days, and holidays into a 'bank' of paid time off that individual Associates may draw on when they wish to schedule time off.

Health and Dental Insurance

Group health and dental insurance plans are available to all full-time Associates and part-time Associates working 32 or more hours per pay period. Insurance coverage begins on the first day of the first month following your date of employment.

Life Insurance

One times an Associates annual salary life insurance coverage is provided by the hospital for all full-time (64 hours or more per pay period) Associates and a $10,000 life insurance policy is available for part-time (32-63.99 hours per pay period) Associates. Associates also have the option of enrolling in additional supplemental life insurance. PRN status and temporary Associates are not eligible.

Long-Term Disability Insurance

Full-time (64 or more per pay period) and part-time Associates (32-63.99 hours or more per pay period) are automatically provided long-term disability insurance. Associates can also enroll in a voluntary plan to increase their long-term disability insurance amount.

Short-Term Disability Insurance

Associates who are hired at least 32 hours per pay period are automatically enrolled in short-term disability insurance.

Flexible Benefits Plan

Associates who are budgeted at least 32 hours per pay period may participate in either of the flexible spending account plans. Through this plan, contributions for eligible medical expenses and dependent care may be deducted from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis.

Retirement Programs

Grundy County Memorials Hospital provides a 401(k) plan, administered by Fidelity Investments. Associates may opt to defer a percentage of their earnings into the plan, and GCMH also provides a company match.

Wellness Program

The purpose of the wellness program is to encourage and reward Associates for living healthy lifestyles. Grundy County Memorial Hospital provides many activities to promote wellness, including:

  • A voluntary wellness program offering insurance premium discounts
  • Free flu shot, annual wellness screenings and health risk assessment
  • Sessions on a variety of health and wellness topics presented by internal and external professionals
