Employee Benefits

How would you like to work at a community hospital where the well-being of people—beginning with you—is valued above all else? Our supportive environment, combined with a generous compensation and benefits package, allow you to balance your work and personal life, take care of your family and plan for your future. Benefits are even available to part-time employees (scheduled 24 hours or more per week). Highlights include:
Health Insurance
Our health plan covers physician visits, hospitalization, emergency care, prescriptions, routine eye exams and a fitness benefit. Coverage is effective on the first of the month following an employee's start date.

The Transparency in Coverage Final Rules require certain health plans to disclose on a public website information regarding in-network provider rates and historical out-of-network allowed amounts and billed charges for covered items and services in two separate machine-readable files (MRFs). The MRFs for the benefit package options under the Emerson Health System Welfare Benefit Plan are linked below:


Dental Insurance
Our dental plan covers preventive care at 100%, basic restorative care at 80% and major restorative care at 50%. Coverage is effective on the first of the month following an employee's start date.
Paid Time Off Program
We recognize the benefit that people derive from compensated time away from the workplace. That's why we provide an integrated program of compensated time off to be used for all absences including vacations, holidays, sick leave and personal days, offering you the ultimate in flexibility.
Retirement Savings Plan
Emerson Hospital is pleased to provide all employees with a retirement savings program through Fidelity Investments. There is no waiting period. You decide how much to invest on a before-tax basis, up to IRS maximum. The plan has a discretionary core component funded by Emerson Hospital; this contribution to the plan is determined at the start of each calendar year.
Life and Long Term Disability Insurance
At Emerson Hospital, we give you the opportunity to provide your dependents with a lifetime of financial security with basic group and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) insurance. Emerson Hospital provides employees entitled to full-time benefits with basic life and AD&D insurance coverage at no cost to the eligible employees. Coverage includes a death benefit, accelerated benefits and a terminal illness benefit. The coverage also has a conversion privilege.
Tuition Assistance

Emerson encourages employees to take advantage of opportunities that increase their knowledge and skills in their present jobs and/or prepares them for advancement within the organization.
