Not all departments work the same hourly schedule. As the Hospital must provide service 24 hours a day, every day of the year, employees may be required to be on duty weekends, evenings, nights and holidays. Employees and managers are encouraged to maintain open lines of communication regarding all employment matters, especially scheduling. Employee needs with schedules are met in a variety of ways: 4-, 6-, 8-, 10- and 12-hour shifts may be worked depending on need and availability. In non-clinical areas (i.e., business office environments), start and end times are flexible. Additionally, many employees have an opportunity to work three 12-hour shifts (for a total of 36 hours) while maintaining full-time benefits, while others work four 10-hour days (for a total of 40 hours).
Employees and dependent members of their immediate family are eligible to receive the current self pay allowance on charges for services provided by the Hospital that are not covered under their health insurance. Deductibles, co-pays and co-insurances do not receive any discounts or allowances.
