Bay Area Hospital offers a carefully designed benefits package to help meet the needs of our talented team of professionals. We are committed to offering a generous benefits package to employees who work at least 20 hours per week. Employees who work less than 20 hours per week receive a 20 percent pay differential.
Bay Area Hospital offers medical, dental, vision and prescription drug coverage to members of the UFCW union so you and your family can receive the care needed to maintain good health.
Bay Area Hospital provides a pension plan as a vehicle to plan for retirement. Plan requirements include five-year vesting, and an employee must work at least 750 hours of service in a calendar year to earn a full year of eligibility service. The pension plan is designed primarily to provide you with a monthly income when you retire. Bay Area Hospital provides the 403(b) tax sheltered account as an additional vehicle to save and plan for retirement.
BASIC LIFE/AD&D INSURANCE
Bay Area Hospital provides a term life insurance benefit to employees at no cost. The benefit is based on your gross monthly income and ranges from $14,000 to $35,000 for basic life and another $14,000 to $35,000 for accidental death and dismemberment.
