Rainbow flags

WellSpan Health is announcing that the organizational minimum wage will move from $15 to $17 per hour, effective July 2, 2023.

“Providing high quality, compassionate care for our friends and neighbors starts and ends with the dedication of our 20,000 WellSpan team members. That’s why it is so important to us to invest in our team members so they can do their best every day,” said Roxanna Gapstur, Ph.D., R.N., president & CEO of WellSpan Health. “WellSpan is committed to being the healthcare employer of choice in South Central Pennsylvania and this is another important step on the journey.”

WellSpan has invested more than $245 million toward merit increases, Working as One rewards, 403(b) contributions and other support over the last two years. The organization’s unwavering commitment to its team members includes the best Total Rewards packages and funding educational opportunities in the region.

The minimum wage increase is the latest update to a multi-year strategy to lead regional healthcare organizations by raising the rate, which will now be nearly $10 above the federally mandated minimum wage.

Like the last time WellSpan raised the minimum wage in 2021, the organization is enacting associated increases for many team members who currently make slightly above the new minimum, as well. Approximately 7,000 team members will benefit from an adjustment in their pay. Affected team members will receive specific information in May.

As a leading regional health system serving South Central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland, WellSpan offers competitive salaries, well-regarded benefits packages and paid time off; a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; monetary and internal educational support for career aspirations and professional growth; and the chance to give back to local communities by joining its non-profit mission of service.

Chewy commercial says it all

I have been what I like to call a television aficionado for many, many decades. I enjoy a good evening spent in front of the old boob tube and have since I was young.
