Total Compensation Package
CHS strives to create an environment that encourages you to stay with us for your entire career. One of the ways we attract and retain the best employees is by offering competitive compensation programs. Another is through our comprehensive benefit program called Choices…for health…for wealth…for life. This total rewards package is among the best in the hospital industry.
We are proud to offer you not only excellent traditional benefit plans like medical, dental, life insurance, and disability coverage, but also a cutting edge program of health improvement opportunities. The program provides tools that allow you to bring the same attention to your health that CHS does to the health of our patients.
