Community Health Network increases its minimum wage to $11 per hour
INDIANAPOLIS – Community Health Network announced today it is increasing the minimum wage for employees who work in its acute care and ambulatory care services, and at Community Visionary Enterprises, Inc., to $11 per hour, effective Jan. 4, 2016.
The move will result in a pay increase for more than 400 employees within the network, which employs more than 13,000 across its entire healthcare system.
“There is much discussion across the country focused on increasing the minimum wage and Community Health Network decided to take a proactive step in that direction,” said Bryan Mills, president and CEO of Community Health Network. “We aren’t taking this step because we have to, but rather because it’s the right thing to do.”
Employees impacted by the increase will see the results in paychecks distributed on Jan. 22. Employees were notified of the move just prior to the Christmas holiday.
“Ensuring the best possible employee experience has long been a top priority at Community,” said Mills. “We continue to invest in our team and improve the way we operate to ensure we attract and retain the best talent.”
