Below is a partial listing of the many benefits offered to employees of Greene County Medical Center.
Paid Time Off Policy
Greene County Medical Center believes that employees should have opportunities to enjoy time away from work to help balance their lives. For this reason, we provide a program of Paid Time Off (PTO) to all full- and part-time employees.
PTO is a time-off-with-pay program to provide employees the freedom to decide how to use their personal time off. Greene County Medical Center believes this program offers more liberal time off with pay than traditional vacation, sick and personal time packages.
Health and Dental Insurance
Greene County Medical Center provides group carrier health and dental insurance plans to all full-time employees and part-time employees working 56 or more hours per pay period. Insurance coverage begins on the first day of the first month following 30 days of employment. Group insurance is an employee benefit in which an employee is not required to enroll.
The medical center provides one times an employee's annual salary life insurance coverage for all full-time (72-80 hours per pay period) employees and a $10,000 life insurance policy for part-time (16-71 hours per pay period) employees. PRN status and temporary employees are not eligible.
Long-Term Disability Insurance
Full-time employees (72-80 hours per pay period) are provided long-term disability insurance.
Short-Term Disability Insurance
Employees who work at least half time (40-80 hours per pay period) are offered short-term disability insurance.
Professional Liability Insurance
The medical center maintains liability insurance coverage for employees while they are acting as agents of the medical center. This coverage is provided at no cost. Employees are encouraged to purchase their own professional liability coverage.
Flexible Benefits Plan
Employees who are budgeted at least 16 hours per pay period may participate in the Flexible Benefits Plan. Through this plan, contributions for eligible medical expenses and dependent care may be deducted from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis.
As a county facility, Greene County Medical Center participates in two programs - IPERS and Social Security - designed to provide income after retirement.
Iowa Public Employees Retirement System (IPERS) is a program where both the employee and the medical center contribute a percentage (established by IPERS) based on salary.
In addition, employees may choose to participate in the 457 plan, which is funded through pre-tax salary redirection to a qualified tax deferred investment for retirement.
The purpose of the wellness program is to encourage and reward employees for living healthy lifestyles. Greene County Medical Center provides many activities to promote wellness, including:
- A voluntary wellness program offering insurance premium discounts
- Free flu shot, annual wellness screenings and health risk assessment
- Sessions on a variety of health and wellness topics presented by internal and external professionals
- Discounts at the Greene County Community Center
