At Penn State Health, we know that if we take care of our employees, they will take care of our patients. That’s why we offer more than benefits – we offer Total Rewards. We aim to attract and fully develop the best talent we can because we want our impact of helping others to be significant. We realize that we cannot achieve our goal of being the most trusted healthcare organization in Pennsylvania without highly-engaged and highly-cared for employees who receive competitive rewards. We want our employees to BeWell, BeSecure, BeRewarded, BeBalanced and BeSupported throughout their career at Penn State Health. 

Our Philosophy

Hire the best employees, keep them engaged and nurture their overall development. We value skilled and compassionate team members who are committed to fulfilling our mission. We desire that those who work here feel supported and flourish because of their training and individual level of commitment, and also because of the diverse programs and resources that we offer.

Our compensation and benefit programs also reflect our commitment to being market-competitive. We realize that our employees have a choice of where to work, and we make sure that what we offer is in line with or ahead of competitors within healthcare markets. While programs and individual pay levels will always reflect differences in job responsibilities, geographies, marketplace considerations, and individual performance, the overall structure of our Total Rewards Program is similar across the organization.

Reviewed regularly, with a goal of achieving not just good practice, but best practice.

We aim to recognize each of our team members for their unique contributions to Penn State Health. While we all serve our patients differently, most of us appreciate hearing that we’ve done a stellar job in our work and that we’re making an impact. Therefore, we’ve designed transparent programs and compensation practices to make sure we’re acknowledging outstanding achievement.  Offering creative, meaningful work that is also financially and emotionally rewarding yields exceptional results.
