Employee Benefits

Our employees are why Norton Healthcare is one of the region’s most trusted names in health care. That’s why we do everything we can to reward you and keep you fulfilled in your career.

2019 Open Enrollment Guide

Parental leave

Norton Healthcare provides up to four weeks of 100 percent paid parental leave for employees who are expanding their families. This includes birth mothers and fathers, and adoptive parents, regardless of sexual orientation.

Time off benefits (FlexTime)

Norton Healthcare has designed FlexTime to provide you with as much flexibility as possible when you need paid time off. Use FlexTime to enjoy a vacation, celebrate a holiday when your work location is closed, or take some personal time or an occasional sick day.

FlexTime is earned based on the number of hours paid (up to 80 hours per biweekly pay period) and how many years of service you have completed. You will receive 24 hours front-loaded if you are a new employee or eight hours if you have been rehired within one year.


Norton Healthcare will match up to 4 percent of your contribution on each paycheck, with an additional match of up to 2 percent based on your years of service if financial goals are exceeded.

Employer Assisted Housing Program

Several options are available to assist employees who are statused to work a minimum of 32 (.4 FTE) hours per pay period to become first-time homebuyers:

  • Homebuyer education and counseling: Employees who complete this receive a $5,000 forgivable loan.
  • Habitat for Humanity: Buying a Habitat home may be an option for eligible employees.
