CHARLOTTE – Atrium Health is announcing a $19 million investment in pay increases for over 15,000 teammates.
Inpatient nurses will receive on average a 5 percent increase, and those in other eligible nursing support roles will receive between a 2 percent and 5 percent increase with a targeted implementation by the end of March 2019.
“Our Atrium Health nursing team represents some of the finest healthcare professionals in the country, and this increase is a demonstration of our continued commitment to those who provide exceptional care to our patients, families and communities every single day,” said Maureen Swick, system nurse executive for Atrium Health.
In 2018, nearly all Atrium Health teammates received some form of performance-based incentive payment, wage increase, or market pay adjustment, totaling nearly $108 million of additional income. This includes a minimum wage increase to $12.50 in June 2018, as well as a separate nursing wage increase in July 2018.
