More than 2,750 staff at University of Iowa Health Care will soon be seeing a little more in their paycheck due to a mid-year market adjustment made by hospital leadership.
“In order to continue to provide outstanding care for our patients, we also must take care of our own staff,” says Suresh Gunasekaran, chief executive officer of University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics, and associate vice president, University of Iowa Health Care. “One of the ways we are doing this is by making market adjustments that are more in line with the market.”
UI Health Care continuously monitors the market to ensure that our salaries are competitive. These analyses are then balanced against financial performance and operational priorities. At this time, we are able to provide mid-year market adjustments to nine employee classifications that were identified as most in need of adjustments to remain competitive in the market.
“Every employee is valued for their important contribution to the mission,” says Gunasekaran. While we are able to provide mid-year adjustments only for part of our workforce at this time, we will continue our ongoing review of job classifications for competitiveness.”
