LifeBridge Health raises minimum wage for hundreds of employees

LifeBridge Health on Monday announced it has raised the minimum wage for hundreds of employees, including all hospital-based employees, to $16 an hour.

This increase comes less than two years after the organization implemented a $15-an-hour minimum wage that affected employees in frontline jobs throughout the health system.

The new rates took effect in October with more 270 employees seeing the increase in their November paychecks. The minimum wage increase applies to the base rate for nearly 2,500 positions, with many incumbents already meeting or exceeding the $16-an-hour rate through annual and merit increases.  Along with hospital positions, the minimum wage increase also applies to select outpatient and clinic roles in the health system.
