Physician Benefits

Physician Benefits

Medical/dental - We offer comprehensive medical and dental benefits for you and your family, including prescriptions. 

Long- and short-term disability - We offer long- and short-term disability income benefits for the times you can’t work because of illness or injury. 

Occurrence-based malpractice insurance - We provide occurrence-based malpractice insurance to ensure our physicians are covered regardless of when a claim is filed. 

College advantage 529 plan - Save for your child’s college education through this pre-tax program. 

Pension - Physicians working 1,000 or more hours each year are automatically enrolled in this plan. You are fully vested after five years of qualified service. 

403(b) plan - We offer an optional retirement savings program that allows you to invest pre-tax contributions into mutual funds or a stable value account. Most employees are eligible for an employer match after one year of employment. 

Vacation - Physicians receive a generous amount of time for vacation and holidays. 

Flexible spending accounts - Take advantage of the tax savings associated with these accounts by setting some money aside for child and health care expenses. 

Health and wellness program - We offer a comprehensive, holistic and award-winning wellness program to help our employees and their families maintain and improve their health. The American Heart Association has designated Children's as a Start! Fit Friendly Company since 2007. In 2009, the Ohio Department of Health bestowed the Healthy Ohioans-Healthy Worksite Award on Children's. 

Travel accident insurance - When you travel on hospital business you are covered by this additional life insurance benefit. 

Employee assistance program - Confidential counseling services are available for you, your spouse or your dependent children through the Tri-County Employee Assistance Program. The first six counseling sessions are free. 

Employee discounts - When you or your dependents come to Children’s for care or are treated by an affiliated physician, you may receive a 50 percent discount on coinsurance balances. Lab work and radiology procedures are covered at 100%. 

Continuing medical education (CME) - The hospital sponsors more than 80 CME activities every year. Physicians receive time off and reimbursement for CME activities at and away from the hospital based on their job classification. 

Adoption reimbursement program - Financial assistance is available to employees upon finalization of their adoption process. 

Sick child care - A care center for mildly-ill children is available at the Akron campus so you can keep your children close when they aren’t feeling well. The hospital subsidizes a portion of the cost.
