Paid Time Off

Audubon County Memorial Hospital & Clinics believes that employees should have opportunities to enjoy time away from work to help balance their lives. For this reason, we provide a program of Paid Time Off (PTO) to all full-and part-time employees. PTO is a time-off-with-pay program to provide employees the freedom to decide how to use their personal time off. Audubon County Memorial Hospital & Clinics believes this program offers more liberal time off with pay than traditional vacation, sick and personal time packages.

Employees begin earning PTO immediately and are eligible to use their PTO following successful completion of the orientation period. Non-exempt employees earn PTO at the rate of 8.46% of hours worked per pay period. Exempt Employees earn PTO at the rate of 10.38% of hours worked per pay period. PTO accrual rates increase after every five years of service.

Non-Exempt Employee (Hourly) Accrual Rate Schedule:

Health, Dental, and Vision Insurance

Audubon County Memorial Hospital & Clinics provides health, dental, and vision insurance plans to all full-time employees and part-time employees working 48 or more hours per pay period.  Insurance coverage begins on the first day of the first month following the employee’s start date.  Insurance is an employee benefit in which an employee is not required to enroll. Our Health Insurance is through Wellmark, dental is through Delta Dental, and vision is through VSP.

Life Insurance

Audubon County Memorial Hospital & Clinics provides one times an employee’s annual salary (up to $100,000.00) life insurance coverage for all full-time employees.

Long-Term and Short-Term Disability Insurance

Employees of the hospital are eligible for benefits derived from short-term disability (STD) and long-term disability (LTD) plans. Employees are eligible after continuous employment for 6 months and must work a minimum of 22 hours per week, or 44 hours per pay period. The hospital pays the premium for Life, AD&D, short-term disability, and long term disability.

Flexible Spending Account

This spending account plan allows you to pay for medical and dependent care expenses with pre-tax dollars. Employees are eligible the first month of employment or at the beginning of the plan year.

Health Savings Account

Employees that elect the Qualified High Deductible Health Plan (QHDHP) are eligible to create a Health Savings Account (HSA). HSAs are a great way to save money and efficiently pay for medical expenses. HSAs are tax-advantaged savings accounts that accompany high deductible health plans (HDHPs).

Elective Insurance

Employees also have the option to enroll in accident, cancer, and critical care insurance through Guardian.

Retirement Programs

Iowa Public Employees Retirement System (IPERS) is a defined benefit pension program in which both the employee and the hospital contribute a percentage (established by IPERS) of the employees salary. 6.29% of the employee’s gross wages are withheld from each paycheck and sent to IPERS along with 9.44% percent of the employee’s gross wages that are contributed by the hospital.

In addition, employees may choose to participate in the 457B plan through Mass Mutual, which is funded through pre-tax salary redirection to a qualified tax deferred investment for retirement.
