Leadership Benefits

As one of our six imperatives, we consider people to be our most valuable asset. Ochsner has made it a priority to provide all employees a comprehensive, integrated benefits package to offer meaningful choices to meet the needs of individual employees as well as their families. This competitive package is customized to recognize the needs of our diversified team of physicians and employees and to allow employees to seamlessly transition between facilities without benefit disruption.

Ochsner Health System leaders enjoy a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Medical and Dental Benefits provided by Humana
  • Performance bonuses
  • Annual Merit Increases based on performance
  • Generous vacation program starting at 29 days of time off annually
  • 401(k) Retirement plan
  • Flexible spending account
  • Tuition assistance
  • Discounts at various retailers
  • Salary continuation program
  • Customizable Group Variable Universal Life insurance program

 

Compensation:

Ochsner Health System is committed to providing all employees with a compensation package that is competitive with market pay while recognizing individual differences in performance and experience. To achieve this objective, Ochsner has a Compensation department that thoroughly reviews market studies, internal equity, and each individual candidate’s background and experience to determine the salary range for that candidate. Salary ranges are determined based on total years of relevant experience and educational background.

Ochsner Health System offers a comprehensive compensation package that may include any combination of the following:

  • Base pay
  • Performance bonuses
  • Annual Merit Increases based on performance
  • Competitive benefits
  • Generous vacation program
  • Retirement plan
  • Flexible spending account
  • Tuition assistance
  • Discounts at various retailers
  • Health and Wellness programs

 

Relocation:

As part of Ochsner Health System’s commitment to recruiting the most qualified candidates, we may provide monetary assistance and reimbursement for certain expenses associated with relocation. The actual amount of the relocation package will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Relocation expenses include the moving of household goods, personal effects, travel, and living expenses, excluding utility and other deposits and meal costs incurred. These expense reimbursements may be subject to federal income tax (IRS) provisions, which are taxable to the employee. Any employee who receives relocation assistance and subsequently voluntarily terminates within one year of his or her date of hire will be required to repay a prorated share of the relocation assistance received.

Summary of the Relocation Process:

  • A Human Resources Leader will approve the proposed package.

  • A Human Resources representative will utilize the “pre-move” questionnaire to obtain information from the selected candidate for an informed estimate. The representative will then contact selected vendor(s) for an actual estimate.

  • The selected employee may choose to perform a “self move” and be reimbursed accordingly by presenting appropriate receipts.

  • The designated Human Resources representative will coordinate the arrangements for relocation prior to employment and process all requests for payment of relocation expenses and allowances after the candidate begins employment.

  • Relocation expenses will be reimbursed up to the specified amount based on received receipts and supporting documents. Additionally, Ochsner will follow applicable state and federal guidelines, including IRS regulations regarding the payment and reporting of relocation assistance.
