In appreciation for your continued commitment and dedication in caring for our patients and to the success of the organization, the board of directors has made the decision to implement a pay rate increase. This is a statement of confidence in you and the people who work for our organization. The increase will not be tied to performance evaluations, it will be “across-the-board.” All employees (with the exception of contractors, physicians, DMPG advanced practice providers and vice presidents) will see a 5% increase in pay on their August 31 paycheck (from the August 13 pay period).
In addition, DeKalb Medical will be implementing a minimum livable wage policy, effective the same pay period. Employees who currently make less than $12 per hour will see their pay increased to $12 per hour or by 5%, whichever is greater. No DeKalb Medical employee will be paid less than $12 per hour.
