U.Va.’s Medical Center Revamps its Compensation System

Many employees in the University of Virginia Medical Center will see pay increases in their March 31 paycheck after recent adjustments were made to bring salaries into line with other medical centers in the region. Current changes include an increase in shift differential pay of between 35 cents and $1 per hour for many positions that work evening, night and weekend shifts. In addition, the current system of 31 different pay rates for employees to be on call is being simplified to just two rates — $4 per hour or $2.50 per hour. Also, all nurses who work in in-patient and procedure areas and who are Clinician I through Clinician IV on the clinical ladder will receive a 35 cent-per-hour increase. Other positions will also see pay increases to bring them into line with current market conditions. Full story.
