Hamilton Center increasing salaries, enhancing benefits to attract and retain Nurse Practitioners

Like all businesses, Hamilton Center, Inc. is committed to recruiting and retaining top talent, and the organization is building on this commitment by increasing salaries and boosting benefits for Nurse Practitioners — including a $5,000 sign on bonus and two weeks of PTO on the first day of employment.

A 2020 survey by flexjobs.com indicated that salary was the top factor considered by its job applicants in deciding which offer to accept (67 percent of applicants). HCI will be making aggressive changes to its salary schedule for nurse practitioners to help satisfy this desire. Hamilton Center’s revised starting full-time salaries for Nurse Practitioners:

  • $145,000
  • $150,000 – with five years of experience

Melvin L. Burks, President and CEO of Hamilton Center, Inc., said the changes are necessary in order for the facility to continue to serve the 12 communities in which HCI has offices.

“If we cannot serve our consumers, then our consumers may lose hope,” he said. “It’s important that we get these positions filled. In addition to starting salary, we have an ‘a la carte’ menu of benefits from which candidates can draw.”

The “a la carte” benefits menu will allow candidates to choose the benefit options that are most appealing to them. Among the items on the list are:

  • Student loan reimbursement upon hire
  • Telehealth work from home options available
  • Monthly stipend in lieu of selecting HCI insurance coverage
  • Flexible schedules (potential of four 10-hour days or three 12-hour days per week)
  • Monthly stipends to assist childcare costs

Applicants will be able to choose “two or three” additional benefits to add to their compensation.

“Hamilton Center is committed to reinventing the way we see employment,” Burks said. “Stop on by. Let’s find a way.”
