Pete’s Perspective: Employee Retention Payments

Pete’s Perspective: Employee Retention Payments

Media Contact: Karina Rusk

September 6, 2022 - Salinas Valley Health is proud to partner with the State of California in recognizing our team of dedicated healthcare professionals. The State has allocated more than $1 billion to provide medical center staff with retention payments. This special recognition is a tribute to the invaluable contributions of those in the healthcare industry and the impact the pandemic has had on retaining them.

We are working closely with the state to facilitate the retention payments. The value of our team to our patients and to our community cannot be overstated. We welcome this opportunity to recognize and honor our amazing staff for their contributions. The Department of Health Care Services is ironing out final details of the Retention Payment Program and we will share additional information once received from the state.

Our team at Salinas Valley Health shows heroic courage, skill and compassion every day. Its service during the pandemic has been extraordinary.

Good health is a great gift. I’m honored to salute those who dedicate their careers to helping others rise in health and well-being.

Be safe and be well.

– Pete
