Novant Health Adjusts Minimum Pay Rate

By Ken Little, posted Oct 5, 2018
Novant Health recently announced an adjustment to its current minimum wage in North Carolina from $11 to $12.50 per hour. The change benefits about 5,000 employees.
 
Novant Health operates Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center in Bolivia.
 
“Novant Health is dedicated to caring for our communities, starting with our own team members. After our initial living wage adjustment last year, we recognized we had an opportunity to further invest in our team members as they continue to provide outstanding and compassionate care and service to our patients,” Carl Armato, Novant Health CEO, said in a news release.
 
In 2017, Novant Health implemented a minimum wage of $11 per hour in North Carolina, a rate based on local costs of living over and above the state-mandated minimum wage, commonly referred to as a living wage.
 
“This update to our living wage represents about a $4 million investment in our team members,” Janet Smith-Hill, executive vice president and chief human resources officer, said in the release.
 
Novant Health is an integrated network of physician clinics, outpatient facilities and hospitals that delivers health care to communities in Virginia, North and South Carolina and Georgia.
