ACH recognizes that our employees are our primary asset, and our principle source for the provision of quality healthcare to the children of Arkansas.
In order to achieve our vision to be an employer of choice, ACH must attract, retain and motivate a highly qualified and competent work force. In accordance with this objective, our base pay will target the market’s average pay for similar jobs among our peer hospitals/industry, which is obtained from external and custom salary surveys. To ensure internal equity, pay ranges and placement of staff within ranges are made in accordance with established ACH pay practices. Base rates will be supplemented through performance-based merit increases.
In addition to cash compensation, ACH provides comprehensive benefit plans designed to address employee’s health and wellness, retirement accumulation needs, and the employee’s work/life balance. The ACH employee benefit programs are both contributory and non-contributory, and designed to allow flexibility for choices and coverage consistent with individual needs and circumstances and with practices in peer hospitals/industry.
Base Pay - each job has a pay range and an employee's base pay is determined by their education and relevant experience for the position that they are hired. Base pay may increase with market increases and annual merit evaluations.
Merit Increases - an employee is eligible for merit increases based on overall performance.
Special Pay - ACH provides shift differentials for evening, night and weekend shifts. Additionally, hourly employees are eligible for overtime pay at time and one- half after they have worked over 40 hours in a week.
