Allegheny Health Network front line hospital employees are getting a nice thank you from Highmark Health today.
The Heroes Appreciation Program is a $5 million creation for AHN workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
12,000 employees will be impacted by the bonus. This is going to staff members such as: Caregivers, nurses, medical assistants, therapists, technicians and social workers as well as the “unsung heroes” like environmental services, and maintenance staff.
“We’ve been promoting for three or four years the investment in this community from Highmark and this is another good example of what we can do because of our parent company and the commitment to this region, the rest of AHN and the entire footprint.” said Dr. Chris Clark, president of AHN Saint Vincent.
