What We Offer

Employed physicians can participate in all JCMH-offered benefits including health insurance, 401k matching, etc.  Our retirement plan is very aggressive and unique as a Public Trust Authority hospital that is exempt from Social Security participation.  Rather than paying into SS, a 4% mandatory reduction is taken from the employee’s gross salary (pre-taxed) and matched 100% by JCMH.  Both amounts are deposited in the employee-owned 401a account.  Then, additional pre-taxed investment is allowed up to 7% of gross salary with an additional 50% match by JCMH.  Effectively, our employees can deposit 18.5% of their gross salary into a qualified tax-deferred 401a/401k by only contributing 10.5%.

  • Malpractice insurance
  • CME reimbursement (typically up to $5,000 per year)
  • PTO accrual
  • CME PTO (8 days per year)
  • Starbucks kiosk in our physician lounge that is free for staff doctors
