Saints Memorial Medical Center

After September 11, 2001, many of the employees of Saints Memorial Medical Center (SSMC) were mobilized. SSMC is a non-profit hospital with a nursing shortage. Nevertheless, it is important to SSMC that none of their employees suffer from financial hardship while on deployment.

Initially there was not a policy in effect for long-term mobilization. However, SSMC immediately granted all mobilized members pay differential and continued benefits, even employees that had only been with SSMC for only a week. The company sends letters and care packages, continues benefits and provides a network for family support.
