Frisbie Memorial Hospital's ability to excel at caring for the community depends on its people. That's why we invest in our workforce and reward employees for exceptional performance — and why we offer a comprehensive and highly competitive benefits package.
Our benefits program is designed with you—the individual in mind. Employees in positions requiring at least 32 hours per week are considered full time and are eligible to participate in all benefits described. Part time employees hired to work a minimum of 20 hours per week also enjoy a full array of benefits.
We know that "one size doesn't fit all," therefore we offer you the choice between two medical plans.
Each PPO plan has been carefully designed to help you cut costs by reducing your out-of-pocket expense through freedom of choice. You decide where to receive your care—inside or outside the Frisbie Network.
You automatically receive a prescription drug card at no additional cost when you enroll in Frisbie's medical plan.

Paid Time-Off Program
Everyone needs time away from work – whether to take care of personal matters, to relax, or to recover from an illness or injury. With Paid Time Off (PTO), you have flexibility.
Under the PTO program, your vacation, holidays and sick days are combined into one bank of hours. You accrue time each pay period. You can use it the pay period after you accrue it or save it and use it later. That way, you can use the hours in your PTO bank to schedule time off when you need it … for reasons that are important to you.
