Hartford, CT- Connecticut Children’s today (Tuesday, 8/15) announced it will increase its minimum hourly rate of pay from $15/hour to $18/hour, effective October 6, 2023.
The new pay rate will directly and immediately benefit nearly one-third of Connecticut Children’s team members. These team members’ provide important services that directly touch the lives of patients and families cared for by the pediatric health system.
Approximately 200 team members who are currently below $18/hour will see their pay increase to the new minimum rate. In addition, an additional 700 team members in related positions, who earn close to or above $18/hour, will also see their pay increase to maintain appropriate salary ranges between similar positions and levels.
“The increase in our minimum rate of pay is part of Connecticut Children’s commitment to retaining our valued team members and ensures we stay competitive in the healthcare industry,” said Jim Shmerling, DHA, FACHE, President & CEO, Connecticut Children’s. “It is also a reflection of our understanding about how challenging the current economic environment is. In addition to caring for the children and families of Connecticut and beyond, we also care about our team members. This increase is a direct investment in them.”
Connecticut Children’s expects this continued investment in its team members to improve retention, help attract top talent for open positions, improve overall team member satisfaction, and create a greater sense of belonging and engagement in the organization.
The rate of pay increase impacts both clinical and non-clinical support roles across the health system.
