Health care workers were pushed to their limits over the past two years, but the 79,000 employees at Northwell Health, New York State’s largest health care provider and private employer, say they’ve been protected both financially and emotionally. More than 54,000 Northwell workers who were instrumental in the COVID-19 response received a $2,500 bonus and an additional week of PTO. The company also offered enhanced housing benefits, crisis care reimbursement, and a subsidized in-person childcare program for the 2020–2021 school year. “From top leadership to local management you get the feeling that you are valued as both an employee and a human being,” says one worker. To further that, Northwell set up Tranquility Tents at its facilities, with behavioral health professionals on-site, to support workers before or after their shifts.
