The Guthrie Clinic Announces New Compensation Package

December 21, 2021

The Guthrie Clinic has made a $23 million investment in its staff. The organization announced today, a comprehensive compensation package that will impact many of its nearly 6,000 employees across its 12-county service region. The decision was made following a comprehensive market analysis and is a significant step on The Guthrie Clinic’s journey to becoming an employer of choice in the region. 

The new compensation package includes many improvements including a new $15/hour minimum wage. It is part of an initiative to recruit and retain those who provide quality care to the communities that The Guthrie Clinic serves.

Dr. Edmund Sabanegh, President and CEO, The Guthrie Clinic said, “These actions come at a time when health care nationally is facing significant financial pressure, however, Guthrie is financially strong and we remain committed to making sure all Guthrie caregivers are paid fairly and equitably. This is one step on our journey to address a living wage. Now, more than ever, we need to care for our caregivers, so they can care for our patients.”

Dr. Sabanegh has initiated the use of the word “caregivers” for all employees at Guthrie as part of the culture that acknowledges each and every employee as being involved in providing care to patients or supporting those who directly provide care. 

Employees will receive a personalized letter outlining their new pay rate the week of January 10, 2022.
