University Hospital 2018COLUMBUS, Ohio – To thank its staff for their dedication and hard work serving our patients, their families and our community, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is providing a special recognition bonus of $1,000 each to more than 15,000 employees.  

“None of the lifesaving care we provide at Ohio State happens without our excellent staff and their commitment to serving our patients and our community. We recognize the pandemic has left many of our clinicians and support staff feeling worn out, frustrated and anxious. Yet, through these difficult times, our colleagues continually embody the best of what it means to be a Buckeye, and it is our privilege to work with this team every day,” said Chief Clinical Officer, Dr. Andrew Thomas.

The discretionary bonus goes to more than 15,000 current staff members who have been employed by the medical center since April 1, 2021, excluding most leadership roles, faculty, physicians, temporary employees and students.

“The past 18 months have been enormously challenging – for the organization and the dedicated staff who have shown grace and strength every day. We sincerely thank you for being excellent team members, care providers, researchers and educators,” said Chief Financial Officer Mark Larmore.

Eligible staff will receive the bonus in November.
