SharpChoice Benefits Plan
The SharpChoice package ensures that employees and their families are protected against catastrophic financial loss resulting from an illness or injury. SharpChoice includes:
Sharp$aver Retirement Plan
The Sharp$aver 401(a) plan allows for employee after-tax contributions with matching contributions made by Sharp. This savings plan also provides educational opportunities and expert investment resources to help employees shape their retirement strategies.
Tax-Deferred Retirement Program
Sharp’s tax-deferred program is a long-term savings plan that offers employees pre-tax contributions with available loan and withdrawal provisions. Because contributions and earnings credited to the tax-deferred account(s) accumulate on a tax-deferred basis, substantial amounts of money may be invested for a surprisingly small cost.
Paid Leave Plan
The paid leave plan at Sharp HealthCare provides replacement income for our employees to take time off for rest and relaxation, or while they one of their family members recovers from a temporary illness or injury. Paid time off (PTO) and extended sick insurance (ESI) can be used as they are accrued.
Group Voluntary Benefit Plans
Sharp HealthCare employees are also eligible to participate in the following group voluntary benefit plans:
Sharp Best Health is a comprehensive wellness program available to Sharp HealthCare employees. Offering online wellness tools, interactive workshops, one-on-one health coaching and more, the program provides employees with resources to reach their unique wellness goals.
Great benefits! Lots of PTO. Excellent dental and vision. $10 co pays are great.
I am a current per-diem employee at Sharp and I don’t receive benefits but I have reviewed the benefit options online and they seem to have some of the best benefits out there.
The Dental benefits are the best I've ever seen. They only offer an HMO which is fine if y don't need to see physicians from other hospital systems.
The PTO is the best. The worst thing is how long it takes to climb up the benefits scale.
Great benefits package. Employee premiums are the lowest and the plans are extremely rich. Lots of PTO 25 days a year to start.
Good benefits package. No holiday time off, must use PTO
PTO is probably the lowest I’ve had. Total of 25 days to start, but six forced holidays come out of that bank for all non-clinical/essential employees, so your “vacation” days are getting used up for Memorial and Labor days and the like. Good health insurance, though you must join a Sharp medical group, and their own health plan struggles with their customer service and access. Also awkward if you have a complaint or sensitive concern that you need addressed by the health plan and effectively have to deal with coworkers you might be having a meeting with in an hour. But it’s super cheap (as it probably should be when you are the financial recipient of the premiums and the copays). Pay seems lower than similar orgs in the county, even after recent adjustments were made to be more competitive and to match the nursing increases. Leadership has indicated this is justified because of people’s willingness to take lower pay to live in San Diego, but if other local companies are higher, not sure if that’s a valid reason to keep wages lower. Very good retirement match, and it’s nice to be able to dictate the amount as it fits your lifestyle. Misc: Maternity and paternity leave only as it is allowed under FMLA; education and professional development benefits are great if you have a leadership line willing to let you use it, if not, it’s just there to taunt you.
Great health benefits and discounts
