Our commitment to the health of our patients and to our employees is a part of everything we do. At John Muir Health, taking care of the environment around us is as important as taking care of the people who walk through our doors.

To help promote a healthy environment, we offer a variety of benefits to encourage employees to choose alternative methods of transportation to and from work.

Recognized by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U. S. Department of Transportation as one of the best commuter workplaces in the nation, our goal is to help reduce traffic and air pollution by providing employees with these benefits.

  • Subsidized BART and bus tickets
  • Subsidized carpool and vanpool programs

  • Taxi service to and from the BART station for employees
  • Incentives are offered to employees taking commute alternatives as well as to employees who use designated off-site parking.
  • Designated bike racks and lockers are available for employees who choose to bike commute.
  • Employees are also eligible for partial reimbursement of other applicable commute-appropriate transit passes, such as WHEELS from the Tri-Valley to Walnut Creek, Solano BART Express from Vacaville, BayLink from Vallejo/Benicia to BART and other transit options such as Amtrak.

At John Muir Health we believe our success is your success. We want to ensure that all the hard work and achievements of our employees pay off — and that means your retirement should be as stress-free and financially secure as possible.

To reward the service and dedication our employees show us and the community we care for, we offer comprehensive retirement and post-retirement benefits. These benefits include:

  • Early Retiree Medical Benefits (age 55 - 65)
  • Retiree Health Savings Plan Benefits (for retirement after age 65)
  • Tax Sheltered Annuity (403b Plan) with employer matching contribution

We value the experience that comes with age and encourage our older employees to continue providing us with the talent we need to thrive as an organization. We offer reduced, flexible work schedules to employees who are retired or retirement-eligible but who still want to work. For more information, contact human resources.

Retiree Health Savings Plan Benefit

Through this benefit plan, John Muir Health makes contributions to an account that an employee can use to pay for health care expenses once they have retired. The longer the employee stays with John Muir Health, the more contributions to his or her account. This program complements other John Muir Health benefits the employee has, including the Pension Plan and 403(b) savings plan account.


At John Muir Health, we’re committed to your potential, both personally and professionally. When you join our team, you have access to a wide array of resources and benefits designed to help you reach your career goals. These

Specialty Nurse Training Program

When you’re part of the John Muir Health team, we want you to get the most out of your career. We also want you to get the most out of your life outside of work. Because of that, we’re committed to helping you achieve a balance between the two.

Time Away From Work

Everyone needs a break to relax and enjoy free time away from the rigors of work. And sometimes there is no getting around having to take some time off to address your own personal or family responsibilities.
