Baptist Health Care seeks to provide a work environment that includes benefits that ensure security and provide many of the amenities of life. Our benefits program is designed to provide you and your family with benefit solutions to help you stay healthy, feel secure and maintain a work/life balance. Baptist Health Care shares the cost of some benefits with you and provides voluntary benefits if you choose to enroll. The benefit costs you are responsible for are automatically deducted from your paycheck, either before or after taxes are calculated.
