The health system offers care solutions to help you balance the demands of family with your other commitments. Through our partnership with Bright Horizons, benefits-eligible employees can find a child-care center, in-home caregiver, experienced tutor, back-up care and more.

This benefit is available only in Kansas City, including Olathe Health.

When you have a disruption in family care, you won’t have to skip a beat. Back-up care is available to support you for many needs including:

  • Your child’s school is closed.
  • The sitter is on vacation.
  • Mom or Dad needs support in their home.
  • Your child is mildly ill and can’t attend school or child care.
  • Your 5-18-year-old needs additional tutoring in any subject.

Benefit-eligible employees can use up to 10 days of back-up care per year. For in-home care, there is a 4-hour minimum up and a 10-hour maximum.

  • $15 per child or a maximum of $25 per family for use of center-based child care.
  • $6 per hour for in-home care services for any age, from children through elders.
  • $15 for up to 4 hours of virtual tutoring.
