Benefits to help you take care of you this spring

To care for patients, co-workers and your family, you must first take care of yourself. Revive your body, mind and spirit this spring with some of the many benefits offered by the health system.


Do you face challenges with work-life balance or relationship well-being? Is stress, pain or a difficult experience getting in the way of your self-care? Does anxiety or depression prevent you from taking care of you? It’s OK to ask for help.

The health system’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is designed to support you with completely free and confidential emotional and behavioral health services. EAP is available to all employees and their household members including children, regardless of benefits eligibility.

To ensure confidentiality, EAP services are provided by an external partner, ComPsych, who specializes in meeting your unique needs as a healthcare worker. The health system will have no record of who seeks help from EAP. These mental health resources are available anytime, day or night, and anywhere, by phone or online. Whenever and wherever you need help, EAP is here for you.

Free and confidential counseling:

  • Eight free professional counseling sessions per issue for you and your household members (including children), either in person or by phone call, video meeting or private text
  • Support for any emotional or behavioral health issue, including common concerns like stress management, relationship or workplace conflict, family or housing needs, major illness or injury, anxiety or depression, grief or loss, trauma or PTSD, and substance abuse
  • Information, referrals and resources for ongoing treatment if the need for long-term counseling arises

Free and confidential self-help resources:

  • Computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CCBT), an evidence-based self-help technique presented through online interactive modules
  • Self-improvement tools and solutions for everyday issues to help you be your best at home and at work
  • Information, referrals and resources to help you balance work-life situations, such as child or elder care, buying or selling a home, and other major stressors

EAP is here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Taking time away from work is vital for your health and well-being. We encourage you to use paid time off (PTO) to rest and renew. That’s why the health system provides paid time off for eligible full-time and part-time employees. Our program, detailed on the PTO and Holidays page, is designed with flexibility to meet your need for paid time off, regardless of the reason.
