Some Michigan Hospitals Boosting Minimum Wage

Two Michigan hospital systems raise minimum wage to $15 to fill job openings

November 4, 2020

Some of Michigan’s minimum wage hospital workers received pay increases this month when two of the state’s largest hospital systems set a new $15 per hour rate, according to an article on the Bridge Michigan website.

The move by Henry Ford Health System and Trinity Health reflects increased competition for entry-level workers during a resurgence in COVID-19 hospitalizations.

At Detroit-based Henry Ford, 3,000 of its 33,000 workers — including some who work directly with patients — received a pay boost Oct. 11. Among them were workers who had been earning $11 per hour.

Trinity Health raised the minimum wage for an estimated 2,100 full- and part-time workers at Mercy Health hospitals in West Michigan and the St. Joseph Mercy Health System in southeast Michigan.

According to an earlier Bridge Michigan article, hospital executives at Beaumont Health and the Henry Ford Health System received bonuses this March shortly before laying off thousands of workers and asking the federal government for a bailout.
