Kansas City Business Journal: Saint Luke’s raises minimum wage again, plans $2,000 bonus

October 13, 2021

Front-line employees at Saint Luke’s Health System will start making $17.50 an hour starting next month, and a month later all full-time workers will get a $2,000 “thank you” bonus.

It’s the second time in less than a year that the Kansas City-based system has raised its minimum wage. In November 2020, Saint Luke’s increased hourly employees’ minimum salary to $15 and said then that the change will be permanent. The hospital also said at the time that the raise wouldn’t come with a reduction in work hours or affect eligibility for merit increases.

In announcing the new rate in a Tuesday release, Saint Luke’s said it bumped pay “to express appreciation and reward (employees) for their hard work, dedication and sacrifice” as they cared for patients during the pandemic.
