Child Development : SRHS Ida Thompson Child Development Program
The Child Development Program is located in the Pinewood Resource Center on the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System campus at the corner of Pine Street and McCravy Drive. The hours of operation are 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. The center serves children from age three (3) months to twelve (12) years of age. Care is provided year-round, Monday through Friday. Holiday and weekend care is available according to need. The Child Development Program is open during inclement weather.
In order to serve the healthcare system most effectively, these priorities for acceptance are followed:
PRIORITY I: Children of parents whose employment status is full time and their working hours cover more than one (1) shift or hours when other child care facilities are not typically providing service.
PRIORITY II: Children of parents who employment status is full time and already have a child enrolled in the program on a full time basis.
PRIORITY III: Children of parents whose employment status is full time on first shift.
PRIORITY IV: Children of parents whose employment status is part time or PRN and who desire center services on a full time basis. (This space may have to be forfeited if an employee whose status is full time is waiting. Thirty (30) days notice should be given.)
Part time enrollment is also available for children of hospital employees. This is handled on a week-by-week basis or as space is available.
When groups are filled to capacity, a waiting list is maintained. Please contact the center or refer to SRHS Policy # IM1000.604 for more specific information.
Any employee may join the Spartanburg Regional Federal Credit Union. The Credit Union encourages savings and offers low-interest loans. Payroll deductions for both savings and loans are available.
Dental Insurance Plans
The two options for dental coverage at Spartanburg Regional:
- Preventive Plan
- Comprehensive Plan
The main difference between the two plans is the types of services covered and the coinsurance or copay for each type of service.
Employees may participate in the healthcare system’s deferred compensation program. This is a way to save current income for retirement without paying taxes until the contributions are withdrawn.
For more information, contact Human Resources.
Short-Term Disability Coverage
Spartanburg Regional provides employees a short-term disability (STD) plan. The plan is provided at no cost to you - Spartanburg Regional pay the entire cost of this program.
Supplemental Short-Term Disability
You also have the option of purchasing supplemental STD coverage.
Long-Term Disability Coverage
In the event that you are totally disabled, the SRHS long-term disability (LTD) benefit will provide you with income protection to help protect you and your family. (Certain pre-existing condition restrictions may apply.) The cost of your coverage is paid in full by Spartanburg Regional.
Any employee who has completed six months of full-time or part-time service, and is eligible for benefits, may apply for a limited amount of money to pay tuition expenses for instruction during off duty hours. The course of study must be accredited and must be related to your present job, or qualify you for another job in the healthcare system. Employees should contact Human Resources prior to beginning their course of study.
Each employee who receives tuition reimbursement must agree to remain employed by Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System for a designated timeframe dependent upon the amount of money received while participating in Educational Assistance. Employees who leave the healthcare system before this time must pay back their reimbursement expenses on a pro-rated basis.
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is an employer-sponsored program that provides free, confidential, professional assistance to help employees and their families resolve problems that affect their personal lives or their ability to perform their jobs. The request for assistance may come directly from an employee or an employee’s family member. If a referral outside of the EAP is necessary, efforts will be made to utilize employee medical benefits or keep cost to a minimum.
EAP services include counseling for a wide-range of problems such as: marital problems, family discord, alcohol/drug abuse, grief, depression, stress management, parenting difficulties and financial worry.
Employees may contact EAP at 1-866-219-2464.
Employee Health Assessments
All employees must have a pre-placement Health Assessment following the job offer and prior to beginning Orientation. The assessment consists of a health history, observed drug screening and routine tests to ensure that you are physically able to do your job.
There is no cost to you for this evaluation. You may be requested to have other examinations at any time during your employment if the tests are for your protection and the protection of others.
Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System provides evaluation and first aid through Employee Occupational Health Services for employees who become ill while at work. An employee who becomes ill on the job should first see their supervisor for permission to leave the work area to seek first aid. Occupational Health will evaluate the illness and make a recommendation to send the employee home or back to work.
There may be times when the nurse who examines the employee may advise a visit to a physician. The services of a physician are not included in Employee Occupational Health Services and the employee is responsible for their choice of physician and professional charges.
Employees may be restricted from duty due to certain illnesses, exposure to certain communicable diseases, or injuries as determined by Employee Occupational Health Services.
Family Medical Leave
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 provides up to 12 weeks of job protected leave to eligible employees for certain family and medical reasons. Employees are eligible if they have worked for Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System for one year and for 1,250 hours over the previous 12 months.
Reasons for taking leave:
- To care for the employee’s child after birth or placement for adoption or foster care
- To care for the employee’s spouse, son, daughter or parent, who has a serious health condition
- For a serious health condition that makes the employee unable to perform their job.
- At the employee’s or employer’s option, certain kinds of paid leave may be substituted for unpaid leave. Paid time off and sick bank continue accruing while under 12 weeks of FMLA.
The employee may be required to provide advance leave notice and certification. Taking of leave may be denied if requirements are not met. The FMLA ordinarily requires that the employee must provide 30 days advance notice when the leave is foreseeable.
Flexible Spending Accounts
Spartanburg Regional offers you the opportunity to take advantage of tax savings available from two flexible spending accounts. You can deposit pre-tax dollars in your Health Care Spending Account and/or Dependent Care Spending Account.
Health Care Spending Account
You can deposit up to $5,000 a year in your Health Care Spending Account. You can use the tax-free money in your account to reimburse yourself for:
- Eligible expenses not paid by your medical and dental coverage, and
- Out-of-pocket expenses, such as deductibles and copays.
Dependent Care Spending Account
You can deposit up to $5,000 (or $2,500 if you and your spouse file separate income tax returns) in your Dependent Care Spending Account. This account lets you set aside money to pay dependent care expenses that are necessary in order for you to work or attend school full-time.
Employees are encouraged to serve on juries when possible. An employee, who is on stand-by for current Jury Duty and is excused for a portion of the day, must report to work during regular, scheduled hours. After serving, you may accept your regular healthcare system pay and jury pay.
Leaves of Absence
The following types of leaves may be available to Spartanburg Regional employees:
Medical Leaves (including):
- Family leave
- Short-term disability leave
- Long-term disability leave
- Worker's Compensation leave
- Jury Duty
- Military Leave
Spartanburg Regional's life insurance provides important financial protection for you and your survivors. Basic life coverage of one times your base salary (that is fully paid by Spartanburg Regional) is automatically provided to you.
Supplemental Employee Life
You have the option of purchasing additional life insurance for yourself, up to a specified maximum.
Accidental Death and Dismemberment
You have the option of purchasing accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance. AD&D protection pays the full benefit amount if you die as a result of an accident, and will pay a portion of the benefit if you suffer a serious accident resulting in dismemberment, depending on the nature of your injury.
Dependent Life Coverage
Spartanburg Regional also offers you the opportunity to purchase dependent life coverage. Dependent life insurance pays a lump-sum benefit to you if your spouse or a dependent child dies. You may also purchase AD&D coverage on your spouse.
Medical Insurance Plans
Spartanburg Regional offers three medical plans from which to choose, plus the opportunity to waive coverage if you qualify.
Regional Choice Plan
The Regional Choice plan is a consumer driven health plan which functions as a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan. A PPO is a network made up of physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers who have agreed to provide their services to our employees at negotiated, reduced rates.
You have a special account provided by Spartanburg Regional to help pay for covered expenses. Preventive care, such as routine physicals, is covered at no charge to you as long as you seek services in the RHP Network. You have the freedom to choose any physician or hospital whenever you seek medical treatment. However, if you choose an RHP provider, you will receive a higher level of benefit.
Regional Plus Plan
The Regional Plus plan is a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan. This plan offers lower deductibles, higher coverage amounts, flat dollar copays, and a lower annual out of pocket maximum.
The Regional Basic plan is an Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO) plan. An EPO is a network of physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers similar to a PPO. However, to be covered, all care - other than for serious or life-threatening injuries or illnesses - must be provided by an EPO network provider.
With all three medical plans, if you seek treatment in Spartanburg County, you must use an RHP provider or the expenses will not be covered.
Paid Time Off
Full-time and regularly scheduled part-time (at least 20 hours per week) employees who are qualified for benefits are eligible for Paid Time Off (PTO). Temporary and PRN employees do not qualify for PTO.
Employees are eligible to use PTO during the first pay period after successfully completing the 90-calendar day probationary period. If an employee terminates before the 90-day probationary period is completed, they are not eligible to be paid PTO hours.
PTO hours may be used at the employee’s discretion for time away from work as requested and approved by the supervisor. PTO may be used for vacation time, holidays, personal time, personal or family illness/emergency or bereavement leave for a death in the immediate family.
The maximum PTO time which can be accrued is 480 hours for full-time employees and 176 hours for part-time employees. Once you have reached your total maximum accrual, you will not accumulate any additional PTO until you take time off
Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System recognizes five (5) designated holidays:
- New Year’s Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
If your department is closed due to the observance of a designated holiday, PTO (if an hourly employee) may be used to cover that day. All salaried employees must use available PTO unless scheduled time is approved in advance by their vice president. An employee who has not yet completed a 90-day probationary period may borrow PTO in advance to cover the designated closing.
Current employees may not borrow against future PTO to cover a holiday. If they do not have accrued hours of PTO to cover that day, they will take the time off without pay.
The healthcare system provides free parking for employees. Security officers are on duty 24 hours a day at the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System and Spartanburg Hospital for Restorative Care campuses to escort employees to their cars, if necessary, or help employees start their cars.
Please park only in areas designated for employee parking. Parking regulations are strictly enforced, and security officers are authorized to issue tickets, which must be paid to avoid arrest. Improperly parked cars may be towed away at the owner’s expense.
Employees are not allowed to park in patient or visitor parking areas.
Prescription Drug Coverage
When you elect medical coverage, you are automatically covered under the prescription drug plan based on your medical plan election. The coverage allows you to fill your prescriptions at participating retail pharmacies, as well as through a mail order program.
When you have a prescription filled, you pay a copay or coinsurance amount, depending on the medical plan you elected. The amount you pay also is based on what type of drug you choose. You have the opportunity to lower the amount you pay by choosing a generic or a preferred brand name drug.
Mail Order Program
When you use the mail order program, a 90-day supply of your medication will be delivered directly to your home. This gives you access to larger quantities of maintenance drugs at a discount. Again, the amount depends on the medical plan and the type of drug that you choose.
Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System’s retirement program is part of the South Carolina Retirement System (SCRS). Employees who join the retirement system contribute a portion of their total income. SRHS also contributes to the South Carolina Retirement System. The longer you participate in the retirement program, the more income you will receive when you retire. To become vested, you must be a contributing member of the Retirement System for five years.
Not all employees are required to participate in the retirement program. Some nursing service and technical personnel may choose not to participate. Once you join, you cannot withdraw your money until you leave the healthcare system. If you leave before you reach retirement age, the amount you contributed, plus interest may be refunded after you file a refund form with SCRS.
