Whether from a current employee or a job candidate, the questions we hear most often involve benefits. At Roger Williams Medical Center, we offer a competitive and comprehensive range of benefits-from holiday time off to health, dental, life insurance and long term disability; to a paid time off program and paid holidays; to tuition reimbursement; to mobile phone discounts-to meet a wide variety of employee circumstances and needs.

As you learn more about our benefits program, please keep in mind that-for every organization-benefits are subject to change because of regulatory laws, market conditions and changes in staffing requirements to fulfill mission. Ultimately, our goal is to remain competitive so that we continue to attract the best candidates and provide the best care.
