Stormont Vail Health is a community-minded organization that believes its employees deserve to make good wages, be recognized for doing more than what’s expected, and be encouraged to grow and develop professionally.
A few highlights of working for Stormont Vail Health include:
- A well-powered wage — No matter the role or the person’s background, every employee in the organization starts at or above the current living wage for our region (in 2020, this was $12.45). This is an incredible starting salary for a first job without any experience (including high school students!).

Team members often can get 100% of their continuing education credits through this program, at no cost. Many employees work for Stormont Vail for years, moving up into different types of positions within the organization as they gain new skills and qualify for other types of careers.

- Scholarship programs — Stormont Vail partners with the Kansas Board of Regents to offer scholarships for registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs).
- Employee recognition — Stormont Vail encourages a culture where employees strive to create a positive experience for every patient and their families. Monthly, colleagues, patients and administrators nominate and recognize employees with awards that celebrate the little things employees do daily that go “above and beyond.”
- Wellness programs — Employees are encouraged and rewarded for taking care of their health, including reduced rates on health insurance and cash incentives for meeting specific standards, such as not smoking or having a healthy body mass index (BMI).
