Brigham and Women’s Hospital offers a comprehensive Flexible Benefit Program, including pre-tax deductions designed to truly benefit our employees:

You can read a summary of each benefit below.

Competitive compensation

As one of the nation's most distinguished hospitals, it is only proper that we offer the kinds of salaries you'd expect from a healthcare leader. While salaries vary from position to position, they are always competitive with similar positions in other area hospitals, and in many cases, they exceed those of area hospitals.

Generous paid time-off program

BWH's unique Benefit Time program is a flexible paid time-off program giving you up to 29 days off every year — and 33 days off after 7 years of employment. This includes vacation, holidays, and sick time. You also accrue 5 days a year into an extended sick leave bank. This time is available to you should you become ill and need more than five days off.

You may also purchase additional insurance coverage for yourself and your dependents.
