Employee Crisis Fund
The Employee Crisis Fund provides funds to employees of Memorial Hospital facing a sudden and urgent situation. Assistance from the fund results in a significant turning point or resolves the crisis. If you are a Memorial employee and would like to apply, please see below. The fund is supported by Memorial employees who give to the fund through our employee giving program, SHINE. If you would like to give to the fund please click here or call Harrison Kajdan at 865-3048.
In order to apply for assistance, you must meet the criteria:
• Employee must have been employed by Memorial full time or PT +20 for at least 90 days, and
• Employee must have successfully completed probationary period, and have no disciplinary actions within the last 12 months or currently under investigation within any major area of concern, and have not submitted resignation or retirement, and
• Situation must be a naturally occurring emergency or catastrophe (fire, flood, tornado, etc) or unavoidable personal emergency (critical illness, unexpected financial loss such as burglary, etc).
The crisis should NOT be a chronic situation of a long duration or a frequent occurrence.
Assistance will be provided by paying bills directly, providing vouchers, etc. Direct payment to the employee is not allowed. We also cannot pay credit card or medical bills. Employees employed 3-6 months are eligible to receive a maximum award of up to $250. Employees employed for 6+ months are eligible to receive a maximum award of up to $500. Employees who have received assistance in the past will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
You will be required to upload your most recent pay stub and copy of bill needing assistance as well as review your application with your supervisor. If you have any questions, please contact Harrison Kajdan at 865-3048 or email@example.com.
