Does anyone know the current sign-on bonus at HCA hospitals?

  1. My neighbor e - mailed me that she has accepted an offer with an HCA hospital and said the HR mgr. said their bonus was $4,000.

    I emailed her back that all HCA's
    have given $5,000 sign on bonuses ...that for 6-7 years, I have always heard that
    5,000 was their standard bonus.

    Is she getting gypped??

    if i'm thinking correctly, a friend of mine who works at a HCA hospital got a $2,000 sign on bonus. 4 or 5000 sounds really nice!!!!

    I worked for a (horrible) HCA hospital in 2001. I got $1,500. for a one year commitment, but no amount of money would have been worth that experience!

    depends on your commitment and FTE as to the bonus you will get. HCA hospital I know of offers $5000. for fulltime (0.9 FTE) for 2 years if I remember correctly. Plus moving expenses in many cases. I should know; I have two friends who took advantage of this.

    I think it depends on the hospital. A local HCA is currently offering 6,000. I'm not sure about the commitment.

    HCA's are usually for one year..
    I know of hospitals in southern Arizona and Texas and California
    are offering $20,000 and $30, 000 for 3 year committment.s

    $10,000 for each year.....Lots of foreign nurses snatching up those offers....

    And HCA gives a $4-5,000 annual retention bonus to their FT employees too , as I understand it.

    I used to work for an HCA hospital. I never did get a sign on bonus because I started working there before they initiated the bonus. The bonuses offered at that hospital were $1500-2000.
    That was a year or so ago maybe it went up.

    I think, though, if the sign on bonus is really high something must be wrong. Obvisiously the can not keep their help.

    I currently work for an HCA hospital in middle management. I think the bonuses you speak of depend on the location and need of the particular area. We have sign on bonuses here, but they fluctuate, and I don't know of any retention bonuses. It must be regional.
