Perks and Programs

We asked Atlantic Health System to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • On-Site Childcare: We know reliable, affordable child care is critical to working parents so we provide on-site daycare and early childhood education either on-site or nearby at significantly discounted rates. We partner with a major national child care center to provide children with a safe, fun place to go. Parents can stop by and visit with their children throughout the day. Any Atlantic Health System team member can use this child care service for their children or grandchildren, ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. In addition, we also offer backup child care for planned needs or last minute emergencies such as school closings, when the regular caregiver is ill or on vacation, to accommodate flexible work schedules, or whatever child care need arises. Our backup care options are flexible and can be at an on-site center or at home.
  • Birthday Card Celebrations: We celebrate birthdays by sending a birthday card home with a gift card to our team members to use at our on-site cafeterias and cafes. Our birthday cards are exclusive to Atlantic Health System and were designed by team members’ children or grandchildren who participated a AHS Birthday Card Contest by creating the artwork for birthday greeting cards. 12 winners were selected so each month we send out a different card. Additionally, sets of these greeting cards are sold through our Team Store with proceeds going to our Employee Relief Fund.
  • Career Coaching Program: Every team member has access to our suite of more than 40 in-house Career Coaches to help explore options to guide career and educational decisions, options and goals. We bring personal development to a new level. Our Career Coaching program is a great way to help team members make career decisions, establish professional goals, create and execute plans, and overcome obstacles. Whether team members are looking to launch a new career here at Atlantic Health System or want to explore other roles within the system, our career coaches help our team members discover their true passion and potential.
  • Career Readiness Program: Our Career Readiness Program was built to help team members gain life management and computer skills, further their education and expand their professional opportunities within our system. Aimed at those who do not have a college-level education yet, we partner with a local community college to offer a variety of classes and instructors to earn college credits. The Career Readiness Program brings education directly to the work site. Team members can learn during regular work hours, develop life skills to build self-confidence, and obtain a solid foundation of new competencies needed to prepare for their future.
  • CEO Food for Thought: Our CEO, Brian Gragnolati, hosts regular small group Food for Thought breakfast and lunch sessions with team members. Open to any team member, these small sessions allow each team member the chance to be seen and heard by the CEO and to engage in conversation about themselves, our company, our industry or just life in general. Led without an agenda, team members actively drive the conversation. These much sought after sessions provide a level of connection with the CEO not often found in other large companies.
  • Family and Friends Movie Night: Our popular monthly family movie nights bring our family and friends together outside of work to enjoy a movie under the stars. Held at various local parks during spring, summer and fall, families can enjoy games, music and snacks before the movie. We also let our team members choose which movie they are going to watch by hosting an online poll in the weeks leading up to the show.
  • CONCERN: We are committed to caring for the caregivers. CONCERN Behavioral and Management Solutions supports Atlantic Health System team members in a number of ways, including confidential short-term, solution-focused counseling with licensed professional therapists. This is offered to team members and their immediate family members at no charge. Wellness training on topics such as stress, self-care, conflict management and emotional intelligence are provided routinely and CONCERN counselors are available to respond to any critical incidents that may occur.
  • Day in Your Shoes: Our leaders regularly spend “A Day in Your Shoes,” which is a day leaders shadow team members and work alongside them in all departments within the hospital. This gives our team members the opportunity to spend time with leadership and showcase the exceptional work being done throughout our system in various areas. Our team members love working alongside leadership, while our leaders love learning more about the inner workings of each area. This also gives leaders and team members an opportunity to develop innovative ideas to help improve processes. Our leaders have spent days helping transport patients, delivering food, working in our on-site pharmacy and so much more.
  • Employee Relief Fund: We know that sometimes the unexpected happens and we want to make sure we can provide some relief to our team members. Our Atlantic Health System Employee Relief Fund is a resource to help meet unexpected financial needs. Team members who have faced significant hardships or tragedies beyond their control can use this financial grant to restore basic human needs such as food, clothing or shelter.
  • On-site Car Wash: Our team members have access to an environmentally friendly, on-site car detailing and hand wash. Held at various locations across the system several times a month, team members can schedule an appointment online at a time that is convenient for them. Cars can be dropped off and picked up at times that are convenient for their schedule. Using steam technology and environmentally friendly cleaning products, car seat and booster seat cleaning is also available. Our team members love this option since it saves time by not having to do this errand during their time off.
