Perks and Programs

We asked NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Employee Appreciation Days: Every year, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital hosts themed Employee Appreciation Days at each of our campuses, providing NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital’s management team the opportunity to say thank you to the staff for their commitment to putting patients first. On Employee Appreciation Days, meals following a theme are served by managers and other leaders at local parks or onsite while a DJ and other entertainment is provided. This past year, the theme was Hawaii and employees were surprised by a flash mob dance. Previous themes include Parisian, Route 66, and Moroccan. Employees celebrating 10 or 15 years of service are recognized at local receptions. Employees with 20 or more years of service are celebrated at themed galas attended by senior leaders at landmark hotels in New York City.
  • NYP Everyday Amazing: NYP Everyday Amazing is an online, Hospital-wide program that allows co-workers to easily recognize each other in different ways. It includes opportunities to nominate and recognize co-workers for awards, and offers a wide array of gift choices, as well as interactive features, including a mobile app and social media platform. This past year, the platform issued nearly 5,500 awards and 49,000 e-cards. Furthermore, employees receive a recognition yearbook when they are approaching service milestone anniversaries and retirement. The Service Milestone Yearbook includes personal comments and photos from leaders and colleagues at work celebrating the friendships, relationships, and successes employees have experienced during their time at the Hospital.
  • Employee Housing: NewYork-Presbyterian owns and leases 1,400+ residential apartments near the hospital on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and 950+ residential apartments near our locations in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. These convenient sites help our full time employees beat the commute and save time and money when travelling to work.
  • NYPBeHealthy & Wellbeing Program: This program engages our employees in their own wellbeing by providing the resources and tools to support them in achieving their individual health goals. Confidential and complimentary on-site wellbeing coaching, annual biometric screening and assessments, on-site yoga classes, confidential counseling, and discounts with online farmers markets are just some of the many resources available. NYPBeHealthy also encourages participation from thousands of employees in annual team-based competitions like the Steps Challenge and the Maintain Don’t Gain Challenge. As part of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital’s commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles for patients and employees, the Hospital is phasing out the sale and serving of sugar-sweetened beverages at all of our locations.
  • Schwartz Rounds: Schwartz Rounds are a multidisciplinary forum hosted at all NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital locations that provides support to clinical and non-clinical employees in dealing with complex emotional and social issues related to caring for patients. Topics covered include: Managing team conflict around how to treat a patient, delivering bad news, caring for a colleague, and discrimination we encounter.
  • Engaging Staff 24/7: The fluid nature of 24/7 hospital operations creates challenges unlike ordinary businesses. Patient care does not stop at 5:00pm or on weekends; the professional development and HR needs of our staff also cannot be confined to prescribed hours. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital provides HR services, including staff development and recognition events to staff around the clock. Dedicated members of the HR team focus, supports and advocates for the needs of staff working evening and overnight shifts.
  • LGBT Task Force: As New Yorkers, we live in a highly diverse community, and this is reflected in our patient population. Similarly, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is committed to a culture of diversity and inclusiveness across our workforce. Working with people representing diverse backgrounds, races, religions, sexual orientation, and ways of life, contributes to a more creative and vibrant environment, and ultimately, enables us take better care of our patients and families. In support of our commitment, and, as a recently named leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality by the Human Rights Campaign, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital launched a training module, approved by the Human Rights Campaign, that focuses on the importance of creating a more welcoming, inclusive and LGBT-sensitive health care environment.
  • Emerging Leadership Council: The Emerging Leadership Council (ELC) is dedicated to providing a networking and support structure to young professionals in the early stages of their careers at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Membership and participation offers opportunities such as Breakfast with Senior Leaders, Speed Networking with Senior Leaders, Ask a Leader Anything Lunches and targeted professional development series. Targeted development series topics include Breaking Bias, Managing Upwards, and Interviewing Tips and Strategies.
  • Volunteer Opportunities: NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is committed to improving the health and well-being of the communities we serve in New York City and Westchester County. Employees have many opportunities to give back outside of their day-to-day job duties, either within NewYork-Presbyterian or in the local neighborhoods. Together, employees host annual proms at the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital and the Komansky Center for Children’s Health for teenage patients, dress up to visit patients on Halloween, provide taxi drivers and their families free health screenings, offer shadowing opportunities for students enrolled in local middle schools and high schools, recover surplus and no-longer-needed medical supplies, and serve meals at local shelters. These activities or programs are sponsored by NewYork-Presbyterian.
  • Patient Centered Fridays: Launched in January 2008 as Patient Safety Fridays®, Patient Centered Fridays are a Hospital-wide initiative that cultivate a culture of safety and education while reinforcing our mission of putting patients first. Every Friday, senior leadership, department heads, and staff gather to present a structured curriculum around various issues in quality and safety — some clinical, some environmental. These gatherings encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and strengthen professional networks throughout NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

Applicants shouldn’t be discouraged if a position doesn’t work out right away as many of our current employees have applied more than once before getting hired.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

To provide the highest quality of care to over 2 million patients annually and take on some of the most complex patient cases from around the world, our hospital has many highly specialized roles. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports healthcare occupations are projected to increase 19% between 2014 and 2024, which is significantly faster than the 7% average growth for all occupations. This growth is attributed to a number of factors including: the growing aging population and an increased focus on preventative care. Nurses, especially Advance Practice Nurses, Physician Assistants, Information Security Analysts, Health Information Management professionals, Laboratory Technologists, and Radiation Therapists are some roles that will be a focus for our hospital this coming year.
