Englewood Health ups minimum wage to $15/hour

Englewood Health, a health system comprised of Englewood Hospital and the Englewood Health Physician Network, announced Friday it has increased its minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Employees will be eligible for the increase by the end of the year, it said.

“We are delighted to offer this significant increase to many of our valuable employees,” Warren Geller, CEO and president of Englewood Health, said. “The decision to increase our minimum wage is a reflection of the important work that our frontline and support staff do for our patients and community every day and our commitment to being an employer of choice.”

This move comes just one day after the New Jersey Senate and Assembly passed a $15 per hour phased-in minimum wage bill in Trenton, paving the way for the bill to become law later this year.
