Overview and Philosophy

Welcome to the Human Resources Benefits Website!

This website aims to improve efficiency and overall response time. Within the Benefits website, you will find easy access to important information and forms to assist you in making choices about your health plans and other benefits available to staff in one central location.


University Hospital offers a comprehensive benefits package with a wide variety of benefit choices. New hires are introduced to the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) by benefits staff during New Hire Orientation. There is a 2 month waiting period for SHBP benefits to begin.

Each year, the Human Resources Department Benefits Services Office conducts an annual Open Enrollment period for the State Health Benefits Plan (SHBP) during the month of October, which allows employees to make changes in their existing coverage. However, our employees are able to make changes, for themselves or their dependents within 60 days of any qualifying life event throughout the year.

Our Open Enrollment Benefits Fair is a great opportunity for our employees to review their health plans and supplemental benefits that are available and meet their Benefits staff. We also offer Brown Bag Sessions on important topics of interest to our employees.

We encourage you to take advantage of the resources included in the Benefits website and let us know how to make it even more useful.

The Benefits website serves as a general guide for eligible employees, communicating the hospital’s Benefits Programs and should not be construed to represent an employment contract or other form of a legal contract. Refer to plan descriptions for detailed information.


The University Hospital provides an excellent and very competitive benefits package for their employees that is a valuable part of each employee’s total compensation. The Department of Human Resources is dedicated to communicating these benefits to you in a timely and informative manner.

The elements of the hospital’s Total Rewards programs are competitive compensation, comprehensive benefits, learning and organizational development and career opportunities.

Total Rewards collectively define the hospital’s investment in our employees. We strive to help our employees achieve success in their work life.
