For the second straight year, Saint Luke’s Health System has announced an increase to its minimum wage.

Saint Luke’s will pay its frontline employees a minimum of $17.50 per hour, effective the first pay period in November.

The health system announced a minimum-wage increase to $15 an hour last November.

Saint Luke’s Health System President and CEO Dr. Melinda L. Estes also announced a $2,000 “thank you” bonus for all employees to be paid by early December “in recognition of their hard work and commitment as we’ve managed through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
