At CoxHealth, we know our people are the key to our success.

Our investment in these programs, benefits and resources is an investment in you.


CoxHealth is rolling out a new employee recognition program that lets staff members choose their rewards for outstanding performance, service anniversaries and day-to-day recognition. CoxHealth Choice Rewards empowers leaders to recognize staff and it allows staff members to choose from a catalog of prizes, from logo items to jewelry and appliances. See an introduction from our senior leaders here:


Employee Recognition Program is a formal employee recognition program based on our PARTNERS values:Positive Attitude
, Accountable
, Responsive
, Teamwork
, No Excuses
, Exemplary
, Responsible
, Service

The PARTNERS Spirit award is recognition for an employee, volunteer or student who has made a significant contribution to the benefit of CoxHealth, an individual or the community.


This award includes public recognition featuring a video presentation at annual Employee Recognition Banquet. The award includes a trip, a cash incentive, a crystal gift and other recognition for those PARTNERS Spirit award winners who demonstrated extraordinary service or intervention for a patient, family or co-worker during the past year.


The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses was created to say thank you to the nurses deserving of our respect and recognition for the education, training, skill and compassion put into their work every day.


Complete a nomination form to celebrate those nurses who make a difference through caring, leadership, and community involvement. The form may be copied and distributed to anyone who expresses appreciation for nurses.


Here, we hire the best. That’s why we work so hard to keep the best. All our employees are able to transfer to alternate positions within CoxHealth, based on position availability and their qualifications. We also offer a wide variety of resources dedicated to helping our employees grow in their careers and feel satisfied in their work.

Our retention project manager works with administration and departmental leadership on how to best retain staff. The retention project manager is also available to all staff for confidential discussion, strategizing and problem solving.

Clinical ladders for certain allied health professional careers, including nursing and radiology, offer professional staff several options for career advancement.

Senior administration hosts regular Employee Forums to keep employee partners informed about financial, business and regulatory developments. There is also time for on-the-spot employee questions for administrators.

Quarterly meetings are scheduled with EC2 (the Employee Communication Council) and CoxHealth senior leadership. Comprised of all departmental staff Champions, these communication sessions further reinforce our commitment to be transparent with all employee partners and keep our staff informed.

Connect Daily is our daily email newsletter sent to all employees. It’s full of need-to-know information about CoxHealth, from Pharmacy order changes to IT downtimes and CMN Hospitals fundraisers.

Our Shared Leadership system-wide councils, chaired by staff RNs, address issues pertinent to bedside practice. Councils and sub-committees are comprised of staff nurses, educators, nursing leaders and ancillary personnel such as pharmacy and respiratory therapy.

CoxHealth has officially launched a journey to earn Magnet designation. This represents best practice and will validate our excellent working environment for all levels of employee partners and the best possible care for our patients and their families.

We Want To Know is our annual opinion survey for all employees. Senior leaders make plans for improvement from survey feedback. We’ve made significant changes to benefits and communication practices based on honest opinions from our staff on past surveys.

New Nurse Luncheon: Nurses are invited to meet and interact with the CNO and VP of Human Resources, as well as the nurse recruiters, while enjoying a gourmet lunch. It’s an ideal occasion for asking questions and learning the inner-workings and opportunities of nursing at CoxHealth.

Each year, employees with five or more years of service are recognized at our annual Employee Service Award Banquet. Employees are honored every five years for years five through 25, and yearly after that.

Fall Fest is our annual employee picnic. Each year thousands of employees and their immediate family members turn out for this fun event.

CoxHealth also enjoys a wide range of community partner support — many local merchants offer discounts to CoxHealth employees.
