Houston Methodist is offering its employees a $500 "hope bonus" if they meet several eligibility criteria, including getting a COVID-19 vaccination, President and CEO Marc Boom, MD, said in an email to employees, which was shared with Becker's Hospital Review.
Workers can look forward to the bonus in early March, according to the email.
"This bonus is a thank you for your perseverance throughout a difficult 2020 as well as something to look forward to, to provide hope, during the next couple of challenging months," wrote Dr. Boom.
Houston Methodist said eligibility criteria for the bonus will include getting the vaccine, and the human resources division will notify employees of the additional criteria soon.
