Child Care Benefits
Cone Health partners with Bright Horizons to manage and provide care for the children of our employees in a loving and nurturing environment at onsite child care centers located at the Alamance Regional Medical Center in Burlington, and Moses Cone Hospital and Wesley Long Hospital campuses in Greensboro. The Woodmont Center is available to employees who live and/or work in the Reidsville area.
Tuition is payroll-deducted and employees earning under $130,000 per year can contribute up to $5,000 pre-tax each year with the remainder as after-tax deductions. A tuition assistance program (TAP) may be available. If you earn $130,000 or greater in a year, you will be limited to a $3,000 annual pre-tax limit in order for Cone Health to pass the Non-Discrimination testing. The remainder will be after-tax deductions.
